Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
I have recently updated my list of Archive and Library resources for
Donegal and what is now available online is astounding, especially when
compared to what was available online even 10 years ago..........let
alone when I started and there was practically nothing but my website!
This link - http://donegalgenealogy.com/ArchiveRes.htm - will take you
to my page which lists, amongst others :
the GRO index to Irish births, marriages and deaths (many digitized,
free to search and download the original Superintendent's returns)
1857 Griffith's Valuation
Tithe Applotment books
1901 and 1911 census returns
Wills calendars from PRONI
Catholic Parish registers
Some Non-Catholic registers
Happy hunting :-)
All the best,

Hi! The cost is between free and 4 euros.................the GRO Ireland
have their births, marriages and deaths indexes online, with many
digitized, free to view and download!
As best as I can see, all births from 1864 to 1916? are digitized and
online - just search for the name, location and date range. Marriages
are digitized from 1882 and deaths are digitized from 1891.
When you select one of the digitized records, there is a link at the
bottom of the entry to the image - click on that and you get a view of a
pdf image of the original Registrar's return.
If you need an image which isn't digitized, there is a link at the
bottom of each entry, telling you that photocopies or original certs can
be ordered, and that will take you to a page where you can load a form
for the photocopies or further info on ordering a full certificate.
The cost of photocopies is 4 euros, can be paid by cheque, postal order,
Visa or Mastercard, and you get an option to have the photocopy emailed
to you! The form has to be either posted or faxed to the GRO (full
details on the form).
The link to start your search is here -
Hope that helps!
All the best,

Would someone please advise as to the cost of a xerox copy of the above-mentioned certs in US Dollars when ordered from the GRO? I know I have to send a credit card # but would like to have a good idea of the cost before I order a dozen or so & then “break my bank.”
Thanks for the help.
