Working for me.

I trawled my tree and correlated the index references, but we won't know until the launch how we access the certs. For now, presuming it's a a name/place/year (or DOB/DOD/DOM) search. The index references may be obsolete, or at least obsolescent.

I haven't bothered making a list because I'll be working through every branch of my tree. A list would just be everybody.

new 'image' link appearing on index records on IrishGenealogy - see Joe Buggy's twitter post

I was able to see an image for an 1868 Rathdown birth - full page of the register with 10 births

That is good news.
When I first purchased certs in Joyce House in the 90's you got an image with more then one entry which was great when trying to decipher difficult handwriting.

I wonder does this mean we won't be able to browse the registers? That would be unfortunate, because there are certs I haven't been able to locate by searching the indexes.

Same here, I got access to two records so far by searching by name! This could be a very unproductive day work wise!!

seems to be births only at the moment - haven't found any image links for deaths or marriages. Easy enough to access a batch of records to analyse later - e.g. just downloaded all the pages with births for one surname in a single district for 10 years, including my grandfather and his siblings.

I found one for a 1933 death. Haven't searched for more than that yet.

Able to access Deaths aswell as births. Will be a very busy day for me

Update: some of the indexes don't have any image.Its says:
There is currently no image to display. This may be because the record was registered or amended in a later year, or there are quality issues with the original image. I wonder does that mean some havnt been uploaded yet as the official launch day still a bit off as it gives you a link where you can order a copy?

I'm able to see my great great grandmothers sisters birth record, and she's still alive (and 101) - must get on to the DPC immediately!

(actually, there's an illegible callout on the side of her entry, think its a clarification of spelling of a middle name but not certain. She's sharp enough to still ask the question to though)

Getting this for a lot of death records between 1865 to 1900:

"There is currently no image to display. This may be because the record was registered or amended in a later year, or there are quality issues with the original image.

Photocopies or official certificates can be obtained via the following link.

If you have any further queries you can contact the General Register Office at gro@groireland.ie."

Two great-great-great-grandfathers named and death date windows narrowed down already. I must remember to do some actual work today...

that's what I'm seeing for any of the deaths or marriages of interest to me - is it just later records for these that seem to be available ?
