About Ireland, Births and Baptisms, 1620-1911

Civil registration for all births, marriages, and deaths began in Ireland in 1864 (registration of non-Catholic marriages had begun in 1845). Irish church records include both those of the Catholic Church, which historically has represented about 80 percent of the population, and the Church of Ireland, the official state church from 1536 through 1870. While the bulk of Church records begin in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century, some do extend back into the 1600s. for more click here
