Both Irelands blow the ceiling off of BMD prices!!

Both Northern Ireland and the Irish Republic have very recently exploited expanded their pricing for copies of births, marriages and death certificates--from 8 to 20 per certificate, or from about $13.50 to $25 U.S.! Unofficial copies of certificate prices have not thus far been addressed thus far.

Formerly, prices were  8 for certificates and 2 for searches! In mean, after all is said and done, paper itself is valued only so much. So just why the draconian price-increase can only be construed as price-gouging.

On a positive note, Irish researchers will be thrilled to learn that is starting a new webpage for Ireland, with free searches in their 21million name database, which is drawn from not only births, marriages and deaths (up to 1921 for Northern Ireland counties), but from newspaper notices, wills, and other record sources. Free searches commence on Thursday, January 24, 2013.
