can't see this on the forum, forgive me if it is:

Births 1864-1914
Marriages 1845-1939
Deaths 1864-1964


BMD records from the General Register Office of Northern Ireland are now available to search online. Information is at https://geni.nidirect.gov.uk/

A free search is available without registration which will return the number of matches in each registration type.

Before you conduct a regular search the records you need to register for an account and buy at least one credit. You use credits when you request enhanced or full searches of the records. A credit costs £0.40. The basic search returns limited information.

Searches can only be performed for up to five year date ranges.

Time periods available are:

birth records from 1864 and over 100 years old
marriage records from 1845 and over 75 years old
death records from 1864 (including World War II death records) and over 50 years old

Thanks for adding this link - I had seen somewhere else that the images were on line but couldn't quickly see where and this lead me straight through to them.

I got the full details of the register images for my great grand parents' deaths which I had been holding off getting as I was not sure the references I had found previously were right - I have now got the information equivalent to a certificate for each of them for just £2 each!! much cheaper than a cert at £14.

Perhaps one of the admins could add the link to the Reference page.

We do have a link to the GRONI main page on the Northern Ireland (http://www.familytreeforum.com/content.php/338-Northern-Ireland)page - but as the online search is new, I've added a further link to that as well!

Hi Margaret,
I'm hoping to try this out some time this week. Are you able to save/download the images or is it just a view and print option?
Thanks,
Christine

There is no facility on the website to download or save, I tried a right click and got a message saying it was prohibited to print, save or take screen shots of the images on the site.

What you see is an image of the entry in the register and under it the transcript and reference details in case you want to buy a certificate - you can of course select that as an option anyway.

Good luck and happy finding!
Margaret

I have been back on the site and see that all my searches and finds have been saved for me on my account so I suppose I can refer back to that as and when I need to.

i wonder if screen shot is only prohibited if you use the mouse as your option? i have a button that i can press and it takes a screen shot.

i also wonder if this was designed on purpose? because i think that's rather pathetic. i mean scotland has prin outs and such, and an option to order a copy of the image.

I would imagine that it has something to do with copyright of the images.

According to the GRONI site, they are only saved for 72 hours. So be sure to extract all the information you need before they disappear.

still not a cool move. if scotland can do it, and maintain copyright, ireland can do it too. sounds like a way to make money to me.

Well I suppose you can't blame them in the present financial circumstances!

Thanks for pointing that out as I had assumed it would be the same as Scotlandspeople where they are kept for ever (as far as I can see).

apparently you can use 'snippet' available from windows 7 and later versions to save a copy of the cert. and also, if your computer has a 'print screen' button, you can press that, it takes a screen shot and you can crop down what you want.

other than that it seems the site is designed (like most sites about irish genealogy) to take money, and i certainly think it's wrong that you can't save images. if you don't get the information before it expires, or you lose the information at some point, you have no choice but to go back and view it again. it seems to me, that all sites concerning irish genealogy are desigend to be as expensive as possible, in the hopes (americans?) will spend money on their roots.

if scotlandspeople was the model, they could have designed it a little bit better. don't get me wrong, i think this is an excellent idea, but i don't like the way it was set up, and wonder if it will be tweaked at some point, like FMP is.

Is that from the GRONI website - or is it a suggestion of how you can copy the image as opposed to download/save.

Taking a snip tho' would be against the T&Cs of the site.

snippets are how people from threads i've found on the internet have done it. i dare say GRONI wouldn't like it, but i don't know if it's something they can block?

Like you say I doubt that they can block it, however it is against their Ts and Cs so personally I think it is something which is unwise to promote!
