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!

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

Thanks for that advice, Kiltaglassan.

I would often visit the Registrations Office in Dublin to do some research. I ordered some copies last night after reading your post and had them in my Inbox this morning at 11.25. A great service!

Indeed it is, Marcello and much faster than applying to Roscommon.

Enjoy your ancestor hunting!  ;D ;D
