Genealogy site FindMyPast has released two new sets of Irish probate records from the 19th century.

A new collection of more than 300,000 records created by the British Government's Inland Revenue Wills & Administration between 1828 and 1879 is now available to view on the site. 

The collection was created to determine tax obligations on Irish estates and features a number of rare documents that predate the Irish Famine. 

"These important records are a rare survival of priceless information about early Irish wills," FindMyPast said.

The collection includes indexes for all years between 1828 and 1879, while it also includes surviving registers from 1828 to 1839 which contain extracts from the original documents.
