Explore your Family History

Our burial records, 1.5 million of them (and counting) date back to 1828 many of which are available to access anywhere at any time on our online database.  

Resident Genealogist, Lynn Brady MGSI is on site from 10am - 5pm, Monday - Friday.  She has helped people from all corners of the globe to delve deeper into their Irish heritage.  When people discover that they have relatives in the cemetery, they sometimes choose to leave a tribute or memorial on the grave which can be acquired at our Monuments Works headquarters here in Glasnevin Cemetery.
