Marriage certs 1913-1921 now available online

Following an upgrade to the Civil Registration Service computer system, researchers are now able to order electronically produced copy certificates for marriages registered between 1913 and 1921, no matter where on the island the marriage took place. They were previously available island-wide only for 1920 and 1921.

Applications for these certificates can be made at any local Civil Registration Service Office and via the online service (which has not, at the time of writing, been updated to reflect the extended availability).

Computer produced certificates for marriages from 1922 are also available via both routes, but only for marriages registered in the Republic.

These marriage certificates cost €20.

There has been no change to the availability of the much cheaper 'research photocopies' of bmd certificates dating from 1864 to 1921 (all island) and from 1922 (Republic only); see GROIreland.
