Another Petty Sessions court records top-up

We have just made another 2.6 million court records available to search in our Irish Petty Sessions Court Registers 1828-1912 record set.

This latest tranche features 48 new courts in 18 counties around Ireland. A further 46 courts have been supplemented with records from additional years. This brings the total Petty Sessions Court Registers on findmypast.ie to over 20 million and the overall Irish family history records on the site to over 76 million.

Notable additions this time include a significant expansion to the records available for Cork, Kerry, Offaly and Tipperary. Limerick City court has also been added covering 1851-1913, which should prove a real boost for family historians with ancestors from the ‘Treaty City’.

The variety of cases heard gives a real flavour for life in Ireland at the time. Stealing heather, refusal to pay wages and owning weapons without a license are just a taste of the misdemeanors that can be found amongst the millions of registers.

The Petty Sessions are one of the most extensive collections of records about the general population of Ireland in the nineteenth century.

The below list details the additions to the collection:
