Thank you for these great links Teresa - I've finally found the reason why I started all this, I've found details of the ancestors who brought my family from Ireland to England. Can you help me in how to get a copy of the certificate?

Hi Helen

It depends on what approx dates you are looking for and whether it's Northern Ireland or Southern Ireland.

Have a look at the 2 websites below and it will give you details of when RC and non RC records began and how to order For Northern Ireland BDM’s For Southern Ireland (Eire)
for Southern Ireland's New website below to order the certificates on line. is a Free website with thousands of Baptism and Marriages records but NOT all of Ireland is covered.
Just go to Search Records and enter a name and it will come up with the Church records in the different areas that are on line at the moment.

'County Dublin Towns and Registration Districts'

and found a list which you can copy, save and print.

Helps to know which part of Dublin County a Town's Registration District is in.

Haven't googled other Counties though!

It is so very difficult to find details of my Grandmother, BRIDGET DOWLING. She was born in Dublin during the late and married William SYME from Clackmannanshire, Scotland. Grandad Syme was a member of the British Army and my Father James St James Syme was boprn in 1924 at Tralee.
If you can help me in any way to trace any relations I may have in Dublin, then I would be GREATLY obliged to you.

John, please look in for her baptism:
it does not give her exact date of birth nor baptism but does give the names of her parents:

Her marriage certificate will give further details of use to you.

I have come to the dreaded BRICK WALL!
Patrick LANNAN (c1770) married to Catherine Maher(c1775) R Catholic.
I have their son Martin c 1790 and a possible brother Michael b.1799 (Wexford)....are there any more siblings ? and Patrick/Catherines parents.?

Martin Lannan married Anastasia Griffen, lived in Swiftsheath Kilkenny.
Son Patrick married Bridget Farrell, I have most of their children and details of migration to Australia. Again I am looking for Patrick's siblings and also Bridget's siblings and G parents(Father Martin Farrell/Mother Anastasia ?Breen) also lived in Swiftsheath Kilk. Anastasia Breen may have been born in Carlow, however I am not 100% sure of her surname.

I have been told that LANNAN is derived from LEONARD but I am not sure about that at all.

It has been very difficult trying to find John Fury and Mary Ann Haley. These are very common names and there are many of them. I have tried some of the web sites with no luck. Thank you for all your hard work. All I have is approximate bds for both. It doesn't help that John changed the spelling after coming here because the nuns told him to. They both moved several times and seemed to always miss the different state census periods. After joing genes last week it has been amazing the amount of knowledge the members have and SHARE. Judy

Having difficulty trying to find any information on my great-grandfather, James Fullarton, born about 1821 in Derry. I know he was in England by 1851 and married my great-grandmother in 1853 but I'm trying to learn more about his Irish background.

His mother was Agnes (maiden name unknown), born in Derry about 1790 and his father was, I believe, John Fullarton.
