For any of us that are doing Irish Genealogy and Research, September of 2016 was a big day for us. Why you ask?
Because that is when the civil vital records from Ireland's General Register Office, otherwise known as GRO went on line for free. To view civil records go to https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/agreement.jsprds
They have the following on line:
- Births 1864-1915
- Marriages 1882-1940
- Deaths 1891-1965
You can search their site for free and they have a lot of images to view. You will need to sign in and a small easy test to prove you are not a robot, but then you view all the images on line that are available for FREE.
There is a great section explaining what they have available and also a section telling you where to get other Irish records. some examples are as follows:
- Civil Records
- Church Records
- Census Records
- Property Records
- Migration Records
- How to
The site gives a great number of resources. If you have Irish Ancestors do not delay in checking it out.
