Description:
This year, 1995, we celebrate the 150th anniversary of the introduction of a civil registration system to Ireland. In 1845, legislation came into force which provided for the registration of civil marriages here and for the regulation of all non-Roman Catholic marriages. The Act also created the Office of the Registrar-General who remains to this day responsible for the collation and custody of all birth, death and marriage records. Further legislation came in to operation in 1864 which provided for the registration of Roman Catholic marriages and the registration of all births and deaths. A comprehensive reiistration system was in place in Ireland from that date
