    In general a baptism is/was supposed to take place in front of the congregation so that the event could be seen publicly. However there were cases, often involving a child that was very ill, where it...

    That's unlikely if he was Catholic. Normal practice with Catholic baptisms was/is to baptise the child as soon as possible, normally within a day or two of the birth. It was feared that an unbaptised...

    Harkin(s) is a common surname in Cos. Donegal, Derry & Tyrone and many people from that area went to work in Scotland in the 1800s. In fact they still do. McLaughlin (and variant spellings) is also a...

    With a death registration a lot of the information is taken on trust. The Registrar doesn’t make exhaustive enquiries to verify every aspect. Today they like it if you can produce the deceased’s...

    Deb,

    The 1861 marriage certificate tells you that Thomas Murphy was living in Islandmore townland (Ballywillin). He was a labourer, as was his father. His bride was also from Islandmore and her...

    Suzanne,

    Not sure what further advice to offer regarding records. The problem is that there aren’t any. A good read is Godfrey Watson’s book “The Border Reivers” (pub 1974).

    In that you will...

    In my experience, gravestones were often put up some years after the burial and I have seen many mistakes over ages and other information on them. You get mistakes on death certificates too and it’s...

    I see a marriage for a Thomas John Conkey to Margaret McLaughlin in Kilkeel on 12.2.1914. I suspect that might be your Thomas’s parents:

    Eakin(s)/Aiken(s) and variants are common surnames in what is now Northern Ireland. Mostly descendants of Scots who settled there in the 1600s. However 1832 is long before the start of birth...

    I think this is probably Rose Feeney’s death on 15.6.1901 aged 96 at Stonepark, Dromahaire. (The age was just the informant’s best guess and for someone of that age, could be out by 10 years). The...

    I looked for a River Row in Glenarm but don't see one of those in that area today either. Re the 1911 census, part of Belfast is in Co Down so there's a couple more Annies there too.

    Glenarm is about 40 miles north of Belfast. I had a look at the 1911 Irish census for Deerpark, Glenarm. The road name River Road didn’t exist in 1911 (street names and house numbers arrived after...

    The issue was perhaps more to do with the fact that your parents weren’t married, rather than that the father’s name wasn’t on the birth certificate. It was the same in the UK until 1983. You could...

    Janey,

    Blaris is the parish around the modern city of Lisburn. The main Presbyterian church there, certainly pre 1850, is 1st Lisburn. Their records start in 1688. So might be worth searching...

    You haven’t answered the all important question Lesley asked about the family’s denomination. Do you know what they were? It’s really important because you are looking for records before...
