The idea of this index to help people trace their Irish ancestors. Especially those who are unable to locate the marriage of an Irish ancestor, who may have passed through Liverpool, before they found a home in some distant land. Some the entries in the RC marriage registers contain useful family history information, like an address in Ireland, or the name of the mother. Some the marriages do not appear in St. Catherine's marriage index due to various reasons:

This index contains information on over 64,000 individuals, mostly Irish or of Irish descent. The marriages took place in various RC churches in the Liverpool area between 1800 & 1900, the majority were after 1850.
