How do I obtain an Irish Army birth certificate?
« on: Tuesday 19 September 17 13:55 BST (UK) »
Hello All,

I dip in and out of genealogy as I keep coming up against brick walls so I am not really a beginner, just not that great at knowing where to look. I recently joined Findmypast and found my g g grandmothers maiden name through her sister's marriage certificate. After weeks of searching I think that I have found her birth record. It is under GRO Army Birth Indices. The image and transcription does not give me much information just her name, year of birth and area, all of which fit. There is nothing else that tells me that this is definitely her. I have no proof that her dad was in the army. I was going to take a chance and buy the certificate but when I go onto the GRO website it is only giving me the option of England and Wales but she was born in Ireland. Any help would be appreciated.

It doesn't matter where in the world they were born, If you found the reference in the GRO Army Index, then you order from the GRO in the normal way.

I should have added welcome to Rootschat and click on Place an order, not the option to Search  the Indexes.

Thank you for all the replies. Her name was Mary Moore born in Dublin (Queen's County) 1855. Her Father's name was Michael. I have no other details for Michael apart from him being listed as a gardener and deceased on her sisters wedding certificate dated 1885.

I was under the impression that Queen's County was in Dublin. On all the censuses I have found it says Queen's Co. The army birth record I have found says Dublin. I have now ordered it. Do you think that this certificate will be wrong then? Geography is not my strongpoint. I did Google Queen's Co and I thought it said it was part of Dublin.
