Hi

I wonder if anyone can help me please. I have a birth in Buttevant, 107th Foot Regiment in 1881 and I'd like to know how I go about ordering a birth certificate please?

There are so many websites and varying prices and unfortunately I don't know which one would be the best website to use.

Thank you in advance.

As Buttevant is apparently in County Cork, try this site. I have copied a post by Teresa from the excellent thread about Irish genealogy on Genealogy Chat. If it isn't what you want, you might find a better solution somewhere else in the thread.


Irish certificates can be purchased through here:

http://www.groireland.ie/ For Southern Ireland (Eire)

http://www.groni.gov.uk/index.htm For Northern Ireland BDM’s

I know for Southern Ireland, you have the option to have a certificate printed on a blank piece of paper which is cheaper than having it printed on the Official appropriate BDM Certificate. The information given is identical.

FMP has British National Armed forces Births 1761-2005 if you want to give some details (if on there, certificate will be available through the gro site at £9.25, but may be covered by the, at present, £6 offer)

or you might find something here (free) - https://www.irishgenealogy.ie
Possible if birth registered in Ireland, you might be able to view the certificate and download

Thank you all very much for your help. Sorry for the late reply. It is Beatrice E M Courtney that I'm searching for. Rather than jumping straight in and going to a site I wasn't familiar with, I have sent off for the Birth Certificate of one of Beatrice's siblings who was born in Wales. That way I'll get their Mother's maiden name. I will certainly have a look at these sites and send off for Beatrice's Birth Certificate and hopefully I can use the sites for other family members if needed.

Thank you very much for all your replies.

greyghost...

I hadn't realised that if FMP has the birth listed that I could order the certificate as Beatrice was born in Ireland. I shall try there first and try the PDF route (as I haven't tried that yet) as it will be cheaper than the Irish sites.

Thanks again.
