The Common Room / School admission books
« on: Tuesday 30 March 21 11:09 BST (UK)  »
Good Morning all, just wondering if anyone might point me in the right direction, or if any of you have ever come across records belonging to Mount St Josephs School Clondalkin Dublin on your travels? I don't seem to be able to find anything for them anywhere online I'v checked the National Archives website but cant find anything there either so suggestions where else to look would be greatly appreciated, apparently it was a "poor school" and then became a private one before its demise thanks all

Dublin / Taidquest connecting with Kavanagh Family
« on: Tuesday 11 August 20 10:28 BST (UK)  »
Good morning everyone hope you are all keeping safe and well. My Sister Anne known on these boards as Taidquest who sadly died in 2012 had connected during the time of her illness with our Kavanagh family in Dublin , I met some of them at her service and at the time being upset did not think to take their details. I know one of them lived on the south coast in Dublin, if you are reading this please get in touch on private message with me as I would like to continue the search for her, thanks All

The Common Room / Sailor Ahoy

HI All looking for some suggestions from your brilliant heads! My Great granddad  one William Owens said on his marriage cert he was a sailor in 1870 in Dublin. I am guessing he was in the merchant service. I have gone off to the archives available and had a look for any clues to who he was and where he was born but there are so many with the same name in the period he would have been serving ! anyone got any other suggestions for me where to look for him, his age just says full on his cert so 21 or over in 1870 the rumour in our family was the family were from Wales but I have never been able to prove that he stayed in Dublin after leaving the service and my granddad was born in Dublin I found the fAMILY on the 1901 but I think I'm not meant to find anything bout him as he didnt write on the census where any of them were born including himself! thank s

The Common Room / Uk Civil Marriage early 1900's

Hi All hope you are keeping safe and well out there. Looking for a bit of advice could someone tell me what information I might glean from ordering a full cert for a marriage in 1907? I have a short copy cert from many years ago it gives the parents names but no more information about them at all would there be more if I ordered a full one? I am stuck on this man for many many years and would love to make a bit of progress with him. thanks all
