McHugh - Kilglass, Roscommon
« on: Monday 19 April 10 23:25 BST (UK) »
I need help finding the parents and relatives of Catherine McHugh b. apx. 1849 Ireland.  She married Hugh Shanahan b. apx. 1841 and they lived in Kilglass, Knockhall, Co. Roscommon.  I posted a previous message and was able to track down the Shanahan side of the family but got stuck on the McHugh's.  How do I go about finding out who her parents and siblings are.  I have looked up every possible site and can't connect her to anyone.  Any help please?

Have you located the marriage of Catherine and Hugh ?

If that is a civil marriage it will give both their father's names and occupations, and if it's a church marriage it may include details on father's also. Knowing this detail would help you to locate the correct family, and possibly a baptism for Catherine.

To search for Catherine's baptism in church records you would need to establish her family religion and where her family lived - i.e. parish, town or townland.

Hi Shane,
I know they were Roman Catholic but I am not sure where she was born.  I know there are alot of McHugh's in the Knockhall area but I don't know how to find the marriage certificate.  I believe they were married in 1867 and it probably was in that same area.  Where do I look for the marriage info?  Thanks.

If they married any time from 1864 then it should be registered, and once you've located the reference you could order a marriage cert.

Have a look at 2 Minute Introduction to Irish Records

Hi dnk,

I would love to share information with you - I am researching Owen Shanahan's line for a friend and you appear to have put together quite a bit of info on this family.  Would you mind contacting me at my email address?  Many thanks.

Linda
