The great news for those with Irish ancestors is that we now have a new database at the State Library – Findmypast Ireland.

It includes indexes to wills, a large collection of directories, cemetery transcriptions, land records and much more. Used together with the Irish Newspaper Archives, family historians now have access to more online resources for Ireland than ever before. Please note that the database can only be used within the State Library building. To access, simply type Findmypast into our online catalogue or click on the logo above.

Happy hunting!

  1. There are many people in WA who have ancestors who sought a new life here escaping the Potato Famine, these ancestors have been difficult to trace by virtue of their poverty. This will be another powerful tool for FH researchers, thanks SLWA and to the subject specialists for continue to make these great resources available.

  2. Fantastic news! I have several Irish ancestors in my family so I’ll definitely be heading to the State Library soon so I can do some more research.
