Royal Irish Constabulary records
Transcribed records from the Royal Irish Constabulary have been added to the Ireland Genealogy Project Archives, mainly from the 1840s. They are indexed by county of origin, making any RIC ancestors much easier to trace. To access them, click on www.igp-web.com/IGPArchives/, then county of origin, and then the Military and Constabulary link.
An incomplete index to just under 70,000 RIC records from 1816-1921 is available on Ancestry at http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/db.aspx?dbid=6087. The original records, held at the National Archives at Kew, are slated for digitisation in the near future by the archive.
