As an accredited IFHF (Irish Family History Foundation) centre, Ulster Historical Foundation has compiled this database of birth, death and marriage records for Counties Antrim and Down as part of our commitment to broadening access to genealogical and historical data.
This database contains records entrusted to us by all major Christian religious denominations. As this information was given to us in good faith, Ulster Historical Foundation must insist that these records and this search mechanism are used for genealogical purposes only. Please respect the wishes of the churches and the rights of those individuals, and their families, named in these records. Use of this database is restricted to individuals (or their appointed agents) searching for named ancestors.
