Welcome to the third week in this second series of researching your family history during lock-down. Last week in the Bureau of Military Archives we saw how Aidan McLeod and his two brothers had made applications to the Pensions Board.
Welcome back. Last week we accessed the website, www.irishgenealogy.ie and by clicking on Useful Links we were able to find the 1922 Irish Army census. The record entry we highlighted was for Aidan McLeod from Gorey.
In the last lock-down series we looked at researching our family history by using the online source, www.irishgenealogy.ie The focus in that series was mainly on finding marriage and birth certificates, however, we also looked at the 1911census to find out more about the family.
Welcome to the sixth and final week in this series of researching your family history during lockdown. Last week in an attempt to find James McCormack’s birth certificate I looked at the church records for marriages in St. Mary, Pro-Cathedral, Dublin, October 1903.
Last week we looked at the death certificate for James McCormack and discovered that there was a discrepancy in his age. His death certificate stated that he was forty years of age in 1916 whereas five years earlier the 1911 census records his age as thirty years, which means that he would have been thirty five at the time of his death.
Last week’s blog showed that Catherine McCormack gave birth to a baby boy, Patrick, on the 31 May 1916. The birth record stated that James, the father, was deceased at the time of his birth. This week we are attempting to find out what happened to James Senior.
21st November 2020 is the 100th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, a day of extreme violence when thirty-two people were killed in single day in Dublin city. To mark the centenary of this important day in our history, Dublin City Libraries has created a commemorative programme.
Welcome to our family history blog. In week two we looked at the 1911 census for James McCormack and his wife Catherine. This week we will be looking at the births registers trying to find a birth certificate for James their son and if we are lucky any other children they might have had. We start as usual by accessing www.irishgenealogy.ie
Welcome back, last week using the website www.irishgenealogy.ie we looked at how to find a marriage certificate. Our example was the marriage of James McCormack and Catherine Clarke who married in 1903. This week, staying with this couple, we are going to try tracing them on the 1911 census.
