Family Origins recognise that many of you are doing your own research and just want a bit of help here and there. Perhaps you want a marriage date, great grandparent’s names, census records or birth dates. Whatever your request, even if you think we are unlikely to be successful, just fill in the contact form and press send... We accept the challenge, you will be surprised!
Cost - £10.00 sterling per look up
Family Origins can look-up a specific record of birth, marriage or death in civil registration based on the information you provide. The more information you can give the better chance we have to find it. Fill in as much information as you can in the form provided. Leave blank anything you do not know, or give as close as possible information.
Please note that birth and death registration began in Ireland in 1864. Marriage registration for non-RC marriages began in 1845. All records may be searched up to the present day. Before these dates you will need to search church records for the appropriate information.
Cost - £20.00 sterling per certificate
