News - General Register Office

From The Irish Independent, 19 January 2000

Service at office 'abysmal' - Proposals to ease congestion at the offices housing birth, marriage and death records by depositing microfilm copies in the National Library have been made in a report to the Minister for Health.

The report, compiled by the Council of Irish Genealogical Organisations (CIGO), follows a public meeting last year held to discuss the "abysmal" level of service supplied to the public at the General Registrar's Office in Lombard Street, Dublin.

It recommends depositing microfilm copies of the civil registers of births, deaths and marriages along with accompanying indexes up to 1900 in the National Library.
