Dublin marriage - advice please
« on: Tuesday 15 February 11 18:01 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

I'm looking for advice as to how to find a marriage between my great grandparents in Dublin.

The only record I can find is in the 1901 census for Dublin when they have a 5 year old son. They are both down as Catholic although we thought my great grandfathers family were Anglican.

Their names were William Conway & Kate / Kathleen Dolan.

Any advice as to where to try (via web) would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Have you found then on the 1911 census ?

The return for that year includes number of years married which can help narrow the search.

see the BMD Index on the following link.  You have to search for the bride & groom separately and look for a cross match of the details (registration district, year/quarter, volume & page numbers) to find a possible marriage

Many thanks Shane - will try the link.

As for 1911 I can't find them in either Ireland or England (they moved here in about 1915 we think) which is equally frustrating as I think there must be a transcription error somewhere, but it continually eludes me.

I dont see any 5 year old male Conway children in Dublin on the 1901 census - what address did you find the family at ?

Many thanks again Shane,

Think I've got the marriage.

William Conway & Kate Dolan both in apr-jun 1899 in Dublin South with same film, volume, page and digital folder number but different image numbers.

I will try tracking from there.

Cheers

as a starting point here's a possible Index match for Herbert's birth :

 Name: Herbert Henry Conway
 Registration District:  Dublin South
 Event Type: Birth
 Quarter and Year: Jan-Mar 1901
 Volume : 2 / Page: 630

He could have been born late in 1900, and registered in the first quarter on 1901. For notes on ordering cert etc see :

 Details included on a Birth Cert
