An update of sorts...

From irishgenealogy.ie

Update to the Civil Records

Published: Friday, 11 January 2019 11:13

We are pleased to advise that in early 2019, an additional 2 years of records of births, marriages and deaths will be added to the www.irishgenealogy.ie website. The marriage Index data along with additional images will also be updated for the years 1864-1869 inclusive.

The years covered by the release of the historic records of Births, Marriages and Deaths after this update will be:

Births: 1864 to 1918

Marriages: 1864* to 1943

Deaths: 1878* to 1968

* The General Register Office will continue to work on updating further records of Marriages dating back to 1845 and Deaths dating back to 1864. These will be included in future updates to the records available on the website.

The General Register Office is dealing with the feedback on the records – where records required correction this will be included in this updated release. Further details of this release will be confirmed early in 2019.
So the promised delivery of all absent records by November has been well and truly kicked to touch.

Some good news is better than no good news. But it's those early deaths that are so useful in taking us back into the 1700s, if the person was elderly when they died.

Pleased to hear this, even if it's not what was promised.

Just yesterday I wanted to check a 1918 birth and it seems like I'll be able to do it soon.

Semantics question: at which month does "early" end? I suspect April.

Immature it may be, I know, but my only response is to roll my eyes and mutter 'whatever...'

I'd rather they said nothing and announced when it was done.

Exactly.

If anything needed to be said it was an apology for the delay instead of presenting a retrograde step as a development.

Hi, I'm trying to locate the civil marriage record of Conway and Lyston (Liston) who were married in Kilteely/Dromkeen, Co. Limerick on 11 April, 1869 according to parish register? I'm looking for fathers' names. Thanks

That year's marriages aren't online yet. You can get it from the GRO.

Welcome to the world of ‘spin’.
  • 1. Minister announces a ‘great news’ project A, but fails to give deadline date or quantify the resources dedicated to it.
  • 2. Civil servants get stuck with the next flavour of the month project B, are told to run with it and they forget about/have insufficient resources for project A. (Got to keep the boss happy.)
  • 3. Electorate asks about project A, is generally ignored or fed a line of waffle. The original end-date was hazy anyway!
  • 4. Cognizant of possible fall-out, the Minister’s minders issue a press statement in which earlier promises/delays/mistakes/negatives are totally ignored and a ‘new’ (i.e. revised) statement is issued. It of course says much the same thing, watered down, but announced as new ‘good news’.
  • 5. A journalist is asked by an editor to cover a topic s/he knows little or nothing about (and has no interest in) so s/he copies/cuts/pastes the ministerial line out of laziness/lack of interest/a hangover.
The Minister for Arts Heritage and the Gaeltacht has one role and one set of minders. The benefits of the GRO project accrue mainly to Tourism, which has a different minister & minders, about whom the former 'crew' cares not a fig. The fact that Tourism is an Independent makes it even less interesting and that it is Shane Ross is even worse.

Ministers will only apologise when backed against a wall by a baying media/electorate. It takes several deaths for that (maybe) to happen; certainly a series of missed deadlines is not sufficient!

But where would you find more deaths than in the GRO records?

At least it's something

Already mentioned in a thread on the matter some weeks back.

One could reasonably argue that it's less than something as what they're promising is less than what was supposed to have been delivered two months previous to this announcement.

Also there's no date! It's a non-announcement.

I'll merge the threads so everyone can have a collective heart attack.
