    I'm planning to look up stuff like births/marriages/deaths after 1920/1945/1960.

    Irish births, marriages and deaths?

    Well, I was going to look anyway, I haven't looked in a while at what they have, but they should at least show matches for baptisms and newspaper notices, I would imagine




  • So far as I can see the only Irish records for the 1900's at My Heritage are the census returns, burials and deaths from World War I.




  • Here's the full Irish collection at MyHeritage. I don't think there's anything unique to it.

    It's strange, Couldn't find some of the people I Searched for even though I knew their dates.

    It's free. Expect nothing, feel happy if you find something, but DO NOT give up looking elsewhere if you find nothing on MyHeritage - I've written before about that site being rubbish

    ........... My search results were so ‘off’ I thought I was doing something wrong, so I tried using details I knew. I input details for my grandfather born 1895, Co. Tipp. The results numbered 1,499 but despite the data input he did not appear in the first 40 ‘hits’ – most are in UK/US/Australia and after no.40 it goes into spelling variations of my surname. I then searched more precisely, for a Cork (born, married, lived & died) great grandmother using her name and year of birth, place of birth, place of residence and father’s name – that produced 842 results. The first is a woman of her name & y.o.b. but in New York. The second is a marriage for a woman of her name but the marriage is seven years before her birth. The next two are for Cork marriages when she would have been aged 9 and 13 years respectively and the fathers’ names are incorrect. By no.10 I’ve hit those in Massachusetts and Australia. After that the results are just names with ill-matched dates, taken apparently from CLDS etc., and the records have no images.

    In my opinion if you want a cheap (when on special offer) DNA test for use on Gedmatch buying one from MyHeritage is OK, but for Irish genealogical research it has very poor results and has been very disappointing for me.

    Me too!




  • I think with my heritage the benefits are discoveries from US based data and other people’s trees.
    My fortunate or unfortunate outcome in this case was ancestors back to grace O’Malley and Burke’s tribe . ( half of mayo have links back so nothing special ) but my discoveries are ridiculous ( thousands) . However I did get links to my great grandfathers origin through other people trees .
    So the more information you put in ( accurate or even vaguely approximate ) seems to generate more probabilities.
    I’m doing the dna test but am only hopefull .
    You would need ancestory or Irish ancestor database linked to really make it worth while.

    A tip for the INA is that if they have another offer during the year, say at Christmas, they will allow you add it on to your existing subscription. They are very decent like that, unlike some (much bigger) other sites.

    Wonder if they'll remind us of that at the time. I know I'll forget!

  • Irish News Archives have an offer on at the moment until July 11th - 40% off the Gold Membership (Code: July40) and 35% off the Silver Membership (Code: Silver35).




  • That's a great deal.

    I've got access through my university at the moment so let my sub lapse.

  • They (INA) also treat existing subscribers well where offers are concerned. Worth supporting even just for that.

  • The above discount codes for Irish Newspaper Archives are now expired.

    The code 'Gold40' is however currently active! AFAIK this is only applicable to Annual Gold subscriptions.





  • I tried to subscribe at the beginning of the month (+/- date of Spurious' post) but the site would not apply the discount (non-gold membership). That has happened before on a previous attempt.. This time I sent them an email but never received a response.





  • Surprised at that - they're normally very responsive. Have you tried them on any social media?

    Genealogy Forum Mod





  • I've sent them a reminder. I don't 'do' social media, I've (reluctantly) got a FB account to access certain sites and family gedmatch groups.





  • When I was having issues with INA a while back and got no joy from emails I phoned them and got speaking to the boss whose name escapes me just now.

    He was very helpful then and has been on one or two occasions since.

  • I found that if you are trying to apply a discount you need to select the box for the applicable subscription first.

    So for 'Gold40' you should have selected the years gold subscription and then apply the code.
