GRONI fees changes confirmed in Northern Ireland

The fees charged by the General Register Office for Northern Ireland ( are set to change from April 4th, with some good news and some bad. The good news is that the cost of certificates will remain unchanged, and the search room fee of £7 is set to be removed for use of GRONI's facility in Belfast. The bad news is that the cost of online historic certificate images, as hosted on the GENI platform at is set to rise - credits will increase from 40p to 50p, meaning that a historic certificate image will rise to £2.50 from £2.

For full details on the changes - and how to save a bit of money on GENI by buying credits up quickly! - please visit the North of Ireland Family History Society's Facebook post at
