General Register Office (GRO)

The General Register Office (GRO) in Dublin was established under the Civil Registration (Ireland) Acts, 1844 and 1863 with the function to register births, marriages and deaths throughout Ireland and to provide certification of such. It also provided a public search facility in Dublin.

Presently access to the records (Indexes & Registration detail) of Births, Marriages and Deaths for all Ireland up to 1922 is only available through the General Register Office in Dublin. However, the Family History Centres of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (Mormons) have the Indexes to circa 1950 and some early Registration details on microfilm available in Ireland and overseas.
