In the event that you do not have a parish of origin, then please note that church registers will not be useful for your research. Unfortunately without precise location details (either a parish, townland, or the in the case of an urban centre, a street) we are unable to assist you with your enquiry.

Church of Ireland registers are organised by parish and we do not have general surname indexes. Civil records have been indexed by surname and are available for births and deaths from 1864 and for Church of Ireland marriages from 1845.  

For civil registration of births, marriages and deaths in the Republic of Ireland contact either:
Ireland’s official online Certificate Service:  
www.birthsdeathsmarriages.ie
or
General Register Office for Northern Ireland
(for births, marriages and deaths in the six counties comprising Northern Ireland after 1922):
