Oxfordshire / Free access to Ancestry from home for library card members
« on: Thursday 04 June 20 17:11 BST (UK)  »
There is currently free access to Ancestry for Oxfordshire library card members from home. If you are not an Oxfordshire member then you can still apply for a library card to access the same and they will send you details of your library card and pin number which yiou can then use to access the site. This will only be temporary whilst the libraries are closed so make the most of it ;D

Yes thank you Maiden Stone. I am aware of the division in 1921 but as I don't know when her ancestors came over here  ( before/ after 1921) I thought I had better cover all bases ;)

Thank you Hallmark for that link too :)

I reckon I will probably be back here with more questions once I get going :)

Thank you all for that very useful information.

At the moment I am waiting for my friend to get her information together but she told me she didn't know whether it was the Republic or Northern Ireland where her ancestors came from, so I thought I would get ahead of the game by looking at the websites and at that point became confused as to which ones covered which areas.  ???
You have all been very helpful in lessening that confusion and added some that I had not come across as well.
Thank you all very much  and I love a challenge :D

Ireland / Complete Beginner in Irish research needs pointing in the right direction
« on: Wednesday 19 September 18 00:58 BST (UK)  »
Hi all,

Now this is a real newby question - sorry!. I am familiar with FH research in England and Wales and also to some extent Scotland but have just been asked to help someone with a family tree which has Irish Ancestors. I have looked through the stickies and am just getting more and more confused ???

Now I appreciate that the records are not as complete as England and Wales but what is really confusing me is which websites I would need to use for

a) looking at the 1901 and 1911 Censuses - are the websites different for Northern Ireland and the Republic?
b) BMD certificates similarly are there different websites to use dependent on which part of Ireland you are looking?
c) Parish records. I see some seem to be on FindMyPast but is there anywhere else to search?
d) Griffiths valuations.
and anything else you think might be helpful.

Once I can get a handle on where I need to look I might be able to make a start but until then...... ::)

Thankyou for your patience

Jackie  :D
