What fun! I have found my G/Gfathers death in 1898, plus births of 5 boys, still looking for another. Cannot get my GGfathers birth or GGmothers death, think 1876.  Many thanks for your help

Yes it can be fun finding them....

What you can do for Deaths is just put Surname in, no location, select Deaths and put year range in as they might not have been in Athy..

...or Deaths may not have been registered.

Have you checked the Unknown ones... the Index was used when compiling the records on database, the actual Image of Cert will have first name on them in vast majority of cases.

How do I get birth, marriage and death certificates re myGG/father in Athy region please?
Think I have found my GGmother's death in 1888, but there are no specific details on the page.
I guess I need the marriage certificate for my GG's so I can find their parents.
