Kildare Heritage & Genealogy Company

Kildare Heritage & Genealogy CompanyThe Kildare Heritage Project was established in late 1987 for the purpose of indexing the church records of Co. Kildare in order to allow easy access to genealogical information for people wishing to trace their family history. The project was commissioned and is jointly funded by Kildare County Library, and FÁS, the national training and employment authority, and it is sponsored by the Kildare Heritage and Genealogy Society Ltd.

Other work is undertaken by the project in conjunction with the genealogical database, including the transcription and production of bound volumes of the correspondence, diaries and notebooks of the Quaker families of Shackleton, Leadbeater and Barrington of Ballitore. This not only facilitates researchers but preserves the original documents which have been deposited with Kildare County Library.

The project has also mounted a number of exhibitions on such subjects as the forgotten heritage of County Kildare and the Great Famine in Co. Kildare.
