Irish civil registration indexes now online!


Active member
Without any fanfare, the LDS Family Search website added a searchable, and free, database of the Irish civil registration indexes on 23 January. It's a pilot site, so it's still being tested and it's a little temperamental, but it's going to make a huge difference to Irish genealogy research once its teething problems are sorted.

Civil registration in Ireland started with marriages in 1845. Births and deaths started in 1864. This database contains records from those dates for all 32 counties until 1921. From 1922 to 1958, only records for the 26 counties of the Republic of Ireland are included.

Enjoy! http://pilot.familysearch.org/recordsearch/start.html#p=2;t=searchable;c=1408347.
