Irish civil registration indexes begin in 1845 for non-Catholic marriages. Civil registration indexes to births, deaths, and all marriages (including Catholic) begin in 1864. Indexes for all of Ireland continue from these beginning dates through 1921, when Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland became separate countries. Separate civil registration indexes continue for births, marriages, and deaths for the two countries from 1922 to the present.

'''All of Ireland, pre-1922:''' For 1845–1877, the national civil registration indexes are yearly and are arranged alphabetically by an individual’s family and given name. For 1878–1921, each year is divided into quarters, resulting in four index volumes per year.

Ireland kept two sets of registrations, one local and the other national. This document describes the national indexes, not the local ones. Prior to the separation of Northern Ireland from the Republic of Ireland in 1922, all national civil registration records and indexes for the island were kept by the General Register Office in Dublin. Beginning in 1922 there were two General Register Offices, one in Dublin for the Republic of Ireland and one in Belfast for Northern Ireland. Irish civil registration indexes begin in 1845 for non-Catholic marriages. Civil registration indexes to births, deaths, and all marriages (including Catholic) begin in 1864. Indexes for all of Ireland continue from these beginning dates through 1921, when Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland became separate countries. Separate civil registration indexes continue for births, marriages, and deaths for the two countries from 1922 to the present.

'''<u>Information on the Birth certificate</u>''':  
+
Civil registration indexes were created to provide name access to the records.
 +
 
 +
The indexes are made from the national set of civil registration records, which in turn are copies of the local registration records. Accidental omissions and mistakes have been made in the copying and indexing processes. Otherwise, the data is quite reliable. This section of the article is incomplete. You can help FamilySearch Wiki by supplying links to related websites here. <br>
 +
 
 +
Beginning in 1966, Republic of Ireland birth indexes include the birth date, marriage indexes include the marriage date and the spouse’s family name, and death indexes include the death date and the deceased’s marital status.

== Record Content  ==
 
 
All Ireland to 1922:
 
 
*Listed next to each name is the district where the event was registered (also known as the registration district, poor law union, county district), the volume, and the page number.
 
*Death indexes also give the age at death.
 
*The yearly birth indexes for 1903–1921 at the General Register Office include a birth date and the mother’s maiden name. Family History Library microfilm copies for this time period are of the quarterly indexes, which do not include a birth date or the mother's maiden name.
 
 
Republic of Ireland after 1922:
 
 
*The General Register Office for the Republic of Ireland (GRO) has registered and indexed events for the Republic of Ireland only. For 1922–1927, GRO copies of the birth index include a birth date and the mother’s maiden name. Family History Library microfilm copies for this time period are of the quarterly indexes, which do not include a birth date or the mother’s maiden name.
 
*For 1928–1965, all birth indexes are quarterly and give the mother’s maiden name but not the birth date of the newborn.
 
 
Beginning in 1966, Republic of Ireland birth indexes include the birth date, marriage indexes include the marriage date and the spouse’s family name, and death indexes include the death date and the deceased’s marital status.
 
 
Those using Record Search indexes should note that the microfilm which are of the General Register Office for the Republic of Ireland Indexes of Birth, Marriage and Death&nbsp; contain only index entries and do not contain further genealogical information. In order to obtain further information it is necessary to apply for either photocopy or certificate to the General Register Office.

== How to Use the Records  ==
  
Civil registration indexes provide the easiest access to civil registration records. Rather than searching district by district where names are not in alphabetical order, you can look in one name index for the period through 1921 and in either of two indexes after 1921.
+
To begin your search in the birth records, it would be helpful if you knew the following information:
  
=== How to Use the Index to Locate Original Records on Film  ===
+
*Name of parents
 +
*Approximate year of birth of child
  
Original records were microfilmed and can be ordered into FamilySearch Centers, affiliate libraries or viewed at the Family History Library in Salt Lake City.
+
To begin your search in the marriage records, it would be helpful if you knew the following information:
  
#To locate the number of the film you would like to order, click on the Catalog link on the FamilySearch website - [http://www.familysearch.org http://www.familysearch.org].
+
*Names of bride or groom

Ireland kept two sets of registrations, one local and the other national. This document describes the national indexes, not the local ones. Prior to the separation of Northern Ireland from the Republic of Ireland in 1922, all national civil registration records and indexes for the island were kept by the General Register Office in Dublin. Beginning in 1922 there were two General Register Offices, one in Dublin for the Republic of Ireland and one in Belfast for Northern Ireland. Irish civil registration indexes begin in 1845 for non-Catholic marriages. Civil registration indexes to births, deaths, and all marriages (including Catholic) begin in 1864. Indexes for all of Ireland continue from these beginning dates through 1921, when Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland became separate countries. Separate civil registration indexes continue for births, marriages, and deaths for the two countries from 1922 to the present.

Fill in the requested information in the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about the ancestors in the list to what you already know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to find your ancestor.
  
Civil registration indexes were created to provide name access to the records.

==== Using the Information  ====
  
=== Record Reliability [[|]]  ===
+
Each indexed entry in the online ''Ireland, Civil Registration Indexes'' collection includes the Civil Registration volume number and page number where the event was registered, as well as the registration year/quarter. Some original volumes were microfilmed and can be viewed at FamilySearch Centers, affiliate libraries, or the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. Others must be ordered from the Ireland General Register Office (GRO).
  
The indexes are made from the national set of civil registration records, which in turn are copies of the local registration records. Accidental omissions and mistakes have been made in the copying and indexing processes. Otherwise, the data is quite reliable. This section of the article is incomplete.

==== Tips to Keep in Mind  ====
 +
 
 +
All Ireland to 1922:
 +
 
 +
*Listed next to each name is the district where the event was registered (also known as the registration district, poor law union, county district), the volume, and the page number.
 +
*Death indexes also give the age at death.
 +
*The yearly birth indexes for 1903–1921 at the General Register Office include a birth date and the mother’s maiden name. Family History Library microfilm copies for this time period are of the quarterly indexes, which do not include a birth date or the mother's maiden name.
 +
 
 +
Republic of Ireland after 1922:
 +
 
 +
*The General Register Office for the Republic of Ireland (GRO) has registered and indexed events for the Republic of Ireland only. For 1922–1927, GRO copies of the birth index include a birth date and the mother’s maiden name. Family History Library microfilm copies for this time period are of the quarterly indexes, which do not include a birth date or the mother’s maiden name.
 +
*For 1928–1965, all birth indexes are quarterly and give the mother’s maiden name but not the birth date of the newborn.

When you copy information from a record, you should list where you found the information. This will help you or others to find the record again. It is also good to keep track of records where you did not find information, including the names of the people you looked for in the records.

Record Description

This collection will include records from 1845 to 1958.

All of Ireland, pre-1922: For 1845–1877, the national civil registration indexes are yearly and are arranged alphabetically by an individual’s family and given name. For 1878–1921, each year is divided into quarters, resulting in four index volumes per year.

The March quarter indexes events from January through March; the June quarter, events from April through June; the September quarter, events from July through September; and the December quarter, events from October through December.

The General Register Office created a second index for the years 1903–1921. This index is arranged by year and is available only at the office.

Republic of Ireland, 1922–present: For the years 1922–1927, 1933, and 1966 to the present, the General Register Office’s copy of birth indexes is filed by year while the Family History Library’s microfilm copies (1922–1958) are all filed by quarter. Indexes for all other years and all other events through 1966 are by quarter.

Northern Ireland, 1922–present: These indexes are quarterly, meaning there are four indexes per year.  These indexes provide: name, registration district, volume number, and a page number. This reference then can be sent to the General Register Office 1922-present to obtain a document or looked at 1922-1959 through The Family History Library or a Family History Center.

Northern Ireland from 1922-1959: HAS NOT BEEN INDEXED on familysearch.org under the Historical Records Portion as of 2011. Plans for this being indexed are not known.

Ireland kept two sets of registrations, one local and the other national. This document describes the national indexes, not the local ones. Prior to the separation of Northern Ireland from the Republic of Ireland in 1922, all national civil registration records and indexes for the island were kept by the General Register Office in Dublin. Beginning in 1922 there were two General Register Offices, one in Dublin for the Republic of Ireland and one in Belfast for Northern Ireland. Irish civil registration indexes begin in 1845 for non-Catholic marriages. Civil registration indexes to births, deaths, and all marriages (including Catholic) begin in 1864. Indexes for all of Ireland continue from these beginning dates through 1921, when Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland became separate countries. Separate civil registration indexes continue for births, marriages, and deaths for the two countries from 1922 to the present.

Beginning in 1966, Republic of Ireland birth indexes include the birth date, marriage indexes include the marriage date and the spouse’s family name, and death indexes include the death date and the deceased’s marital status.

How to Use the Records

To begin your search in the birth records, it would be helpful if you knew the following information:

  • Name of parents
  • Approximate year of birth of child

To begin your search in the marriage records, it would be helpful if you knew the following information:

  • Names of bride or groom
  • Approximate year of marriage
  • Names of parents for bride or groom

To begin your search in the death records, it would be helpful if you knew the following information:

  • Name of deceased
  • Approximate year of death

Search the Collection

Fill in the requested information in the initial search page. This search will return a list of possible matches. Compare the information about the ancestors in the list to what you already know about your ancestors to determine if this is the correct family or person. You may need to compare the information about more than one person to find your ancestor.

Using the Information

Each indexed entry in the online Ireland, Civil Registration Indexes collection includes the Civil Registration volume number and page number where the event was registered, as well as the registration year/quarter. Some original volumes were microfilmed and can be viewed at FamilySearch Centers, affiliate libraries, or the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. Others must be ordered from the Ireland General Register Office (GRO).

The Ireland Civil Registration microfilm collections listed in the FamilySearch Catalog include the following.
Marriage records, 1845-1870, with indexes to marriages, 1845-1921, in the General Registry Office of Ireland
Death records of Ireland, 1864-1870, with index of deaths, 1864-1921
Quarterly returns of births in Ireland, 1864-1955, with index to births, 1864-1921

If the registration date that was found in the online Indexes is not within the applicable year range noted above, order the record by following the instructions on the GRO website.

If the registration date is within the applicable year range:
1. Follow the link above for the appropriate microfilm collection.
2. Scroll down past the indexes to the matching event, year/quarter, and volume that were found in the online Indexes.
3. To order the film, click on the corresponding hyperlinked film number and follow the instructions that appear.
4. When viewing the film, use the page number that was found on the online Indexes record to scroll quickly through the microfilm and locate the original record.

Note: When any collection is sorted by quarters, the records for January, February and March will be found in the March quarter. The same pattern is used for the June, September and December quarters

Tips to Keep in Mind

All Ireland to 1922:

  • Listed next to each name is the district where the event was registered (also known as the registration district, poor law union, county district), the volume, and the page number.
  • Death indexes also give the age at death.
  • The yearly birth indexes for 1903–1921 at the General Register Office include a birth date and the mother’s maiden name. Family History Library microfilm copies for this time period are of the quarterly indexes, which do not include a birth date or the mother's maiden name.

Republic of Ireland after 1922:

  • The General Register Office for the Republic of Ireland (GRO) has registered and indexed events for the Republic of Ireland only. For 1922–1927, GRO copies of the birth index include a birth date and the mother’s maiden name. Family History Library microfilm copies for this time period are of the quarterly indexes, which do not include a birth date or the mother’s maiden name.
  • For 1928–1965, all birth indexes are quarterly and give the mother’s maiden name but not the birth date of the newborn.

General Information About These Records

Civil registration indexes provide the easiest access to civil registration records. Rather than searching district by district where names are not in alphabetical order, you can look in one name index for the period through 1921 and in either of two indexes after 1921.

Those using Record Search indexes should note that the microfilm which are of the General Register Office for the Republic of Ireland Indexes of Birth, Marriage and Death contain only index entries and do not contain further genealogical information. In order to obtain further information it is necessary to apply for either photocopy or certificate to the General Register Office.
