Ireland-Genealogy: 30% Discount on all purchases
Ireland-Genealogy.com is a searchable database of ‘pension search forms’. These forms date back to the early 20th century, and are a by-product of people needing to prove their age so as to qualify for a pension under the 1908 Pension Act. After providing their personal details, applicants stated the address they believed they were living in as a child, and officials would then make a search of the 1841 or 1851 census returns (which still existed at this time) to see if they could identify the applicant and so confirm their age.
These forms often provide genealogical information that may not be available elsewhere. At present they are available online only at Ireland-Genealogy.com.
Each record normally costs £2 but IGRS members can take up a generous 30% discount when purchasing records from Ireland-Genealogy.com.
