They are already online Dick – went up first thing Wednesday. Today is the official launch, but I’ve been up all night doing research into the Northern Irish records on the site, in case they get pulled at any point (they are offered separately by the GRO in Belfast on a commercial site).

Here are more specific dates for the available records. Families that left Ireland during the famine are not included.
“The years covered by the release of the historic records of Births, Marriages and Deaths are:
