It depends on WHEN she was born

No records are available on the internet after 2005

so if she was born after that year, then she will not show up

If she was born before 2005, then you could try the following

Do a free search on ancestry, which carries records from July 1 1837 to 2005, and see if she shows up on there ......... you will need a sub in order to see the details, but at least this should tell you whether the records are there.

Then you can take it up with GR

On & off for a while now I have been trying to use search records, but a lot of the time the records have come up with No results found ,so earlier this evening I clicked on search records & I put in my nieces full name & the year of her birth & the area she was registered in, & guess what, search records came up with no results so I deleted my nieces christian name & just left all the other relivant details but, once again it came up with no results for the name & date I have put in. I know the details I have put in are correct because my niece lives with me & my family & has done since she was a few weeks old.can anyone tell me what is happening on the search records has anyone else had any problems ?
