Researching ancestors in Ireland? Flex those typing muscles: Tomorrow, Jan. 24, Irish genealogy website findmypast.ie will let you access 21 million Irish vital records free in honor of its first Irish Family History Day.

This according to the Irish news websites IrishCentral and siliconrepublic.

The vital records, new on the site, range from the 1800s to 1958. Read more about them here.

Findmypast.ie is a website from brightsolid publishing, which also operates findmypast.com (US), findmypast.com.au (Australia and New Zealand) and findmypast.co.uk (England, Wales and Scotland), among other genealogy websites. When you visit from the United States, you may get a pop-up suggesting you use the American site, but you can just close it and carry on.

Also, if you’re in the United States, be mindful of time zone differences when you plan your search session(s). Findmypast.ie is based in Dublin, which is five hours ahead of the US East Coast.

Update: Now that Irish Family History Day is upon us, I found more information about this offer. Visit findmypast.ie’s Irish Family History Day page for a promo code that gets you 50 free credits to use the site’s pay-as-you-go records. The code is valid through Jan. 31.

  1. Hello G.I.,

    I tried to use the Irish Vital records at findmypast.ie and the US version as well & I was not allowed to without subscribing to their service. It is 12:15pm Eastern time,US so well within the time difference.

    Regardless, I enjoy stopping by your site from time to time.

  2. Hi, JP,
    Try this link: http://www.findmypast.ie/content/irish-family-history-day (or go to the findmypast.ie home page and click the Family History Day link at bottom left). It looks like the offer code on that page gets you 50 free credits to view record images, as opposed to unlimited free access, but the good news is the code is good through Jan. 31. You probably also have to sign up for a free registration with the site.
    I’ll update the post with this new info.
    Hope this helps!
