Sarah O'Connor, born 1889 in ballymahon,
« on: Monday 14 January 19 12:48 GMT (UK) »
Hello,  just wondering if anyone might help me find out some information about Sarah O'Connor born in 1889 in ballymahon, recorded on the 1911 census as working as a domestic for the garrahan family in cloonbreany Longford.
I have been trying to find a birth record for her that would show her parents names.
Very grateful if anyone could help. Thanks

Yes,  I've notified them of that and hopefully they'll fix it during the next update.

I've found a Bridget Connor who died in 1903, aged 37. She is possibly Sarah's mother. Bridget is recorded on her death certificate as being from tipper (which I think is a townland in Longford). .  I am guessing her year of birth is around 1866.  I found several Bridget Connors born in 1866,. Though I don't know any way to narrow them down.

(I have a DNA match up to one of the descendants of Sarah and we are trying to work out the connection. I've been going through the various names to see if any match up with any of my ancestors - Keatings, Lyons, )

How old was she 1901 census?
