I guess what they can't do is reproduce the Birth, Marriage and Death certificates, which is what I'm interested in to do more research on part of my husband's family from the 1800s-mid 1900s.

No BMD certs were lost in the fire.

Not to poo poo this, for it's seriously welcome news.  But to set reasonable expectations for those reading this topic who are researching Irish family, my initial understanding is that this will not in any way materially redress the huge loss of census returns in the 1922 fire (ie. the 1821/31/41/51 census returns, bar the fragments) or the huge loss of other census returns for other reasons (ie. the 1861/71/81/91 census returns). Happy to be corrected on this census matter.  :)

Your correct, they can't replace lost records just collect up all the replacement/copies/alterative records available scattered about in different archives and put them digitally back in the Records Office. If as in the case of the Censuses there was nothing else where than they won't have it.

The principles of quantum determinism and reversibility mean that information cannot be lost!
