General Register Office Searches

General Register Office

We attend at the General Register Office (GRO), which is the principle repository for records relating to births, stillbirths, adoptions, marriages, civil partnerships and deaths in Ireland. Civil registration in Ireland commenced in 1864, when it became compulsory to register these events.  

Non-Catholic marriages were being registered from 1845. 

We conduct searches in the research facility at Werburgh Street, Dublin 2, including for the purposes for family genealogical research.

Searched Indices include the following:

  • Births registered in the island of Ireland between 1st January, 1864 and 31 December, 1921 inclusive, and in Ireland (excluding the six north-eastern counties of Derry, Antrim, Down, Armagh, Fermanagh and Tyrone known as Northern Ireland) from 1922 onwards.
  • Deaths registered in the island of Ireland between 1st January, 1864 and 31st December, 1921 inclusive and in Ireland (excluding Northern Ireland) from 1922 onwards.
  • Non-Roman Catholic Marriages registered in the island of Ireland between 1st April, 1845 and 31st December, 1863 inclusive.
  • Marriages registered in the island of Ireland between 1st January, 1864 and 31st December, 1921 inclusive and in Ireland (excluding Northern Ireland) from 1922 onwards.
