Ireland | Death | 1864-Present[edit | edit source]

Search Strategy[edit | edit source]

Search the following records in the order given.

1. Death Certificate: Civil registration[edit | edit source]

Civil registration is the government registration of births, marriages, and deaths. In these records you may find the name and residence of the deceased, sex, death date, cause of death, and the name of the informant. Civil registration death records cover most of the population and are indexed countrywide. Use Ireland Deaths, 1864-1870 - FamilySearch - How to Use this Collection to identify and obtain a copy of a death certificate.

2. Church Records: Church records[edit | edit source]

Church records are the christenings or baptisms, marriages, and burials recorded in registers by church officials at the time of an event. Burial records give the name of the deceased and the date and place of burial. If the deceased was a child, the father's name may also be listed in the record.

3. Census: Census[edit | edit source]

A census is a count and description of the population. Government census records are especially valuable because they list the majority of the population and are available at many repositories. In these records you may find names of the members of a household, gender, and each person's religion, marital status, relationship to the head of the household, age, address, occupation, and county of birth. Though many Irish census records have been destroyed, those that survive can provide clues that may lead you to other records.

4. Monumental Inscriptions: Cemeteries[edit | edit source]

Gravestone or monumental inscriptions can be a useful source of family history information. Sometimes, multiple family members are buried in the same vault or burial plot and the inscription will give information on all that are buried there. Inscriptions may give birth, marriage, and death information. They may also give clues about military service and occupation, or family members buried in the same area. Sometimes they give more information than the parish burial register or civil certificate of death. Monumental inscriptions are especially helpful for identifying ancestors who are not recorded in other existing records, and may give a birth date that cannot be found elsewhere.
