Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Re: Kinnegad Catholic Parish Register in Ireland

 Dont give up just yet. Wait for some Irish expert to add a comment. One of my Irish born  Catholic relatives appears as Elizabeth, Betty, Bridget  ( aka Biddy ) and Bridie in various Scottish  census documents from 1841-1901.!  Regards orkrad

 Thanks Debra. I can now see where they got the strange name from. Getting Ancestry to change it may prove a little more difficult than I thought . Regards Orkrad

 Thanks Minniehaha, Alan and Lucy2. Jessie was married to Charles le Neve Arnold who was responsible for designing quite a few large Auckland buildings including Auckland Grammar School. I wanted to find out a little about Jessie(including her cemetery records ) in order to correct a mis spelling of her name in the 1861 census for London, England. There she is named Shanoah (? )  the baby daughter of Alfred William Smith . The family came to New Zealand in 1862/63. I dont have a copy of the 1861  London census to check the written physical record but she was Jessie Spencer Smith  and I am hoping that by providing a few details such as her marriage and death details some correction can be made.  Thanks everyone for your help.

New Zealand / jessie spencer smith arnold (1860-1920)

 I am trying to find where this relative is buried. She was born in London in 1860. The family emigrated to New Zealand. Her maiden name was Jessie Spencer Smith . She married the architect Charles le Neve Arnold in Dunedin on 6 Dec 1882. She moved to Auckland where three sons were born.
I have tried the Auckland Cemeteries database without success. Also thought she might have been buried in Dunedin where most of her birth  family are  interred but again no results.  Any help finding Jessie would be realy appreciated . Thanks  Orkrad.

 Thanks once again to all you helpful Rootschatters.Since I live in New Zealand there is zero chance of me getting back to Scotland anytime soon to check out the sources you suggest.!( We are now in lockdown #2).Does  anyone know if the Glasgow Herald Archives are available on line so that I might be able to  try to find some family members.?  Regards Orkrad
