This is on the go since last December but I hadn't heard anything about.

Kildare / Lysath, Lycett, Lyceth and so on
« on: Wednesday 07 March 18 15:44 GMT (UK)  »
If you are looking to kill some time with a bit of a challenging search read on
Iím just working on some side branches to my tree.
I came to this family via Bridget Donnelly; she is my great grandmotherís sister.
Bridget married Michael Lysath in Dublin in 1882
They live from then on in Ros(e)berry Kildare and there the problem starts as there is so many variations on the name.
1901 Census as Licied
1911 Census as Lyceth

Finding the children was fun as Bridget was dead before 1911 so I didnít have that handy children born/living, but I think I have them all.

Elizabeth Lycett 1882
Patrick Lycett transcribed as Lyceit
Catherine Lyceth 1886
Edward Lyceth 1889
William Lyceth 1891. Died 18 Jan 1898.
Julia Lyceth 1893

Mother Bridget Liced died 1893

I could leave it there but Iíd like to know if the children got married, moved away or if deaths could be found but Iím just head melted from all the variations in the name at the moment.
If anyone fancies having a look for any of them, Iíd be delighted.

Just to add to the confusion William, Michaelís brother I believe, lives in the same townland. Catherine, Michaelís daughter is staying with them in 1901.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Help with a name on ship manifest
« on: Sunday 04 March 18 23:20 GMT (UK)  »
Found one man I was looking for only to see he was with my next person of interest.
This if from Ellis Island records.
Denis Morrissey and James Donnelly on the Baltic on 29 June 1912.
Line 1 Denis and 2 James
The snip is who they are going to.
I can see James is going to his brother Thomas but who is Denis Morrissey going to?

Denis is a bit of a mystery he is with his aunt (my great grandmother) in 1901 and his uncle (Thomas' father) is his relation at home on the manifest but I haven't found his birth or a Morrissey/Donnelly marriage to see who his parents are.

Any idea on the name or the address so I can hopefully find it in the 1910 census would be great please.

Sounds great, fingers crossed it will be.

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 Rourkeís first child was born May 1871 making Jane either 3 months or 7 months pregnant when she married.
Patrick Gerrattyís 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.
