GRONI is the General Register Office Northern Ireland and you use it to access historic civil birth, marriage and death records. It works like Scotland’s People for Scotland where you buy credits then use the credits to pay for images of the records. Civil registration began in Ireland in 1845 (including the North) with non Catholic marriages and for all births, marriages and deaths from 1864, so civil records only exist from these dates. You can only access online birth records over 100 years old, marriage records over 75 years old and death records over 50 years old. For more recent records you will need to apply online for a copy of the certificate. Important Note: You only need to use GRONI for records from 1922. You can access Northern Ireland BMD records for free before this date from Irishgenealogy.ie.

n the 1950s, the National Library of Ireland microfilmed all the Roman Catholic baptism and marriage registers up to 1880. These microfilms have now been digitized and are available to browse and view for free on this site. They cover the whole of the island of Ireland. Some registers start around 1740-50, but most are later, some not starting until the mid 1800s. You need to know the parish where your ancestors came from as the records have not been indexed on this site. However, they have been indexed on Find My Past and you can search them for free, although you will have to set up an account.
