== Civil Registration of Births, Marriages &amp;&nbsp;Deaths  ==
 +
 +
Government-sponsored registration of births, marriages and deaths began in 1845 (Protestant marriages only) and 1864 (whole population). To find information on the vital events of your irish ancestor, here are some helpful websites for obtaining critical information:
 +
 +
<br>
 +
 +
1.[https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/list FamilySearch.org ]- has online indexes for births, marriages and deaths; click "All Records Collections", then scroll down to and click&nbsp;"Ireland Civil Registration Indexes, 1845 to 1959".
 +
 +
2. To obtain&nbsp;certificates of birth, marriage or death for your ancestor[s], write to or contact the following record office; the cost is €10 (about $13) per certificate:
 +
 +
&nbsp;&nbsp; General Register Office, Government Offices,<br>&nbsp;&nbsp; Convent Road Roscommon.<br>&nbsp;&nbsp; Tel: +353 (0) 90 6632900<br>&nbsp;&nbsp; LoCall: 1890 252076<br>&nbsp;&nbsp; Fax: +353 (0) 90 6632999<br>&nbsp;&nbsp; Fax: +353 (0) 90 6632988<br>
 +
 +
There are fees for performing particular&nbsp;searches; see [http://www.groireland.ie/fees.htm their website] for further information.<br>
 +
 +
<br>
 +
 +
== Estate Records  ==
 +
 +
Estate records may provide names of households in such records as leases, rents, and mortgages. These ought to be consulted and used when extant, especially when church registers do not exist for the time period being researched. Here are some web sites which hold estate records and some transcriptions of same:

The Representative Church Body Library has all surviving Church of Ireland registers. Some copies are held at:

  • the local parish
  • local archives and libraries
  • FHL (Family History Library) has few transcription copies of Church of Ireland parishes


Presbyterians

The vast majority of Presbyterian chapel registers have never been centrally archived, and thus are found in various locations. [Regretably, preservation of these precious records and the rich Presbyterian heritage of local Presbyterians as well as descendants of same, at large whose roots originate from Ireland, are at risk unless and until such time as when these registers are all copied into at least microform or, better--a digitized format.]

You must conduct exhaustive, thorough studies to determine to which Presbyterian denomination your ancestor belonged; and to then, determine the whereabouts of surviving registers--if any. The following most likely places to find and search Presbyterian registers starts with checking the following locations:

  • the local Presbyterian congregation/church (if still in use)
  • distant Presbyterian chapels (if the local chapel closed)
  • town libraries
  • county archives/libraries
  • PRONI (Public Record Office of Northern Ireland)
  • The National Archives, Dublin
  • The National Library of Ireland
