A new year of historical registers of births, marriages and deaths in Ireland has been published today.
People interested in family history and historical research are being invited to view the records on www.irishgenealogy.ie.
The records now available online include:
- Birth register records – 1864 to 1920
- Marriage register records – 1845 to 1945
- Death register records – 1864 to 1970
This is the latest release from the digitisation of historical registers, which aims to make records freely available and easily accessible to all members of the public both at home and throughout the Diaspora.
Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin, T.D., said: “This release of register data by the Civil Registration Service is part of the ongoing partnership between my Department and the Department of Social Protection, Community and Rural Development and the Islands. I know that this annual update is eagerly anticipated and will be of great benefit to anyone carrying out research on their Irish Ancestry”.
Minister for Social Protection, Community and Rural Development and the Islands, Heather Humphreys T.D., (which has responsibility for the Civil Registration Service) emphasised: “I am delighted that the Civil Registration Service has provided another year of historic Birth, Marriage and Death register entries to the www.irishgenealogy.ie website. I trust that this information will be of great use to anyone with an interest in genealogy and may act as a spur to those who would now like to start their own family history research”.
