An American Working in Skiberdeen
« on: Thursday 14 June 07 03:58 BST (UK) »
My husband's great-grandfather, Sidney Gott, was born in Gloucester, Massachusetts, USA in 1864.  In about 1893 he moved his family to Skiberdeen, County Cork, Ireland to persue a career as a fish merchant.  He stayed there until about 1908 before moving on to England.  What paperwork would he have to file with the Irish government in order to be an alien working and living in Ireland?  If there was required registration of some sort with the Irish government, where would I find those documents?
