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

Note that most historic Irish BMD records are freely available at, 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).
