Irish BMD register indexes delay

Claire Santry is reporting on her blog that the promised release of BMD indexes for Irish civil registration records on Irish Genealogy ( has been pushed back until after Christmas. The indexes will be more complete than those offered already online, with other additions such as mother's maiden names from 1903 to 1927 on birth records, and a complete run of indexes to the present day for the Republic for births, marriages and deaths (and up to 1921 for Northern Ireland). No new deadline has been given, but Claire is stating her belief that "the delay is likely to be a matter of weeks rather than months".
