Glenn, it would also be worth putting the names into the Search Trees box above as 2 other members on this site have an Orlando in their tree. You can contact the tree owners for further information. Cx

There used to be a dance hall on the front at Bangor, Co Down, called Capronis. I think it closed in the 1970/80s.

My husband (who was lived in Bangor) says that the Capronis in Bangor also sold ice cream. There is this family in the 1901 census in Stranraer, Scotland:

1901 Scotland Census
about Teresiana Caprone
Name: Teresiana Caprone
Age: 19
Estimated birth year: abt 1882
Relationship: Head
Gender: Female
Where born: Italian
Registration Number: 899
Registration district: Stranraer
Civil Parish: Stranraer
County: Wigtownshire
Address: 70 George St
Occupation: Ice Cream Venders Wife
ED: 7
Household schedule number: 26
Line: 7
Roll: CSSCT1901_444
Household Members: Name Age
Teresiana Caprone 19
Ernienia Luchie 21 b Italy, sister
Isolina Caproni 13 b Italy, step-daughter
Lillias M Caproni 1 daughter, b Stranraer
Helena M R Caproni 6mo daughter, b Stranraer

Stranraer is the main port for ferries between Scotland and Northern Ireland.

I wonder if Helena could be the Nelly on the 1911 irish census?

There are only two births in 1899 and 1900 in Scotland for Caproni and they are for the two girls in the census.

On the 1911 one of the daughter's born Scotland is Mabel, aged 6. Scotlandspeople has a birth for a Mabel Caproni, b Stranraer in 1905.

Mabel's birth cert will give you her parents' names and when and where they married. You can download the cert from this site:

http://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/

Edit: I see Maura got there before me! and very kindly looked up Mabel's birth for you.

The GRO(I) index thru 1958 (excl N. Ireland post-partition) is available at:
https://www.familysearch.org/s/collection/list#page=1®ion=EUROPE

One can purchase certs (or cheaper still, the uncertified images of the rego) via:
http://www.groireland.ie/

The Irish 1901/1911 censuses are free at:
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/search/

I don't think there's any post-partition GRONI index online.
