Rosaleen, are you sure about that? I would think the Irish were always
Irish. They were just ruled by Britain. Just like Britain ruled India. I
don't think the Indian population were British just because they were part
of the empire.

I would agree that the record keeping system for vital statistics were
British up until some point after the War of Independence.
