The 1855 marriage of Robert Wright to Margaret Leslie will not be found on GRONI's website (as was suggested earlier) as they only hold certificates from Northern Ireland counties. However, extract is, and has been available for years, on Family Search-

Yeah, I've seen the thread on Ancestry and I've commented on it but so far no reply. That's why I thought I'd try on here in case there's something new. Is there no other way to investigate the Church of Ireland records?

Hi Lisa,

Has the information posted thus far helped you at all?

Hi All,

Sorry I didn't reply asap.

Your help has been tremendous as I've managed to uncover some family members. If it wasn't for your advice and a gentle nudge of direction, I would have been stuck.

It's a shame that Irish ancestry can be difficult as there is so much history in Ireland and it would have been amazing for everyone to find out what part their ancestors played in Irish's history.

Thank you again.
