I have mentioned twice about the tree on this site

Please go to the search trees dark green bar top of screen

Put in her name Bridget mcloughlin plus birth year

send a message to the other person with this name by clicking on find out more and you will then see she has the name of O'neil

She may no longer be a member but it is worth a try

H,

it sound like you have the short version of the cert, this cert you have is it in your birth name or you new adopted name ?
if you have the full version of you orig cert, then you can try to marry some of the details up with the poss marriage, for instance the middle name is this Bernadette ? , in some cases the address given by the BM as her home address will match the home address on the marriage cert, occupation if she has given that on the BC then this may ls also match the marriage , and her age then you know what age she was when she had you, do the figures match up ?
This info is really important when your dealing with a common name or when you cannot find a birth for a BM in that area, it was not unusual for a BM to have been working away from the are she was born in and fell pregnant, or for pregnant young girl to be sent away to stay with another family member or a Mother and baby home in order to avoid any scandal so births and marriages are not always in the same area.
It may well be that she was born in Ireland came here and either worked here for a while, or gave birth and then returned home to Ireland after your birth.

The address is there but you have to pay to view, but 5 years later she may not be there now anyway.

Did you manage to send a message to the person with the tree?

mcloughlin

mcloughlin Report 3 Mar 2012 15:23

it was me that put her tree up not her, not realising what i was doing, my name was the same as hers at my birth, her name is Bridget Bernadette mcloughlin( oneil) i think now, my name is now sharan roberts, which is the name on my BC, i know she lived with her sister in Birmingham years ago, when i looked on 192.com, there was no result, dont understand how you saw it :-( thanks anyway

jax

jax Report 3 Mar 2012 15:35

So your name is Bridget O'neil then?

Have looked at all for this person in the trees on this site by following the instructions I gave you?

mcloughlin

mcloughlin Report 3 Mar 2012 16:35

no its sharan roberts now my birth mother was bridget mcloughlin and i think its now bridget oneil,

Sheila Report 3 Mar 2012 16:37

I really think it may be worth ordering the marriage cert to see if we can rule this marriage out , do you know her sisters name ?

mcloughlin

mcloughlin Report 3 Mar 2012 16:49

the tree with her name is what i put up when i started looking so the message i sent came back to me :-S

jax

jax Report 3 Mar 2012 16:51

Well if you do not want to send her a message its up to you...I cannot explain any clearer

Try to put her name in again and see what you get, I would have thought you would have noticed if you were sending a message to yourself, by the name of the person you were sending it to?

As shelia says purchase the marriage cert, but that is only going to confirm it is the person on here plus the person I found on 192.com, but it will give her age so if that is out by 10 years you know it is not her
