Ministers Martin and Humphreys Announce Release of Additional Online Historic Civil Registration Records
Minister for Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media, Catherine Martin TD, welcomed this latest release:
“This release of an additional year of register data on the Irish Genealogy website, as provided by the Civil Registration Service, is part of the ongoing partnership between my Department and the Department of Social Protection.
“The aim of this continuing project is to make all these historic records freely and easily accessible to all members of the public via the www.irishgeneaology.ie website.
“I’m sure both new and returning visitors to the site, will welcome the addition of these records for continued research".
Minister for Social Protection, Heather Humphreys TD, added:
“The rich detail in the civil records of birth, death and marriages gives us a better understanding of our ancestors’ lifestyles and relationships.
“Civil registration records give us a really solid sense of our origins and provide our citizens and the Irish diaspora easy access to this wealth of family history.
“I therefore very much welcome the ongoing partnership between our two Departments, which has allowed us to make this latest tranche of information easily available from today.”
