If you require a certificate for any legal purpose, you will need an authenticated, long form certificate. For example, for obtaining Irish Citizenship, you must prove that you have an Irish born grandparent. To do this, you will obviously need a birth certificate for this grandparent. However, a standard birth certificate of this ancestor will not suffice, it will have to be the aforementioned authenticated, long form version.
If you are not familiar with it, the process of obtaining such a certificate can be quite cumbersome. We at Genealogy.ie know the process inside out and offer to obtain the authenticated certificate for you.

Authenticated birth certificates are not cheap. So, before you order one, be sure you have identified the correct person. If you are not sure, you should use our Irish family history search and investigation service to get us to check.
