Search the Ir­ish Civil cen­sus in 30 mins

Many of us have an Ir­ish an­ces­tor thanks to the amount of em­i­gra­tion from Ire­land from the 19th cen­tury on­wards. Masses of civil records can be searched and viewed on­line for free at irish­ge­neal­ogy.ie – great news for those of us with Ir­ish roots! 1 Choose an op­tion to search, in this case ‘Civil records’ lo­cated at the top and to­wards the left of the page. You will then be taken to the search page where you can en­ter the known de­tails and the type of search you wish to con­duct. For ex­am­ple, the birth of Brona MaGee circa 1900. 2 Press ‘Search’ to be­gin. You will be taken through an au­to­mated anti-phish­ing page and will need to en­ter your name be­fore pro­ceed­ing to the re­sults page. In this case, there’s only one match­ing record. Click on the search re­sult and a tran­scrip­tion of that spe­cific en­try will ap­pear. 3 Click on the ‘Im­age’ op­tion at the bot­tom of the birth record to view a scan to print or down­load a full copy for free. You can do the same for mar­riages and deaths not sub­ject to clo­sure (births less than 100 years, mar­riages less than 75 years and deaths less than 50 years).
