Ups and downs

A couple days ago I passed along Claire Santry’s blog posting about the release of General Register Office civil records free on If you’ve been following her story, you know the website has been experiencing ups and downs for several days.

Here are the types of records that should be available so far, with earlier years to be added:

Births: 1864-1915

Marriages:  1882-1940

Deaths:  1891-1965

Unfortunately, the Irish families I’ve been researching came to America before civil record-keeping began in Ireland; nonetheless, I look forward to digging around.

Keep an eye on Irish Genealogy News for the very latest updates on the subject.
