What can I do with my Subscription?
Once you have purchased your subscription you can search the index and view the available details of the records. You may use www.rootsireland.ie and its contents for your own personal, non-commercial use, i.e. to research your own family history. You cannot provide third parties with details of any of the records that you have paid to view even if you provide them for free. Reasonable monthly limits have been set for users to allow them to access the index search and to view the details of any records that relate to their family history.
We have a fair usage limit for subscribers, but we deliberately set it very high (400 views in 1 day subscription (24 hours), 1,000 views of records in 1 month; 7,000 views in 6 months; 15,000 views in 12 months. If you do manage to reach the limit of 1,000 views of individual records, you will need to wait until the end of the first 30 day subscription period to renew your subscription.
6/12 months – Your monthly views limit will be reset automatically at the start of the next 30 day period of your subscription.
For the duration of your subscription only you can save up to a maximum 100 records for further viewing in your online account. You can delete records or add records to this list as long as it does not exceed 100 records at any time. However, you need to print out or save to your own computer any records that you wish to view after your subscription is finished.
Cannot access your Subscription account?
If you have just purchased a subscription and cannot access the index and records, please log out of your account and then log in again. If you still have difficulties please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
I had a Pay per View account? What do I do?
If you purchased credits to view records under the previous Pay Per View any records that you have paid to view in the previous 24 months will still be available to you to view. These records will be deleted from your account 24 months from the date that you purchased them using the Pay Per View service as per the terms and conditions that were in effect when you purchased the credits.
