Im trying to trace the marriage of my great grandmother and great grandfather.
I have traced my great grandmother to both the 1901 and 1911 census but the records for her age don't seem to be accurate. In the 1901 census she is recorded as being 22 and the 1911 census as 28! I don't have enough details about my great grandfather (age where he lived etc.) so Im basing most of my research on what I actually know.
When I found my great grandmothers details in the 1901 census I went back using her parents names and the only birth date I found for her was November 1877 which would have made her 24 in the 1901 census - worse again
Basically she was single in 1901 and a widow in 1911 and Im trying to fill in the gaps.
I know for sure my grandmother was born in June 1904. In the 1901 census there is a record of my grandmothers sister who I was always under the impression was younger than my grandmother as being 7 and my grandmother 6 which means her sister was born in 1903.
I would then be looking for marriages after April 1901 and Im thinking along the lines of 1902.
Found one marriage in the April to June quarter of 1902 everything matches except the image numbers. If the person recording the census made a mistake in the 1911 census regarding my grandmothers sister I have one more possible marriage in the July September 1903 quarter - everything matches again except for the image no.!
I did call the HSE office in Cork to see could I have a look at the register book but there is a years waiting list - any idea where I can go after this?
Thanks for all your input and help it has been great
