« on: Thursday 29 October 20 14:22 GMT (UK)  »
The section for Irishtown  Clonmel seems to be missing from the 1901 census is there someone I can contact to see if it is missing or just not on line yet ? Also is there a way to get access to documents held in National Archive. I see documents on there that are related to family members but am not getting any response from them on how I could access them

On a birth cert for his daughter in 1934 William's address is Kilbrogan Hill Bandon and his profession is sergeant civic guard. Is there anywhere I can look for more details of his time as a guard ?

Waterford / Beresford and Kirwan Dungarvan and Kilrossanty
« on: Sunday 30 October 16 20:07 GMT (UK)  »
My great great grandmother was Alice Beresford who married Pierce Kirwan from Kilrossanty. Her brother Nicholas married Johanna, Pierce's sister. On Johanna's grave dated 1876, it says it was erected by her husband Nicholas of Castlequarter Dungarvan. I can't find any record of Alice's or Nicholas' marriage certs or their birth certs. Any one know this family ? Paul

Waterford / Hufsham or Hussum Abbeyside Dungarvan
« on: Sunday 30 October 16 20:00 GMT (UK)  »
Hi reached a road block on my great great grandparents. Patrick Whelan and Anastasia Hufsham married in Abbeyside in 1846. Patrick was from a seafaring family as was Anastasia. They had 4 children, Katherine, Mary, Bridget and Patrick. They were grandparents of Captain Tom Donoghue of Kerlogue fame, my grandmothers older brother. I can't find any details of Patrick and Anastasia's family but I think Anastasia's father may have been Dutch and called Moses. Anyone else come across these names ? Paul

Galway / Born in Galway Workhouse
« on: Monday 17 November 14 19:30 GMT (UK)  »
Hi I just found out that my grandparents eldest child was born in the Galway City Workhouse in 1915. My grandfather is down as living in St Brendan's Terrace. Would this be normal to be born in the workhouse instead of at home ? Was the workhouse used as a hospital ? They had only just moved to Galway from Tipperary does anyone know what the area of St Brendan's Terrace would have been like at that time

« on: Sunday 28 September 14 16:45 BST (UK)  »

I found out that one of my great great grandfathers - Francis Drohan -  died in the workhouse in Kilmacthomas in 1882. Is there somewhere I could find more details about why he entered and how long he was there and if he entered on his own or with family
