Irish General Register Office records


One of the peculiarities of the system of registration is that although the local Registrars were responsible for the Registers, the legal obligation to register births and deaths actually rested with the public, and was enforced with hefty fines. Marriage registration, on the other hand, was generally the responsibility of the officiating clergyman. The classes of people required to carry out registration in each of the three categories are given below, along with a detailed account of the information they were required to supply. It should be remembered that not all of this information is relevant to genealogical research.
