Hello Muriel,

I hope you are keeping OK.

I phoned PRONI today and spoke to a member of the staff who told me her name was Patricia. She was very helpful with the two or three questions I asked ..
 
  Thankyou so much Christopher for going to the trouble of phoning PRONI and thanks for the link to History of Pensions.  I did follow this and spent a bit of time searching through it and even sent off a couple of emails.  I did recieve very friendly mail back suggesting I try GRONI for my grandfathers death cert.
  After rereading the site at GRONI I am wondering,  I know my grandfather was still living in 1953 as this was the year my father died and my mother had the police contact my grandfather in Belfast.  He did reply to my mother with a note that year.  My question is would GRONI do searches of the full years when I don't have a death date only a approx. by age I don't have a address either.  My grandfather would of been 75 in 1953, I have his date of b. date of m. grandmothers name, children born to them, his mother, father and stepfathers names
  Also thanks for asking Christopher I am trying like !!!! to keep well hope you are doing the same?  It would help if the weather here would start to warm up although I shouldn't complain this was the first year ever I remember a green x-mas.
