Re: Death record unfound

Thanks for that suggestion. I have searched through GROS again from the year they were married until well after she died bu5 am not turning up any death record for him. The daughter’s marriage was too recent to view online so I will need to wait until my local research office is open again. I am sti...

Re: Death record unfound

Thank you for the suggestions. Yes, both parents and their daughter are on the 1911 census. It will be interesting to see if they are also on the 1921 census. I have no idea how long she spent in Liff Hospital. It seemed a bit strange that the death was not recorded by her only daughter, but by a st...

Re: Familysearch.org

Thank you so much for trying to help, Elwyn. This has been a brick wall to me for years now and I’m not sure I will ever solve the mystery. I just hope that by hipping away and finding out more about Irish history and record keeping, I will at leastbstart to understand why it remains a mystery.

Re: Familysearch.org

Thank you so much, Elwyn. Yes, I am well aware of how tricky Irish research can be. Oddly though, I have managed to get so much more from my grandmother’s (Scanlan) side from Sligo.But grandad’s (Hannan) side seems to be something of a closed book. Guess it all depends on how many records survived a...

Re: Familysearch.org

Hi Elwyn. I have checked great grandad’s marriage certificate. He got married in September 1880. According to that, he was aged 30. I have his death certificate from Scottish records too, and have worked out either his age at marriage or at death is inaccurate by a couple of years. His father was a ...

Familysearch.org

Hoping someone can advise me. I have tried familysearch.org to look for Irish records which have so far evaded me. Delighted to find the search threw up a result. But I am not sure if this is based on factual records or based on info put in by another member which may be inaccurate? There is a refer...
