Changes coming soon to RootsIreland

This is an amended post from an earlier announcement.

There are some major changes coming soon to RootsIreland (, the online portal of the Irish Family History Foundation, with the addition of a new ScotlandsPeople like functionality. The site will soon be adding a new payment gateway, whereby you do an initial search, pay to see a page of indexed results and then pay to see the full detail of records of interest - as ScotlandsPeople does. There will be no images to view however, purely transcriptions.

Bear in mind RootsIreland is not just the BMD site - you'll find many census results there, including pre-1901 census fragments that have survived, and all sorts, so do check the source listing for every county page that you visit (via link on left of page). You may be surprised at what else is there!
