GRONI lookup?
« on: Monday 23 March 20 15:45 GMT (UK) »
Hi all

Are there any rootschatters out there who would be able to do a lookup for me at GRONI in Belfast?
I have rang them and requested a search over the phone but due to technical difficulties it hasn't worked. It may be easier to just do in person but I do not live in NI. I'm willing to pay the appropriate fees for viewing the full certs.

I'm looking for a marriage certificate from c.1960 for a Gerard Kieran McCartney (or Kieran Gerard) and a Laura Patricia Smyth/Smith. Likely in Newry.

My biggest brick wall is finding the names of Laura's parents and I think her marriage cert will help me find an approximate DOB and father's name. I'm also looking for her birth certificate, but wouldn't know when to look without first seeing her marriage cert.

Could anyone help me out? I'm running out of options.

Thanks so much,
Ali

Back in March you were looking for a look up in GRONI.  I offered to do it on the GRONI terminals in PRONI whenever they re-open. However GRONI itself has now re-opened for phone callers and you get a search done that way. Probably easiest for you.

Hi, are there any roots-chatters in Northern Ireland who would be able to do a lookup for me at GRONI now it appears to have re-opened? The dates I need aren't online and I'm not travelling to Belfast any time soon (I live in Cornwall). I'd like to find the birth record for Leon Palmer born c.1924, died 30 Aug 1958 age 33 in a motorcycle accident in Portaferry. I'm trying to find out if he's the brother or half-brother of my grandpa, Basil Palmer. I can't find any record of the marriage of Basil's parents, Thomas John Palmer and Annie Thompson either and I know he was brought up by his grandparents.
Many thanks,
Rosheen

Don't have a sub to view and a name search is not bring up subsequent death notice so might have to just search for Funeral and read them for that week.
