« on: Sunday 03 June 18 05:50 BST (UK) »
Hi All

Searching for any info on John Arthurs born 1826 ?? where married Alice Mc Shane Dungannon  no fathers listed on marriage cert :( really would love to know where John hailed from.

The family moved to Belfast which I have the info for but cannot trace John born in 1826 and Alice not sure born in 1836??? as on the census 1901 she is listed living with her son and she is 65 years old

Thanks in advance

You haven't said when and where the marriage took place  :-\ Is it a church record you have? or civil record?

A son Joseph born 1872 Belfast-

Thanks, gaffy, no civil record then. Since marriages usually take place in the bride's church and it's possible John was also from the same area then the next step would be to check baptisms-

Thank you Gaffy and Aghadowey, I have a record of the marriage but cannot seem to find a record of birth for John anywhere.

Thank you both once again I appreciate your assistance.

You possibly need to check a wider range for his birth year and adjoining parishes (if their records cover the right period).
