This Irish Genealogy site offers the Irish descendant (from New York, Canada, UK, Australia...) the chance to trace their Irish family tree and search for their surname origins and the records of their Irish ancestor's birth, marriage or death.

marriages, still-births and adoptions. The office does not engage in genealogical
research although the records can contain valuable information for anyone
compiling a family tree. Registers of births and deaths (from 1864) and
registers of marriages (from 1845).
