RE-ORGANIZATION (Feb 4, 2017):
We have started reorganizing the Website for better searching, including mobiles – the Original Start Page (How to correctly search Irish records is located at:
THE “IRISH GENEALOGY” WEBSITE AND (LIMITED) SEARCH FUNCTIONS IS BACK ONLINE (with limited data):
IrishGenealogy.ie has recently re-launched new versions of the civil registration indexes removed with unseemly haste 10 months ago: birth indexes now up to 1913, marriages to 1938 and deaths to 1963.
The good news is that access remains completely free, everything is easily browsable, and entries after 1900 contain significantly more information than the copies already available from the Mormons on FamilySearch.org (and FindMyPast and Ancestry). Birth index entries from 1900 now record the mother’s maiden name, making it possible to reconstruct families with some degree of probability, as is already the case on FamilySearch from 1928. And the marriage indexes supply the spouse’s name and exact dates starting in 1903, removing uncertainty from existing index searches between 1903 and 1938. Two hurrahs, so far.
