|Baptism Homeby Baronyby Registration District|
Baptism and birth records organized here are by Registration District, which were set up as follows:
In 1863 Poor Law Unions became known as Superintendent Registrar's Districts in order to record births, marriages, and deaths and the Dispensary Districts became known as Registrar's Districts. The PLUs of Kerry were: Cahersiveen, Dingle, Glin, Kenmare, Killarney, Listowel, Tralee. These can be viewed in a map of PLUs.
Registration Districts - In 1898, the Local Government Act adopted the Poor Law Unions as the basic administrative unit in place of the civil parishes or baronies. The unions were subdivided into 829 Registration Districts and 3751 District Electoral Divisions.
