GRONI's online search results

You need to buy credits before you search records. A search will show the number of matches which satisfy your search criteria. You have the option to view the first page of ten basic index results. When you view enhanced or full results you use credits.

You need a minimum of one credit in your account before you can search the records.

Basic search results

The basic index results will show you the following information for each civil registration type. Credits will not be deducted for viewing the basic results.

Please note that all search results (basic, enhanced, full) will be stored in the features facility for a period of 72 hours.
