1936 would still be someone from the Smythe family, probably one of the daughters.

I am trying to locate where Shedogue is, I believe it is near the village of Ballylinan, but can anyone be more precise?

The Lighter Side / Re: WDYTYA Live - End of an era.

I have been to the show once in London and three times in Birmingham, the NEC was the better venue. The most popular aspects of the show was the talks and the ability to talk with other like minded people. Perhaps the numbers that fitted into the theatres were not big enough to attract more people. Also the vision of the screens could have been better. The military section allowed me trace exactly where my father was shot in Burma in WW2. It is surprising that the show has been running at a loss perhaps the sponsors could have done more to support the costs. I think there is still a family history show in Dublin in October at the RDS, similar style talks go on there.

My grandfather Michael Nolan was married on the 12 Jan 1890 to Mary Ann Toole in Dalkey from the marriage certificate I can see his fathers name is also Michael Nolan and one of the witnesses was a John Nolan.
It was not until I saw the parish record of the event that I found that this showed both parents for Michael being Michael Nolan and Mary Robinson and they lived in the Lucan area of Dublin. The address for John Nolan was also given as Eskey, Lucan.
I then searched the 1901 and 1911 census and found a Mary Nolan (widow) living with two daughters Mary and Catherine.
I also found John with his wife and family on the 1901 census and have obtained their marriage certificate from which I have found his parents to be Patrick Nolan and Rose Caulfield. From the age shown on the census is John a brother to Michael or a cousin?
I have not been able to find a marriage for Michael Nolan and a Mary Robinson but I have found a marriage to an Anne Robinson on the 19 April 1856 in Arles, Killabin, is this the same person?
I have found 7 baptism records for Michael Nolan and Anne Robinson but is this the same family? Children from baptism records being James (b1858), John (b1862), Michael (b1865), Christy (b1868), Mary (b1870), unknown male (b1864), William (b1873).
Michael Nolan was baptised on the 1 September 1865, parish shown as Arles, I have also found the Civil Birth record showing he was born 26 August 1865 parish shown as Ballylinan.
A William Nolan married a Kate Robinson on the 25 August 1859 in Arles Killabin, is this the same family? This would make William an uncle to my Michael.
The 1911 census shows Mary as a widow but she states she was married for 32 years and had 7 children.
If anyone recognises any of this to confirm it is the same family I would appreciate any feedback.

Hi Tara

Yes I have seen that site but nothing appears to cover the years I am interested in, unless I have missed something.


Dublin / Dublin United Transport Company - DUTC

My grandfather Michael Nolan from the years 1890 to 1901 had an occupation shown on various marriage, birth, census and death records as Coachman and Tram Driver mainly in the Dalkey area. By 1901 his occupation (on a birth certificate of one of his sons) was shown as Historian DUTC. Does anyone know of any information relating to what a Historian DTUC would have done and is there any records, books that will give any further information?
