Indirect Replacement (Link Type)
A category within the Virtual Record Treasury of Ireland metadata model. An Indirect Replacement is a ‘Link Type’. It describes a source that indirectly replaces archival series destroyed in 1922. Indirect replacements were not held by the PROI, but they originate from the same offices whose records were destroyed in 1922; and they were, therefore, created as part of the same transactional and archival processes as the lost 'originals' which they indirectly replace. For instance, some original public records were taken from Irish repositories and passed into private custody before the foundation of the PROI, and now survive in other repositories. These originals are indirect replacements for archivally related materials, which were accessioned by the PROI from 1867 and were destroyed in 1922. Similarly, parish registers were accessioned by the PROI, but many were later returned to their parishes and now are held by the Representative Church Body Library: these are classed as indirect replacements for the Parish Registers series destroyed in 1922. See also: Direct Replacement, Para-Replacement, Salved. For additional explanation, read the VRTI User’s Guide.

The spine of the Inventory of Loss is Herbert Wood’s Guide to the Contents of the Public Record Office (1919), supplemented by the ‘Transfer and Increment Books’ which record the accessioning of archives by the PROI from the 1860s onwards. These data have been structured into an electronic database by Beyond 2022.
