This site also maintains an alpabetical listing of Civil Parishes showing the dates of the earliest records for a minority of the parishes. Civil Parishes are smaller than Catholic Parishes and the civil parish registers initially maintained by the Church of Ireland began to be recorded prior to those of the Catholic and other churches. Information regarding the content and timeframe of parish records can be found at the Genealogical Index.
