Delaney-Condron of Crettyard
« on: Friday 09 November 18 10:47 GMT (UK) »
Please can anyone help me.  I am trying to find the Irish connection in my family.  My late father used to talk about going on holiday to his grandparents farm in Crettyard as a boy (he was born in Scotland in 1908) and that his cousin was Pat Delaney (who was a footballer).  All I've got to go on is a marriage certificate for my grandparents who married in Scotland after leaving Ireland.  My grandmother was Elisa Condron and she married William Weir in 1901.  I think my great grandmother was Elisa Delaney who married a Condron.  I'm 69 now and I would love to pass on the Irish connection to my grandchildren so any help would be very much appreciated.
Thank you.

Toolkit Top Tip

Don't ignore siblings!

Once your Irish genealogy project is underway, be sure to include the brothers and sisters of your direct ancestors.

All I've got to go on is a marriage certificate for my grandparents who married in Scotland after leaving Ireland.  My grandmother was Elisa Condron and she married William Weir in 1901.
What information is the on the marriage cert about their fathers, when (even approx) were the Elisa and William born?
You can't fish on a empty stomach so give the man one or two records so he knows how good it tastes.
