Registry of Deeds, Ireland

Ireland's Registry of Deeds at Dublin, Ireland was established in 1708. While you may view the indexes to the records in person at Dublin, these indexes and the corresponding deeds have been microfilmed and digitized by the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah and are available to view by creating a free account at There are a host of documents in this collection—deeds, wills, and other documents. Many are memorials (an abstract of the important parts of the deed that was registered or copied down for the records at Dublin). There are two indexes to the deeds: an index of grantors (those who are selling the land or lease) and an index to the lands (by county, by townland). Unfortunately, there is no index of grantees (those who are purchasing the property or lease).

Searching and transcribing this index and extracting names from the memorials is a tedious process which will take some time. Please be patient with this work in progress. Please contact us as volunteers are welcomed.

The O'Doherty Heritage website is designed to be your place for all things Ó Dochartaigh. Whether your name or ancestry is from a Doherty, Dougherty, Daugherty, Docherty, Dogherty, if your family used another spelling of our name, or if you're from one of our related Donegal families, such as the McDevitt/McDaid, McBride, McConlogue, or others–we welcome you to the O'Doherty Heritage website!

The vision of the O'Doherty Heritage is "Telling our story, uniting us together." This was the same vision of our ancestors, the Ó Dochartaigh patriarchs, when they established our Clan motto, Ár nDúthchas–which means 'Our Heritage'. Below are the goals of O'Doherty Heritage:


  • Share our heritage with our entire Clan

  • Research, document, & bring our history to life

  • Curate a digital Clan genealogy research library


  • Encourage quality genealogical research

  • Promote clan identity and pride in our heritage

  • Facilitate communication amongst our clanfolk
