Thanks to one of our readers, who kindly sent us a message, we are able to add another resource to our growing collection of heraldic documents on the internet. The Chief Herald of Ireland has recently published a series of about 35 volumes, which are available as digitised copies on the website of the National Library of Ireland. These include heraldic grants and confirmations of coats of arms, a register of knights, funeral entries (with the coats of arms of the deceased) as well as pedigrees. Most of them date from the seventeenth century onwards. The collection contains also one volume dating back to the fifteenth century, giving the names and the genealogy of the English monarchs from Biblical times to the reign of Henry VI (1422-1471).

If you made a similar find, please do let us know!
