GRO's Dublin research room closed for two weeks

The General Register Office's Search Room in Dublin will be closed until Tuesday 9 August. Just like that. As if the service hasn't been bad enough for the last several months, when you don't know from one week to the next which days the office will be open, now we (the customers) weren't even advised of a complete closure until it had already happened.

What a disgraceful service.

The email service will still be running, so they say today. But that's not a good enough alternative for professional genealogists who need to identify correct documentation quickly.

(Thanks to professional genealogist Claire Bradley for the tip-off.)
