About the family research centre
The Tipperary Family History Research facility (TFHR) was established to provide a research service to those people who have Tipperary ancestry, enabling you to have your ancestors records found and increase your knowledge of your family history. We hope you'll find our services and this website useful to you in your research and look forward to working on your behalf.
Tipperary Excel Heritage Co. Ltd administers the records on behalf of the Archdiocese of Cashel & Emly and is a non-profit-making organisation and a registered charity.
Tipperary Family History Research is the only facility to offer a research service based on access to the Baptismal and Marriage records of the Catholic Church in the Archdiocese of Cashel & Emly. The Archdiocese covers most of County Tipperary and part of County Limerick and it contains 46 Parishes (map).
On this site you will find advice on research within the Archdiocese and Tipperary in general, contact information, useful links to other resources, maps relevant to your research, details of our services and the associated costs and the opportunity to commission research directly by completing a research request form.
We are also pleased to offer access to Memorial Records for World War I and can provide a search facility of this database. We can offer details on the regiment, rank, place and date of death of Irish Service Men and Women who fought and died in this war. To request a search, please telephone ++353 (0) 62 80555 or 80520
