- This website - databases.dublincity.ie - brings together a number of databases produced by the Libraries & Archive Service. Most of the original records from which the databases are created are held by Dublin City Library & Archive, 138-144 Pearse Street. Much of the work in the delivery of this site, including database production, search interface, initial research and the preparation and editing of material, has been carried out by John Grenham, Genealogist.
More databases will be added as they are completed.
