Welcome from the Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht

Minister Humphreys I am very pleased to welcome you to irishgenealogy.ie the website dedicated to helping you search for family history records for past generations. Last year saw the introduction of a new search facility to explore a number of on-line sources of genealogical information e.g. the 1901 and 1911 Census returns, in addition to the Church records which were already available on the site. Now the site also contains the historic Indexes to the Civil Registers of Births, Marriages and Deaths. All of these records can be searched through the main search. The site will provide an information point for people starting to research their ancestors. I hope this helps all of you in your journey through your own family history.
