Early Irish civil registration record images on FamilySearch

The FamilySearch website has added some civil registration records to its digitised holdings. These are as follows:

Births 1864-1913
Marriages 1845-1870
Deaths 1864-1870

The records are for the whole island of Ireland, but can only be accessed if you have an account with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or if you attend your nearest Mormon family history centre or FamilySearch affiliate library.

The collection is available at https://www.familysearch.org/search/collection/2659409

Note that most historic Irish BMD records are freely available at www.irishgenealogy.ie, although the records for marriages from 1845-1869 and deaths from 1864-1877 have still to go online (projected for the middle of next year).
