"The records held by the Registry of Deeds are a comprehensive source of property transactions in Ireland from 1708 to present day, and a unique source of information for family, local, social and economic historians. The Property Registration Authority has a long term vision to make the historical records of the Registry of Deeds available and discoverable online for research and the enjoyment of all. This project aligns with the strategic goals in its Statement of Strategy 2019-2021 Integrity and Innovation."
