This collection is an index of Irish marriages found in Walker's Hibernian Magazine, 1771-1812.

Helps for Keying Irish Marriages

Multiple Marriages When only one spouse is listed the marriage date may be found at the end (far right) of the entry. If there are multiple marriages (usually indicated by numbers 1, 2, etc.) key each marriage as a separate record. The marriage date will sometimes be found near the name of the spouse and may be in brackets. If the date is not near the name, it may also be found at the end (far right) of the entry. This date at the end (far right) of the entry may be for any of the spouses listed. Because of this fun occurrence, you will need to use logic in order to key the correct date.

Example: If the death date of the first spouse occurs before the date at the end (far right) of an entry, and the marriage date of the second spouse is given in brackets near the second spouse's name, then the date at the end (far right) of the entry should not be used for the marriage date of the first spouse, even if no other date is available to key.

Split Records Sometimes a record will carry over to a second image. If both images are in your image set, key any record information found on the second image to the record started on the first image. If your image set does NOT contain the first image of a split record (i.e. the first image in your image set is the second image of a split record), you will need to key a new record and key any marriage information available. Try to identify marriage place, date, spouse, etc. Leave any information blank that cannot be identified, including the primary person’s name.

Births and Deaths Please be aware while keying these records, that in addition to marriage records, you may also come across Birth and Death records. Instructions on how to key these is in the field helps.

However, if the primary person has a noble title such as “Lord” or “Earl” followed by a name in brackets, the name in bold should be keyed as the suffix with the word “of” and the name in brackets should be keyed as the given and surname. For example, if the name appears as “Aldborough, Earl [Edward Stratford], “Edward” is the given, “Stratford” is the surname, and “Earl of Aldborough” is the suffix.
