Do you think that there might be any parish records that might have something?

Hi all,
I am relatively new to this site so forgive any silliness! ::)

I have a record of John Lehane marrying Katherine Daley in Dowlais on 1st December 1934 in a roman catholic chapel.  My question is, would there be any record of either mother on the marriage record somewhere?  The certificate only has father and I want to be sure that I am tracing the right family.  (see my Cork post: Lehane last week).

Thanks in advance for any help

wow! thank you so much - so it is the right family!  ;D Can I ask how/where you got the details of the marriage?  So I guess from here I need to find members of the rest of the family to see whether anyone can remember him coming back to Ireland in the 60's -although I guess that is a shot in the dark.  Are there any indexed records of deaths in Ireland?  One school of thought is that he went to London for a while before returning to Ireland when he left the family in the 60's. Or is there any other avenue I could try?

Again, any help is gratefully received - I can't believe I didn't know about this site before!  :)

Hi many many thanks for that  :) - I need to double check the certificate when I get home but my notes says that John's father was James and a farmer.  There was one James who was a farmer on the census (I put Cork as the county) which seems pretty hopeful, but not sure how I can check further as the possible brother and sisters names aren't there which was a bit disappointing.  Should I contact Merthyr for any possible extra details on the marriage record?
Any help gratefully appreciated.

Hi, I am new to Rootschat so please forgive any inexperience!

I am trying to find out any information regarding my husband's grandfather John Lehane and relatives. Apparently born in Kanturk, Co Cork in 1906, travelled to Wales at some point where he married Katherine Daley (b. 1913 Dowlais, Merthyr Tydfil) on 1st Dec 1934. Moved to Corby employed by steelworks, then moved to Kettering. Last heard of in London having left during 1960's. Had a brother called Denny(?) believed to have remained in Cork who had 13 children (?). Also had a sister possibly Molly who married and lived in Kanturk and who used to write to him. He was unable to read. Any information gratefully received. My father-in-law has assumed for some time that his father is no longer on this earth plane but would like to have closure on what actually happened to him and maybe get in touch with his family in Cork. 
Best wishes Julie
