A leading genealogy website has uploaded over 21 million Irish birth, marriage and death records, spanning over a century of the nation's history.

Providing researchers with a crucial insight into the key events in their ancestors’ lives, the new release at findmypast.co.uk complements the collection of over 39 million historic Irish records already available to search on the site, which includes census returns and parish registers.

Launched in conjunction with the inaugural Irish Family History Day, the BMD indexes – which cover the 1840s through to the 1950s – will be permanently available to users who have purchased a worldwide subscription package, which also provides them with access to record sets hailing from the USA, Australia and New Zealand.

However, genealogists who sign up to findmypast.co.uk’s sister site findmypast.ie can view the records free of charge by visiting the Irish Family History Day page and following the instructions to activate 50 free credits, valid until Thursday 31 January.
 

“The addition of 21 million new birth, marriage and death records to our website means we will have more than 60 million Irish records on our website, enabling people to discover their Irish past no matter where they are in the world," explains Debra Chatfield, marketing manager at findmypast.co.uk.

"There has never been a better time for people to explore the lives of their Irish ancestors.“
