I was wondering could anyone help me.  I have been trying to find a death cert for this person.  Her name on her birth cert was Mary Agnes Dignam.  Her Baptism record says her name was Alice Dignam.  She was born on 11 August 1878.  I found her on the 1901 drogheda Ireland Census as Alice Dignam but found a death cert in Naas for 1909  aged 28 could this be the same women.  Im trying to get a marriage cert for her parents Thomas Dignam and Catherine Weldon.  They married between 1864 and 1871.

You will need to order the 1909 death certificate to see what information is listed (parents (unless one is the informant), birthdate and place are not on death certificates).

You already have a topic for this couple-

A possible marriage is listed in reply #13 on that thread.

Hi I was wondering was the condition  tuberculosis out in 1909.  My grand mother died with condition.  She is regiested in Nass as death.  I was wondering is there a hospital near there.  Or is there an Archive of all the Irish people that died of  tuberculosis

I can't help with your questions, but I think the answer to this:

Or is there an Archive of all the Irish people that died of  tuberculosis

is "No". Causes of deaths by TB will be on death certifcates as you have found.

If there was an epidemic in an area and many died, there may be a write up about it in the local paper, but unless the individual was a prominent member of the community, I doubt that all of those who died would be mentioned by name. But maybe you could check this? Maybe an obituary, if there was one, might give further information.

There would be no general database of all Irish who died of TB.

Could Alice and Agnes be the same name.  If she was born as Mary Agnes on her birth cert and her baptism record says Alice could this be the sameperson

As far as I am aware the names Alice and Agnes are usually not interchangable.

People often used their middle names rather than first names, so for example, Mary Agnes and Agnes Mary, or just Mary or just Agnes, may be the one person.

But if her birth certificate says her name is Mary Agnes, but her baptism record says she is Alice, then you might be looking at two different people. Are parent's names given on both birth and baptism records, and if so, are they the same?

I suppose it might be possible for a person to be given a name at birth or baptism and go through most of their life using another name, and die with that name, But when they are born/baptised I can't think why they would be given two completely different names. Were the family Roman Catholics? I know nothing about these things, but might she have been given a different name for some religious reason?

You really need to look at names of parents.
