  • CIGO 2010 Award
    in the street soon began to feel that what had been their hobby which they had given many hours of unpaid time to in a voluntary capacity was being gobbled up And all this I might add was before the advent of the Internet The spark which begat CIGO happened in 1992 when the government announced that the General Register Office was to be decentralised to Roscommon town Immediately a group was formed representing the various organisations societies and bodies working in the field of Irish genealogy It took the name GRO Users Group and amusingly quickly became known as the GROUSERS Speaking with one voice it insisted that if the move was indeed to go ahead then the current statute provision of a Public Search Room must be retained in Dublin After much lobbying common sense prevailed this was out first victory The GRO USERS soon realised that it had a future and adopted a constitution and a new name that of CIGO Since then CIGO has grown to represent thirteen constituent organisations within Ireland and a further eighteen societies and organisations interested in Irish genealogy from across the globe For almost twenty years now we have lobbied Ministers government departments semi state bodies cultural institutions and private organisations across this island to improve access to genealogical material and records Over the years CIGO has become involved in every single issue that has proved to be of importance to the world of Irish genealogy family history and archives For instance its success in securing vital amendments to the Civil Registration Act 2004 during its Oireachtas Bill stages ensured that since December 2005 all death registrations must note where known the deceased s date and place of birth and parents names This achievement was copper fastened when despite initial opposition from the General Register Office for Northern Ireland CIGO appeared before the Northern Ireland Assembly s Finance Personnel Scrutiny committee and successfully argued that such provisions should be adopted in Northern Ireland too In 2009 we successfully challenged the UK s National Health Service Information Centre s policy of denying access to data about deceased people from the war time National Register compiled in 1939 and which notes census style information about every UK resident The outcome has been that access to such data can now be obtained from each constituent part of the UK from England Wales from Scotland and from Northern Ireland too We have followed this success by making enquiries as to the location and state of the Republic s Population Registers compiled during the Emergency period Also in recent weeks we have held discussions with opposition parties about a compromise that might unlock the roots tourism potential locked away in the Irish 1926 census returns a compromise which might allow early access to these records possibly through the redaction of so called sensitive data At this stage all we can say is that we have found great enthusiasm for the proposal and a commitment to examine
