And get rid of the initial captcha and name entry on first search. Does anyone actually enter their own name? I think "a a" has done most of my searches. If they really wanted names they should make you have an account and sign in before being allowed to search.

Yes, it would have made far more sense to have people sign into an account rather than the half-hearted sign-up they provided instead.
Though by signing into your Gmail account you can at least avoid the dreaded Captcha.

How does the gmail help? I'm always signed into my gmail account but still have the captcha.

When I click the I Am Not A Robot bit while logged into Gmail it bypasses the Captcha altogether.

Interesting. I hadn't realised that was the reason why I no longer had to solve the Captcha. I've always been logged into Gmail while using the website since the civil records were available. In the early days I did need to always solve the Captcha but it hasn't been necessary for a long time. I thought that it may have been related to IP address or something like that but I tried searching on a different browser and it made me solve the Captcha so you seem to be right.

Have you located the correct image?

It's page 465 but they link to page 463.

Hi all,
Is anyone planning to visit the GRO research room on Werburgh Street today or next week?
I need to have a birth date in 1966 checked out for a friend. It won't require a photocopy as I'm sure the birth date is noted in the index pages.
I would really appreciate it if you'll be there. I can PM the details if you let me know.
Thanks

Is anyone having a problem with irishgenealogy.ie today. I can't get up the usual search page that allows you put in a name, reg district and year range?

There was an outage earlier this evening. It recovered. It is gone again.

This is the 3rd time in the last month that I've seen an outage (I never saw one before).

Yes, problems today and yesterday. Various people discussing on twitter. It extends to the NAI's genealogy websites too - all hosted on the same servers.
