Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Maiden name of mother? COMPLETED
« on: Friday 11 October 13 21:53 BST (UK)  »
This is from the Scottish death record of my Irish 3x ggrandmother, but I can't figure out her mother's maiden surname (after "M.S.").  Any suggestions?

Tipperary / What's this place in Tipperary?
« on: Tuesday 08 October 13 13:57 BST (UK)  »
My 2x great grandfather was born in Co Tipperary, but I can't decipher his birthplace given on his daughter's 1879 NZ birth certificate. (He married in 1859 in Galbally, Co Limerick.)  Hoping someone here might have an idea :)

Lancashire / RC sections of Philips Park Cemetery
« on: Thursday 12 September 13 10:05 BST (UK)  »
Just wondering if anyone knows what state the RC section F is in at Philips Park Cemetery in Manchester?

 My 2x great grandfather Thomas Gaffney was buried there in January 1872, but I've read that a flood the following summer carried a lot of bodies from the RC sections away.  Was section F affected?  And are the gravestones visible or are they mostly below ground level now?  His grave number is F 459 - how likely is it that I will be able to find it?

Many thanks for any help
