I'm maybe not understanding how The Thrulines works but l only have ever been given names & details of people from my own tree !!!!!!!

Hi there Do we know if 1921 census will cover Southern Ireland?
I recently found out my grandmother had been married before marrying my grandfather.
The year 1921 would be great to known her exact address rather than a area.

Hi everyone, Hope I'm posting on  correct page. Summerhill Girls School Athlone County Meath.
My grandmother Catherine/Kate Kearns was referred there from Rathdrum Workhouse in 1912 until 1918 while her brother John was sent to St Joseph's Athlone until 1917.
I have seen some information about Summerhill but wondered if there would be any archive records from Kate's time there. This is a period she never spoke about and l have only learnt of this recently.

Hi there many thanks for your replies- my 3/5 cousin is shared dna 31.7cms
Shared segment 2 largest 22cm.
Having looked at dna painted l think it would be 4x Aunt or Uncle.

I assumed the Aunt who tested would have shown up but didnt. The second wants to test with another company but am l correct in thinking that it should have show up on Myheritage ?

Good Morning Rootchatters l need advise, having taken Myhertiage dna l found a distant link 3rd-5th cousin.
We were excited as the link could be my alleged father (now dead). So 3rd-5th tested her mother and grandmother just to be sure. When the results arrived shock nothing matched.
The grandmother is sister of alleged father so to my mind and theirs she should be my Aunt.
I have tested with Ancesty & uploaded to Livingdna a while ago but haven't had a link to my paternal side. We were all disappointed but lv accepted it maybe a coincidence and that l matched 3rd-5th  via her paternal line. Headache or what now another of my potential Aunts wants Us to do a British DNA one to one. Is it possible to do this? l don't want to clutch at straws but at the same time l was the one who got the ball rolling.
Please can anyone offer thoughts on this issue

Hi Gadget
Many thanks for the reference links. Makes for interesting reading. So unless I'd totally misunderstood the cousins marrying would give a higher relationship reading for subsequent descendants. Hope that doesn't sound too wordy.
I found it interesting that some 1st cousins decentants of 1st cousins marriage could show up as 1/2 siblings
