Hi all,

The attached clip is a segment of the 1846 marriage of my x 3 Great grandparents Loughlin Hughes and Anne Dunne, which took place in Portarlington.

It states that Loughlin's place of residence was (interpreted as) 'Emo and Ballintogher', which rings true, however I'm struggling to decipher Anne's place of residence.

Any assistance is much appreciated thanks.


Lancashire / Re: A family mystery....any advice?

Hi all,

Had quite forgotten about this enquiry given the time that has passed since my initial post.

However, just to update the thread, I did indeed find out about my Dad's uncle James Cuddy, and it was quite a sad discovery.

On the death if their mother in 1927 aged 47, five years after their father died (officially Bronchitis, but suspect more likely as a result of gas poisoning) aged 43, the younger children were all split up between the elder children, apart from James.

He was admitted to Blackburn Whalley in 1927 aged 10.

He remained there until his death aged 51. I have no idea if he was ever visited, and none of my surviving aunties/uncles can confirm this either.

I have located a reference to his medical records, but they are unavailable for release for some time owing to the date of the last set of records being some time after.

Was quite shocking for everyone to disover this, as they'd all been told he died in 1927...the year he was admitted!

Dark family secrets...  >:(

Lancashire Lookup Requests / 1939 Register Lookup request - Nora Hilda Gaffney
« on: Tuesday 14 March 17 11:16 GMT (UK)  »

I was wondering if anyone with access would be kind enough to provide me with any details featured within the 1939 Register entry for one Norah Hilda Gaffney.

The site I am currently subscribed to does not have this collection.

Her son, Laurence. E. Gaffney is also listed within the entry from what the preview says.

I'm particularly interested in the place of residence. I am expecting it to a public house in the Edge Hill area of Liverpool.

Any help much appreciated!



Is Luke stated as 'Deceased'?


Thanks Bumblebee.

Can I ask who the witnesses were please?

I was anticipating you saying Luke was a Mariner, but not both...



I would be grateful if someone could provide me with the details of the following marriage please:

14 December 1875, St. Nicolas and St. Annes.

GROOM: James Jordan
SPOUSE:    Margaret Black

I am specifically interested in the Groom's Father's calling please.

Armagh / Re: Upper Killeavy parish records

Hi Shelley,

Ancestry has recently uploaded the following repository of records:

Ireland, Catholic Parish Records, 1655-1915

Parish records for Killeavy Upper are included, starting from 1832 as previously stated. These are currently free to search via the English version of the site throughout March.

I will see what I can find for you.

I too have to say that I'm firmly in the 'put them on the back burner' camp as opposed to giving up.

I have a number of mysteries within various lines of my ancestry, and as frustrating as these brick walls are, it has to be said that they have generated some of the most interesting lines of attempted research along the way.

Despite the frustration that such unresolved lines can bring, I personally feel that they have been the lines that have significantly improved my researching skills, as they have forced me to think 'outside the box'.

That said, sometimes, a break is equally as good a thing as it allows you to clear your mind of that fog that often descends when you're trying so hard to find a way forward (or back perhaps I should say).

Only recently I re-visited a line I had abandoned actively researching, and lo and behold, a new piece of information had found its way online...a little detail admittedly, but just a little something else to add the picture.
