Welcome back. Last week we took a break from researching your family history to announce the availability of www.findmypast.ie to Dublin City library card holders. This week I am glad to say that we have been granted permission by the National Archives of Ireland to use James Callan’s will in this blog.
Researching your family history: Commonwealth Graves Commission
Welcome to week seven in the second series of researching your family history during lockdown. Last week we looked at James Callan’s will and saw that he had left all his possessions to his mother, Katherine Callan who lived at Marlborough Street, Dublin.
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.
Researching your family history: Irish Army Census Collection 1922
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.
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.
