Great news for all of us searching 1864 onwards records !!

Published: Friday, 11 January 2019 15:54
We are pleased to advise that in early 2019, an additional 2 years of records of births, marriages and deaths will be added to the www.irishgenealogy.iewebsite. The marriage Index data along with additional images will also be updated for the years 1864-1869 inclusive.

The years covered by the release of the historic records of Births, Marriages and Deaths after this update will be:

Births: 1864 to 1918

Marriages: 1864* to 1943

Deaths: 1878* to 1968

* The General Register Office will continue to work on updating further records of Marriages dating back to 1845 and Deaths dating back to 1864. These will be included in future updates to the records available on the website.

The General Register Office is dealing with the feedback on the records – where records required correction this will be included in this updated release. Further details of this release will be confirmed early in 2019.

Yes!  (Although I shudder to think about how much I have spent on records that will soon be free)
So true, Barry.

I just sent them a reminder recently so it is good that they are now publicizing this. I need to temper this with the fact that they said nearly the same thing a year ago (adding only one additional year rather than two).  They did add  a few records between 1864 and 1880 but that was it.  Nothing new was added for 1917, 1942, or 1967 (B, M and D respectively).

When visiting their offices in Dublin a few months ago, it was obvious that there was lots of activity and everyone is hard a work so any delays are due to the volume of work to be done by painfully too few workers.  All in all, I would rather praise them for wanting to make sure things get done correctly rather than complain about the speed (or lack thereof).
