Dublin / Re: Ordering birth cert

Hi. The workhouse records (South Dublin Union) are online on FindMyPast which is a subscription site, though you can also buy credits or they do free trials as well. If the army records give Richard at the same address as the 1901 census - that's a clincher !  :)

If you check the civil birth of Thomas the youngest 3rd May 1891 it gives an address at 22 Queens Sq.
(unfortunately it now gives mother as DUNNE but the baptism image for St Andrews is online on Ancestry and that has the same DOB of 3rd May 1891.)
Workhouse records in 1893 show that both Richard and Christopher Byrne (aged 6 and 4) of 22 Queen's Sq entered the workhouse for medical treatment and were to be returned to their mother - a widow.
This looks to be Thomas Byrne (the father) death - same address 22 Queen's Square and he is listed as a stoker.
Richard turns up in Workhouse records again in 1903 - a nurse child at a farm in Knockmitten with a Mary Tierney - it is found that he is "working with son on the land" and it is ordered that he be
returned to schooling.
I'd think that Mary has already died as well at this stage - so may be why Christopher gives brother Richard as NOK and not his mother when he joins the army.
All seems to fit - but no clincher !!
Is there an address for Richard in the Army records ?

EDIT - would have made more sense if I'd posted on the related thread

There is a Jesse smith  born 1906 who married Fred greatbanks a relative on ancxxxty didn't think they.d had any children
That marriage church record between Fred Greatbanks and Jessie Smith is on Ancestry and the bride has left all her fathers details blank, so could well be the right person.
I can't see a divorce (closed for 100 years I think) but Jessie 'Smith or Greatbank' later married Albert E Lincoln in Manchester in 1956. Fred seems to have remarried to an Esther Shaw in 1955. Jessie seems to have died in Manchester as Jessie Lincoln in 1972 (10e/203) giving a birth date as 31 Aug 1906 . This fits with the birth reg in Swansea in Dec 1906.
Did you ever buy the Jessie Smith birth cert ? or do you know her birth date from the newspapers.
Can't find any children born to this Jessie Smith/Greatbank/Lincoln.

I'd be fairly certain that she's at Whitworth Rd as well - see here for access to records etc

It would have taken place at St Laurence O' Tool's church. They do have a volunteer archivist who does look up's so contact the parish office

Also just to note the activities in Sean Ross and other 'homes' are presently the subject of a Commission of Investigation.

Maybe Rootsireland would be worth a try. I seem to remember that St Michans & St Pauls are a bit 'mixed up' and Rootsireland are the only ones that have St Pauls records - and William Jnr does give his birth as Parish Of St Pauls according to the other thread.

Ina Connolly Heron's witness statement gives some details on her father's brother John - namely that he was in the Army and died in 1916
A bit more snooping says that he enlisted using the name REID. That appears correct as one of his files (1914) exists giving his wife as Elizabeth Aicheson/ Connolly of 4 Fountain Close, Edinburgh.
His death is here:,%20JOHN
and they married 8th August 1891 (you can buy that on Scotlandspeople)
The file says they have 5 children but none are named unfortunately.
You really need your g grandfather's birth cert - or failing that his marriage cert or I believe Scottish death certs name parents names as well ?
