    Default Researching Mary Plunkett

    Good evening all,

    I am trying to find out about my maternal grandmother, who was born Mary Plunkett 11/08/1900 and registered as living at 10 Queens Square in Dublin.

    In particular, I would like to know from where, if still available, would be the best place to obtain an official copy of her birth certificate, which I believe I would need to progress an application for Irish citizenship.

    Many thanks in advance of any advice that can be provided.

    Re ordering the birth certificate it looks as if you should start at
    https://www2.hse.ie/services/births-...h-certificate/
    or
    https://www.gov.ie/en/service/124a70...tificates.aspx

    but this might give you extra details that would be helpful in the ordering.

    (Can't search it myself at the moment as the site appears to be down for maintenance.)

    To find her in the 1901 census with her parents and elder brother, go to
    https://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/search/
    and select 1901.

    Good evening Helachau,

    Many thanks for the greeting and confirmation of my Nan's birthday. She always celebrated her birthday on St Paddy's day, and was occasionally a little economic with the truth, but as she became my legal guardian when my mother died shortly before my third birthday, and as a widowed-grandparent went more than the extra mile to raise and care for me, I feel sure she is looking down from heaven with the satisfaction of knowing that she did her best by me.

    Best wishes,

Bookmarks
