Elaine- civil registration of births in Ireland started in 1864. If Isabella was born before this date there will be no birth certificate. Also, registration wasn't compulsory until 1870 and often births weren't registered then.
The surname may be spelt differently such as Gallagher, O'Gallager, etc.
Strabane is actually in County Tyrone not Donegal although as it's on the border it's possible the family lived in Co. Donegal but near Strabane and gave the details for the census that way.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Thanks aghadowey
I have just checked her death cert again
she died in Greenock May 1934 aged 68
so that gives her a birth date of either 1865 or 1866
I will have a look on the IGI see what I can find

Hi Elaine

The census records you've listed above are for my family and set of Gallachers.
I am descended from James Gallacher and his wife Mary, and then from their son Daniel.
James 's father was John Gallacher and came from Donegal.
I've been informed that James came to Scotland in 1826, which i think might be a liitle early but he was in Scotland by 1837.
Are they related to your set of Gallachers in any way ?

Cheers,
Warren

I dont know anything about my Gallacher's yet  :(
except that they were still in Ireland in 1865/66
thats when Isabella was born  but you never know (maybe somewhere down the line)
I am glad I kept those census's and was able to help sorry I dont know where in Ireland they came from though I will see if I have anything else relating to this family
if I find out anything about mine I will let you Know

just realised James was born 1855
his birth cert will give his parents place of birth
it can be obtained from Scotlands People
