The sponsor for the baptism of Michael Brady (3rd) seems to me to read Leathe.
I've never come across this name before.
I'm usually able to figure out scribbles, could someone else help with this name?

Looks like Cathe Hartneady? - same surname as the mother. I haven't come across that surname before.

I am fascinated by names I've never heard of, like Hartneady. Mr. Genealogy knows all about it though.https://www.johngrenham.com/surnamescode/grogeochart_full.php?surname=Hartneady

I hadn't realized it was that uncommon of a name. Saying that, I only have 1 so far in my tree.
Does anybody have any tips for searching Clare records (pre-1865)?
I have roots, Irish genealogy etc but the Clare record availability is poor
Can anyone read the name of the female sponsor in this baptism? Annie ------? Right-hand page, 3rd from the bottom. From FindMyPast NY Catholic records. Gerr? Girr? Gun? Not a name I recognize.
I can't zoom it up, Virginia.
If you post the url, people with a subscription can look.
Wasn't sure the best way to do this but here is the link to image 9 of 596 baptism images for Transfiguration RC Parish in NY NY (Manhattan). Baby is Patrick Quinlan. Right-hand page, 3rd from the bottom. Thanks, PinkyPinky, for the suggestion. And thanks BowWow for the interpretation.
And here's the tinyurl--
It looks like Gevr when I zoom it up.
So I don't have a url to link to here because this is a paid for record from the UK GRO. I'm look for help with 2 things please:
Occupation: collector for a ?
Cause of death: malignant disease of ? ?
Pinkypinky, yours looks to me like "Collector for a Mission of 2 Tolmer Square Pancras".
Thanks for your suggestion for my mystery name. It will be an Irish name but is certainly not a common one.
Peritoneum for cause of death?
Yes, thanks agree on Virginia's suggestion and Hermy's but there's another word after it e---h--a?
Alternative spelling of Asthenia (weakness / fatigue often in people with cancer) perhaps? https://www.cancer.gov/publications/dictionaries/cancer-terms/def/asthenia
Certainly possible: thanks.
Yes, asthenia looks right.
What I thought was an E is maybe just a squiggle before the A.
Hi, would be grateful for any help to figure out the name of the person who is recorded as comon law wife of David Skerritt on the attached record.
I think it looks like Mrs Anne Mc Donagh
Looks like someone with a light touch when they wrote this one, looking at line 10 marriage of Albert A Wayte and Mary M Dolan, particularly the occupations of Albert and his deceased father.
Any thoughts welcome
Right, the Dad says garage proprietor - which ties in with this death: https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/deaths_returns/deaths_1924/05025/4373793.pdf
Albert - manager of XXX waggon Co. I suggest looking in trade directories for the period.
