Cavanaghs
« on: Saturday 31 October 15 12:59 GMT (UK) »
Hi  :) I'm in South Africa. My grandmother was Gladys Louise Cavanagh born 1895 (can't find place of birth).
The only record of her and her family being here is her marriage certificate (to Donald Alroy Bradfield) wherein I (yay finally) found the name of her parents: William and Agnes Cavanagh.
My problem: I can't find where they are from (in Ireland). I think the records of their birth/marriage may have been destroyed.  :-\ 
My father says his grandfather came out here to work on the railways.. there is no verification of that, that I can find. Sigh. Thank you for listening. Besides saving for airfare to Ireland and doing a "foot search"  ;) .. stuck on a way forward now .. Thank you for listening :)

Just a note of caution.
FamilySearch has the original marriage certificate and it states Gladys's country of birth to be South Africa.

Oh my goodness really? Thank you. On the wiggly faded old S.African one I found there was no place of birth. I'm so grateful to you guys..

Oh that's her  :)  :) 16 October, yes so she was born here then. Now I go back and recalculate re-research as I thought she was born in Ireland  :) (My family doesn't have her personal documents or, it seems, a memory of them)  ;D so .. thank you!
