Open Your Door to Heritage: Registry of Deeds

The Registry of Deeds will once again participate in National Heritage Week in 2021 with two online events and the launch of a brand new video on book-handling.

National Heritage Week 2021 is about getting as many people to enjoy heritage as possible. We want to connect with groups and individuals who may not traditionally feel connected to local heritage. Our lunch-time virtual events are aimed at those who have never previously visited the Registry of Deeds. We will provide you with information on the history of the Registry of Deeds and its Henrietta Street building, and how to search our collections.

Title: Open Your Door to Heritage: Lunch-Time Online Event at Registry of Deeds

Booking required: https://heritageweek2021registryofdeeds.eventbrite.ie

Dates: Tuesday 17 August and Thursday 19 August 2021, 13.00-13.30

Did you know that the earliest volumes at the Registry of Deeds date from 1708? They were created using parchment and can weigh up to 14kg. Our video on book-handling will demonstrate how to carefully handle our records to ensure that they are preserved for future generations.  You are encouraged to watch the video in advance of making an appointment at the Registry of Deeds so that you are fully prepared for your first visit.
