Minister Humphreys and Dublin City Lord Mayor visit newly refurbished Central Library
Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys TD, today (3rd December 2020) visited the newly refurbished Central Library in Dublin City Centre which has received €200,000 from her Department.
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.

At this point of a phased re-opening there will be no seating for reading or studying, and users are encouraged to keep their visit as short as possible, and to use the self-service kiosks or library app to issue and return items.
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.
