Hi I'm looking for any information on John Murtagh who would of been my great grandfather, he is listed in the 1911 Dublin census along with his wife Mary born 1879 in Co. Kildare, and his two daughters Kathleen (my grandmother) 1908 and Mary Bridget 1910/11 both born in Dublin.

Hi

Can you clarify exactly what type of information you are looking for?

Have you looked for him on the 1901 Irish census?

Did you get Kathleen's marriage cert?
Earlier thread http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=740601.0

I can see a birth for a Kathleen Murtagh in 1908 http://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/details-civil/547d670635429
Mother Byrne but I can't find a match for Mary or a marriage of John Murtagh to a Mary Byrne.

Looking at the Census image again I think Mary Bridget could be 11 months not 4 in which case I can find a birth and a marriage but can't find a Kathleen/Catherine
So maddening.

Hi. I'm looking for any family of John's the only things I know are he was born in 1880 in Westmeath, I know this from the 1911 Dublin census.  I'm not sure how I find info on him and his birth family, and his wife who was born in Co. Kildare in 1879/80. I know Kathleen was born 1908 married John Watters in 1934 and died in 1945 as John died in 1942 their children (which included my mum) where sent to a ophanage.  I don't know any more, just have a urge to find out about him and his wife.
Thank you both for your help

That's the one I was thinking of but why isn't Kathleen showing up?
Wonder could they have moved abroad for a few years, pity there is no place of birth for the two girls on the Census.

Kathleen and Mary were born in Dublin as far as I know, John and Mary were married in Dublin I know Kathleen/Catherine married John Watters in April 1934 as I have a picture of their marriage cert don't know about Mary. I'm more interested in John, Mary and Mary Bridget, thank you for your help I'm useless at this.
