Ireland / GRO Ireland Research Room
« on: Thursday 06 August 20 11:37 BST (UK)  »
Just a heads up on something I read in an Irish genealogy forum - a procedure for purchasing the photocopy records of births/deaths/marriages via the research room. Excellent service from the staff in the research room. From start to finish yesterday - less than 2 hours.

Timeline
12.29pm - Sent e-mail for one marriage record (1953) and two death records (1876) and (1865).

12.32pm - Automated e-mail reply acknowledging.

1.59pm - GRO RR processed request and sent e-mail asking me to ring them for payment.

2.17pm - Rang them and paid by card.

2.21pm - Copies arrived by e-mail.

So, why don't you try it!

Edited to add:
The 1953 marriage was confirmed as a second cousin who, until two weeks ago, I never even knew existed!

World War Two / Is this the uniform of an aircraftsman in the RAF?
« on: Monday 11 November 19 18:40 GMT (UK)  »
Am I right in thinking that these two photographs show my late uncle, Robert Neilly, in the uniform of an aircraftsman in the RAF? They were both taken in Omdurman, Sudan in 1942 and he was always very partial to his pipe.  ;D  My late mum never told me what her brother did during WW2.  ???

Thanks, KG
