Ireland / Browse Tool for BMD images on Irish Genealogy
« on: Wednesday 03 January 18 22:34 GMT (UK)  »
I'd forgotten about this, it's a tool that lets you move page by page through the images on Irish Genealogy. Very handy for finding images when the incorrect link has been given.
There is one for the Census as well.

Kildare / Civil Reg versus Caragh Parish Register. Total mess.
« on: Thursday 16 November 17 11:08 GMT (UK)  »
The Caragh Parish Register of marriages on NLI is a transcript made in 1933 from the old parish register.
see note on page linked
It appears the RootsIreland transcript is taken from the same 1933 transcript. (Thanks to MyLuck).

My great grandparents married in Caragh, when the Civil Registration images became available on Irish Genealogy I looked for their marriage cert and got a surprise, the dates didn't match and theirs isn't the only one.
The first date on the list below is the Civil Registration date the second is the Parish Register date
Michael Culleton & Bridget Kelly 26 Oct 1870 and 8 Jan 1871
William Rourke & Jane Donnelly 2 Nov 1870 and 6 March 1871
Michael McEvoy & Anne Hourigan 11 Oct 1870 and 19 March 1871
Henry/John Toole & Ann Heavy 8 Nov 1870 and 16 July 1871
Martin Heavy & Mary Fullam 8 Nov 1870 and 24 July 1871
John Connelly & Ellen Dunne 15 Nov 1870 and 28 July 1871
Patrick Geratty & Eliza Murray 18 Feb 1870 and 3 Oct 1871
Thomas Kelly & Esther Morrissy/Murphy 25 April 1870 and 18 Oct 1871 (pity the person looking for her maiden name)

There is more but I just got tired flicking back and forth and making a note of them.
All the pages of the Civil Registration with these marriages are signed and dated by the registrar with a date earlier that the parish register gives for the marriages.

William Rourke’s first child was born May 1871 making Jane either 3 months or 7 months pregnant when she married.
Patrick Gerratty’s first child was born Jan 1871 making Eliza either not or only just pregnant getting married or an unmarried mother.

I hope to contact the parish and hopefully find out if the 1933 transcript is a mess or the register is so badly damaged the difference in dates is understandable or the transcript does in fact match the dates given in the register.
What ever the answer I say the Civil Registration wins the battle. :)

Ireland / Irish Genealogy UPDATE (in progress)
« on: Monday 13 November 17 22:39 GMT (UK)  »
So excited I haven't even read all the post yet

The 1916 births are there.
Seems to be large chunks of the death index before 1891 missing, this I assume is a good sign but a bit more waiting to do.
Marriage images seem to be back to 1868

Mixed results depending on the area, updates don't seem to be across the entire country yet.

Free Photo Restoration & Date Old Photographs / Is this too spotty to colour?
« on: Tuesday 10 October 17 15:05 BST (UK)  »
Advice needed please.
This girl will be 90 next year and I was thinking a coloured print of this photo would make a nice present but the original is on matte paper so scans with lots of white spots, is it too spotty to colour?
I can clean it up myself and post again if it is too spotty but thought it was best to ask first, I haven't a clue how to colour photos so don't know if the spots need to be got rid of first or will be covered by the process.

The Lighter Side / How would you feel about touching a long dead ancestor...

As in holding his arm....
sure would make an interesting story in any family tree.

Ireland / Mother's surname doesn't match.
« on: Sunday 06 August 17 01:37 BST (UK)  »
I was looking for something quite different when I came across this and thought how easily we can be sent astray
James Lowrey baptised 16 June 1872 mother Anne Pendergast
last one on the page
James Lowrey birth 10 June 1872 mother Anne Pender

I haven't tried it yet, but it appears FamilySearch has made some improvements to some of the Civil Registration index.

Ireland / Little bit of good news re 1901 and 1911 Census
« on: Tuesday 20 June 17 20:35 BST (UK)  »
Just read on Clare Santry's Irish Genealogy News that the National Archives are looking for tenders to do the corrections on the 1901 and 1911 Census.
That will be good when it happens, so be sure to report any you spot.
