« on: Friday 18 January 19 06:25 GMT (UK)  »
Family verbal history says Daniel Romeo O'Sullivan was born in Lorraine Franch. Records from NZ indicate his birth year was 1854. I have read their records are good but am struggling to find where to look as they are regional. Help please.

Australia / Owen Scahill Death recorded at Orange NSW
« on: Monday 11 June 18 12:45 BST (UK)  »
Owen Scahill was born 6th June 1884 at Carrandulla Galway. Parents Owen and Mary nee Hession. I can see his death in 1959 recorded at Orange NSW. Can others see any other information about Owen please. The only marriage I can see is for a Thomas Owen Scahill  in  1943 but as he had a brother Thomas Joseph here in NZ seems an unlikely due to name and date.

Armed Forces / James Gilligan 1777 to 1832 Looking for his Naval Record
« on: Sunday 03 June 18 13:13 BST (UK)  »
I did a post the other day on the General England board hoping to find his death at sea and was surprised to find James was born circa 1777. He is buried at Chatham Kent and married Mary Conor from Middlesex in 1814 on a Kent Isle. Baptisms for their children happened in Kent,  London and even Halifax Nova Scotia. In 1851 Mary is working at Rochester Kent for an elderly gentleman Captain George Belson  who lived from 1765-1855 and was in the Royal Marines.
What I am looking for is record of James naval career and a bonus would be to find mention of his birthplace or other genealogical info.

« on: Friday 01 June 18 11:51 BST (UK)  »
John Giligan was born at sea 24 Sept 1820 and baptised at Halifax Nth America. At archives he was enrolled at Greenwich Hospital School in 1830 and from family search he was in the English merchant navy. His father James died 1832 and he is not with his Mother Mary who died 1857 in census. Can anyone see him else where or flesh out the merchant navy angle please.
