Oh, yes. I checked and devoured them🤣. I just imagined they couldn't possibly be free,. Thank you for making my day and for the extra link. I can now neglect all non-essential work and get stuck in.
Again, thanks.

someone else is better able to explain NI records than I am. I know that until 1922 they are at the site in the link above. After that, I have to look at my notes and bookmarks every time. I know they are available as follows:

Births 100 yrs or more in the past
Marriages 75 years
Deaths 50 years.


You need to bookmark this site, if you haven't already done so  ;D

Thanks, I have now done that and I can see that it will be useful in the future.

Oh my! As I said before, you are incredible. ::) So, please, can you tell me if all of these records you have sent for me were readily available and free on the internet? Or have you managed to access them because you have a paid sub to the site? I ask so that I can set myself up for future research in NI without having to ask for help.
Thanks again for all your time and assistance.
Just out of interest, I had managed to find the Newspaper notice re William being gassed. But I was just guessing that it was the right William for me.

Again my thanks. I did find in a newspaper of 1916 that a soldier aged 21 had been sent home after being gassed. I thought it could be my man and now i will be able to check.
Thanks for telling me how to put my errors right. Hope I don't have to do it again.

Oh Aghadowey, what a star you are! I imagine that you must be totally familiar with all these records in the same way I like to think I am with English ones.
I could never have managed it without you..
In gratitude, Ozzie Joan

Thanks to all the kind folk who replied. The idea of getting access to it was to be able to trawl through it. I have nothing but names to go by, not even exact ages and just hoped to spot something. Familiar or suggestive.
I need to re-think b4 continuing.

Antrim / William James BRADLEY/ Catherine Mc AVOY marriage
« on: Thursday 05 November 20 10:55 GMT (UK)  »
Hi,  ???
Two questions please, if anyone is able to assist.

Is there such a thing as a 1939 Register for NI? If there is, how can I access it, please?

I am looking for a marriage between William James BRADLEY (that is how the name is spelled on the birth certificate of their daughter Kathleen) and Catherine Mc AVOY. Kathleen was born 10 Feb 1926 and I have no idea if she had siblings. At the time of her birth, her parents were living at 11 Welsh Street and she was registered in Belfast Urban District 6.

The result of a search has given me a marriage in March 1919 In Urban No.12 R.C. between William James BRADY (not BRADLEY) and Catherine MC AVOY Registration No.1919/B1/2336/7/154
I don't understand the relevance of the numbers in that registration. Obviously, 1919 the year, and possibly B1 denotes the first quarter? As the names of the groom do not match how certain can I be that this is the couple that I am looking for? If I send for the full certificate, will it get me any nearer to my objective?

As a 2˝year +/- was allowed, I gave 1923 as the year to base the search on. After pointing out the difference in the name of the groom a second search was done based on 1926 and that still came up with only the same marriage.

This is the first time I have had occasion to delve into the records of Northern Ireland and I am not finding them easy :( so any help would be very much appreciated.

Does anyone know if a Register similar to the one for England and Wales, was produced by NI in or around that year, please? If so, where can it be found?
Thanks,
OzzieJoan
