Not sure if I have the correct family but if they are it looks a bit confusing-

There is a Samuel Jerome age 58 living at Glanford, Wentworth, Ontario but racial origin listed as American, born Canada, Methodist, wife Charity of Irish descent.
Also in Wentworth, part of Ward 1, is a Samuel Jerome, born Dec.1882, with wife Edna born Sept.1886, son Jerome Jerold born Oct.1910. All 3 born Ontario, Samuel listed as German racial origin, Methodist, carpenter.

You can look at actual records on click "1911" in upper right corner and proceed from there to transcribed page, then click "split view" to see actual census sheet.

Sara- until fairly recently people were admitted to mental hospitals for illnesses whcih would either not require hospitalisation or would not require a long-term stay.

Not sure about records for London asylums but my grandfather's aunt died in one 1952 Ireland. I wrote letter to record office there asking if there was any iformation on her. A few weeks later a doctor phoned me and read through the file, explaing medical terms, etc. In the files were letters from her sons (which gave me addresses) and even better, one of her sons was admitted with her so I got information from his file. Son was wounded in WWI and she looked after him, became senile and went into asylum, and son also admitted.
If you can find which hospital your ancestor was in, perhaps you'll also be able to get details from the records. Good luck.

Completed Census Requests / Re: IGI

Halfpint- I have found a similar situation in a local church register. A widow with several children had 3 or 4 children (well after husband's death) baptised, not in their church but a nearby church, with dead husband listed as father. He died in a cart accident which was mentioned in local newspaper and couldn't have been the father of her younger children. If the entries were copied onto IGI it would confuse anyone researching the family especially if they knew the husband was already dead!

Photgraph shows her holding what looks like a letter in her left hand. Possibly picture was taken to send to relative far away?

Antrim Completed Look up Requests / Re: Duneane Pres. church

Am a bit confused by your posting. Many Church of Ireland registers, sent to Dublin for safe-keeping, were destroyed in Dublin but I wasn't aware of Presbyterian records also destroyed.
According to "A History of Congregations in the Presbyterian Church in Ireland 1610-1982" Duneane Presbyterian Church was made a joint charge with First Randalstown Presbyterian Church in 1944.

Index to Presbyterian Church Records give a microfilm number 416 but no dates, which sounds as though PRONI might have some records in their collection.

Have never seen announcements of families leaving Ireland in the newspapers- if you are lucky your family would have inserted marriages and deaths in the local paper!
Church records are one of the best sources in Ireland for pre-registration records but in order to track down church records you will need ancestor's location (preferable the townland and parish) and religion.
Pettigo is on Fermanagh/Donegal border so you should check both counties.
