Irish Civil Registration 1845-1958 Index online

Update!!!: See irishgenealogy.ie for an online civil records index. [updated 3rd July 2014]

New on the internet:

The Irish Civil Regsitration Birth, Marriage and Death records index from 1845-1958 are on Familysearch.org website at:
Irish Civil Records at familysearch

An index of Ireland Civil Registrations:

Births:
1864-1958
Marriages: 1845-1958 (note non-Catholic records from 1846-1864 only)
Deaths: 1864-1958

Note they are for all Ireland before 1922 after which the indexes are for the 26 counties only.

I found that there is a history of Civil Registration in Ireland, including a map showing the Poor Law Unions (Civil Registration Districts) at GRO Ireland. This might be useful as well as interesting.

    This is a surprise.

    The instructions and description of content are confusing. It will take a while to evaluate the site.
