Dublin / Conners Eliza - Australian family mystery any pointers appreciated
« on: Wednesday 08 November 17 05:59 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, I normally don't research my history outside of Australia but I am having trouble placing a 4th ggmother and her daughter, my 3rd ggmother.

Eliza Conners - married William Baker in 1844 in Bathurst, Australia 
on her death cert in 1876 (aged 68) has that her father was William Conners of Dublin - stone cutter and mother Margaret. Also she had been in the colony for 44 years so arrived about 1832. Born abt 1808.

Her daughter Mary Anne Conners and sister Jane, I assume, were born out of wedlock and possibly under another name as I can not find births or immigration records for them or their mother Eliza.

Mary Anne is listed as both Conners and Baker alternatively throughout her life supporting the fact that she was a step child.

Any pointers on researching family history in Dublin or Ireland in general would be most helpful.

Many thanks
