Irish Marriage Records

Hi all!! I am posting on behalf of a friend who has only recently started tracing her family tree. Unfortunately, although I have been researching mine for the last 8 years or so I am unable to help her as have no idea where to start with information, records and certificates etc regarding Irish roots.

Is it possible to look online at the marriage of William Lavery to Henrietta Kelly in Belfast on 5/4/1920 and if so where can she view it? More importantly where can my friend order the marriage certificate from?

Do Irish Marriage certs give out more information as opposed to those in the UK?

Any advice of where to go next would be very much appreciated!

Many thanks in advance.
Christine

Re: Irish Marriage Records

I don't think the original marriage record can be viewed online, and to purchase a cert, you'll need to apply HERE. or HERE.

Research certs are €4 Euro's(the last time I went there, the GRO. Ireland)......I'm going there, sometime next week, so I can purchase a research cert for you, if you like.

It will cost £15 from GRONI.

The Research cert, has exactly the same information, and original writing, as on the actual marriage cert, just not on a pretty page layout.

Photocopied of course, the same as historic UK certs.

Yes you can look at the certificate on-line, and it should only cost you £2.50. Use the GRONI website, using the ďsearch registrationsĒ option (as opposed to ordering a certificate):

https://geni.nidirect.gov.uk

You will need to open an account and buy some credits.

GRONI donít offer a research copy option (ie a photocopy) so if you want a paper version, then ordering it from Roscommon is the best value. If you want a formal certificate for legal purposes, Roscommon charge 20 euros and GRONI £15 so thereís not a lot in it. GRONI are quicker at posting them out though, generally within 48 hours.

Irish marriage certificates from the 1920s have exactly the same information as English ones.

Re: Irish Marriage Records

Elwyn, how long have we been able to view certs online.?

And do you always need an exact date in the search boxes.

It's been a while since I looked at GRONI.

Steve,

They have been on-line like this for about 2 years. Thereís a cut off period, 100 years for birth, 75 for marriages and 50 for deaths, so for a birth, marriage or death in say the 1970s, you still need to contact GRONI.

You donít need an exact date for the event, you can search in batches of 5 years, eg 1864 to 1868.

With marriages it gives you the exact date of the marriage and the spouses name free, in the indexes. So better than Roscommonís indexes which just tell you that it was one of four names, and only the quarter.

The variant searches arenít very good. So for example if you search Smith it may not pick up Smythe, nor Jean for Jane. There are also some truncated names eg Wm for William (where Wm is used on the certificate) and it doesnít match those up. You often have to search each separately.

Re: Irish Marriage Records

Aaah, 2 years, that explains it. I've only been back online for almost a year, having been offline for 2.
Things change so quickly, it's hard to keep up.

Re: Irish Marriage Records

This is an example of what a research cert looks like. It was printed on plain A4 paper.
