The Monday message from the Clare Roots Society alerted me to good news: “the civil indexes are up again at Irishgenealogy.ie.”
The website (www.irishgenealogy.ie/en/) says:
The Indexes to the Civil Records of Irish Births, Deaths and Marriages date from 1864 with non-Roman Catholic Marriages recorded from 1845.
The indexes to Births over 100 years old, the indexes to Marriages over 75 years old and the indexes to Deaths over 50 years old.
Obviously the site has not restored all the data we used to see there, but this is a small step in the right direction.
