“Irish Civil Registration – Post Famine Research Using Civil Records”
Miles Davenport AG ®
When: 10:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 14th, 2020
Where: Class will be held virtually through Zoom
This workshop will provide participants with an in-depth look at the Irish Civil Registration process and resulting records that can be used to identify individuals’ vital information after the 1845/1864 Irish civil registration process was initiated. The workshop will demonstrate how to find birth, marriage, and death records utilizing online sources containing both indexes and images of original records. The focus of the workshop will be on the understanding of and use of non-Catholic marriage records beginning in 1845 and all birth, marriage, and death records beginning in 1864. A case study using only civil registration materials will illustrate how to locate and interpret these records and use them to determine multi-generational family relationships.
