New Databases in our Members Area

One of the many benefits of Guild Membership is access to over 200 historical databases that are only available to members, and we have just added 10 more databases to that list. These contain over 17,000 new records that are only available to our Guild Members.

These new databases include:

  • A List of People granted Freedom of the Corporation of Coleraine in 1832
  • A Subscriber List for the book Heterogenea or Medley for the Benefit of the Poor
  • A List of People Holding Railway Shares in any of the Irish Railways in 1847
  • A List of Members of Parliament in Co. Down from 1585-1885
