you usually need a location (parish, town, or townland) to start a search for record before the start of civil registration - ideally the denomination also.  'Cork' can refer to the city or the county, which is the largest in Ireland and has large number of different parishes.

see : Shumacker Johnson Wedding 1844 Cork

Remember to check the Resource boards :  Ireland, Dublin, Antrim & Cork (and stickies at the top of other county sub-forums)

Have you following the advice given in the previous topic? "There's good info on this site under 'Irish Resources'.
Lots there and new links being added all the time. This one in particular might be where you might find information-
http://www.rootsireland.ie/ifhf/map.php

There's also a CORK RESOURCES section at the top of this board. In general you need to know the family's religion and where they lived (parish if not actual townland) but in this case with an unusual, un-Irish surname you might be lucky (although spelling of it could be a problem).

Added- see that Shane has posted a link to another topic for the same marriage and already had given you links to the 2 topics for tracing Irish ancestors.

Thank you both. What with the Irish and German connections this family keeps things interesting.

Still stuck but that is part of the fun.

I think the occupation might give a clue... at least if he was a sugar boiler when he was in Ireland.

Might be worth checking Slater's 1846 for sugar manufacturers & processors, and also the various Cork city and county directories (There's a link in Cork Resources).

Thank you. I've already looked at a sugar boilers website but not this trade directory. Will follow this up.

Thanks for this...I will follow it up.

Re the reposting of the question...I should probably have placed it in chat as I was looking for somewhere to share my frustration and wondering if anyone could inspire me.

Thanks for your replies.

Church of Ireland Cork 1844
« Reply #17 on: Sunday 24 January 16 11:05 GMT (UK) »
Can someone enlighten me. Posted many times on my search for Shumacker and Catherine Johnson married in Cork in 1884. Grateful for all the help previously given.

I would link to previous answers if I was clever enough  ;D

Don't want anyone to spend time searching for things that have already been answered in previous posts.

This question is specifically about the Church of Ireland. I have reason to believe they might have been married in 1844 in the Church of Ireland. Their daughter was married in Glasgow in the Episcopal Church, something that might indicate previous connection with Church of Ireland.

How does Church of Ireland in 1844 differ from other church records. Does this make searching easier or harder. I don't know where in Cork they were married
