A new and improved set of Irish civil registration indexes has been launched on IrishGenealogy, the state-run website best known for its church records microsite. These free indexes differ from those currently available via FamilySearch, Ancestry and findmypast by including births, marriages, and deaths right up to 2013 - as well as a certain amount of additional detail to aid identification.
"The Births Index, which dates from 1864, includes the mother's maiden surname from 1900. Additionally, the actual date of birth is included from 1900 to 1927 and from 1966 to current. The Marriages index, which dates from 1845 for non-Catholic marriages and from 1864 for all marriages, includes the names of both bride and groom for all marriages from 1913, and for some marriages from 1900 to 1912. The Deaths Index, which starts in 1864, includes the age at death from 1924 and the marital status of the deceased from 1966.
"As with the pre-existing online database, the new GRO Indexes cover the entire island up to and including 1921. Thereafter, it includes only those events registered in the Irish Free State/Republic of Ireland.
Almost all of the STERRY events listed in these new enhanced indexes relate to one Dublin family descended from John Edmund Bagge Sterry [1889-1965] and Mary Margaret Felton. John Edmund Bagge Sterry and his descendants can be found on the Southwold, Suffolk, UK Sterry tree.
Details on this Dublin Sterry family can also be found on the My Heritage website on the well researched Dolan-Haugh Family Tree. You need to sign up [for free] and login to view.
