GRONI adds Irish BMDs

BMD records from the General Register Office of Northern Ireland are now available to search online. Information is at https://geni.nidirect.gov.uk/

A free search is available without registration which will return the number of matches in each registration type.

Before you conduct a regular search the records you need to register for an account and buy at least one credit. You use credits when you request enhanced or full searches of the records. A credit costs £0.40. The basic search returns limited information.

Searches can only be performed for up to five year date ranges.

Time periods available are:

  • birth records from 1864 and over 100 years old
  • marriage records from 1845 and over 75 years old
  • death records from 1864 (including World War II death records) and over 50 years old
I've not had a chance to try this. If you do please post a comment on your experience.
