    In my experience, many/most births to British army personnel serving in Ireland after 1.1.1864 were registered in the local civil records. It certainly sounds as though this one was. Whether such...

    Statutory birth registration only started in Ireland in 1864 so you won’t get a birth certificate for Catherine. The best you may get is her baptism.

    If her maiden name was O’Hanlon then I’d say...

    If you are ordering from GRO Roscommon, be sure to order a photocopy at €4, not a formal cert at €20. All you are paying for there is posh paper.

    Gerald,

    Statutory recording of births only started in Ireland in 1864 and so if Andrew was born before 1864 you won’t find a birth cert for him. In addition, in the early years of statutory...
