Index to millions of Irish birth, marriage and death records available online

Map of IrelandIf you’re researching family history in Ireland, the chances are you will find some of your ancestors’ names on the Irish Family History Foundation’s website. Their Online Research System has indexed over 10 million births, marriages and deaths from 18 of Ireland’s counties.

Visit their website at http://www.irish-roots.ie/ and register your details. You can then click on the map of Ireland to begin your search. The results list is free but you need to pay to view the full details.

This map of Ireland shows the current coverage of the database. The website is still under development, with more refined searching planned for the future and more counties coming online all the time, so it’s worth checking the website regularly.
