NEW GRAVEYARD RECORDS ONLINE VIA THE SKIBBEREEN HERITAGE WEBSITE


Records for three West Cork graveyards are now available online for the first time. The burial registers for Brade, Schull and Allihies graveyards have been digitised and are on the Skibbereen Heritage Centre website www.skibbheritage.com. The 'Skibbereen Funeral Register' is also newly uploaded to the website and this records over 2,000 burials in various graveyards in the Skibbereen area.
With the co-operation of Cork County Council, Skibbereen Heritage Centre has been digitising burial registers for West Cork graveyards and now has a total of 16 burial registers online. Those available are Abbeystrowry, Ardagh, Ballymoney, Dursey, Brade, Castlehaven, Durrus, Fanlobbus, Kilcaskan, Killbarry, Kilmacabea, Schull, Tullagh and Whiddy Island. Some of the registers only cover a few years of burials but all information available is now freely available worldwide.
The Skibbereen Heritage Centre website also includes the survey results of 12 local graveyards, Abbeymahon and Chapel Lane in Skibbereen, 2 in Aughadown, Caheragh, Castlehaven, Drinagh, Drimoleague and 2 more in Kilcoe.
Other records online on the Skibbereen Heritage Centre website include land records, the Tithe Applotments, Estate Records, Loan Funds and some school registers. The Centre will continue to digitise local records, including other burial registers, as they become available.
