  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: Northern Ireland - BDMs

    Some on-line sites contain what is described as the indexes to births, deaths & marriages in Ireland 1845 to 1958. In my opinion, not all are sufficiently clear that whilst these records contain the indexes for the Republic of Ireland until 1958, they don't include the 6 counties of what is now...

  1. Birth and Baptism

    I've been trawling through the records of The Irish Family History Foundation for 7 children - born from 1879 to 1890. The birth records often also quote a baptism date a few days or weeks after the birth but there is often a later (by several years) baptism record. It seems that the first...

  3. A Birth in 1856

    I'm trying to find the birth of Catherine O'Hanlon in about 1856. All I know, from her 1878 marriage to Edward Hume, is that her father was John O'Hanlon, a soldier.

  10. Sticky: Research in Ireland

    The information on the Ancestry site describes the collection as deaths in Ireland from 1864 to 1958. However it is misleading. It does not include deaths in Northern Ireland from 1.1.1922 onwards. This is a topic that comes up time and time again and causes a lot of confusion. In my opinion they...

    I am looking for the birth details of a William Watters (Waters). On the England census of 1911 he says his birthplace is "Ard's Tyrone Ireland". I can find an Ards in County Down and an Ard Bo or Ardboe in County Tyrone - which I think is correct. I know nothing about Ireland. Which is...
