Hi  my name is Joan ,could anyonetell me when passports were first issued ,
  I am looking for when my gmother applied for one to emigrate to the U,S,A in the late 1890s.she was born in Brideswell Athlone ,though she may not have been living there at the time she left Ireland ,she may have been in service ,
her name was Mary Ellen Dolan b 1875/9
                  Also how can I find the civil birth certificate of Michael Dolan son of above b 1894 in Brideswell Athlone .I have the baptism one but want the civil one .I have tried the registrarsin Dublin but had no luck there .I would be very grateful for any information .Thank you and for all your help in the past

i just want to thank Dee Melody for replying to my request regarding passports in Ireland.I looked up Ellis Island but they didn"t have anything .I dont think my gmother went through there when she went to the u,s,a in the late 1899s nor her sister who went  in 1906 ..I have been trying to find what ships they went on but it has been a long search ,but I will just plod on and hope I will get the answers I want .I would like to thank Falkyrn,and Dee and the whole crew who take the time to go through all the papers for everyone you are all great.            Thank you.     Joan  :D
