Microfilm copy of original records in the Public Record Office, Dublin.

Prior to 1858 all of Ireland was subject to the jurisdiction of the Province of Armagh for probate matters. The Prerogative Court had jurisdiction over all persons with goods valued at more than 5 pounds in more than one diocese. All of the original records of the Prerogative Court were destroyed in 1922. Only indexes and six will books containing copies of wills were salvaged. Some index books were damaged by water or fire, resulting in loss of some pages and staining of many surviving pages.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
