Apologies - I'm not very technically minded.

I'm trying to decipher the location in this record. It looks like Murtin but maybe it's latin?

Thanks in advance.

Not at all - they're good detailed screen grabs.

I can't do any better than Murtin myself but here's a link to the same image on irishgenealogy.ie which is a little clearer.

Do you have any background info that might help us?

Cheers Hermy.

I'm helping out a chap who contacted me yesterday - our Trees overlap.

The father of the child is likely to be Francis Tothill, husband of Mary Anne Delahunt's aunt, Annie (the witness).

I'll mess around this afternoon to see if I can dig anything else up.

Would the gap of almost a month between birth and baptism be unusual?

Not for Protestants, if they were. Is there a civil cert for the birth?

Haven't managed to find it yet. I've tried Delahunt as birth surname.

Complete supposition on my part but some of the Delahunts and Millers came Wicklow and I was thinking Murtin... The Murrough?

This is Annie Miller and her husband, Francis:

Here's John Miller (entry 440):

I need help deciphering the addresses from very poor handwriting on a Westport marriage. Initially I thought it the first letter was a 'B' but it doesn't match the B in Batchelor. Now I think it begins Innis-something.

To back that up, at the top of the page the district is surely Aghaghower parish, district of Islandeady, Union of Wesport. That's the strangest 'I' I ever saw in Islandeady - it looks like a G!

It's the marriage first entry ; John Quinn & Mary Moran. Addresses unknown. Edit : additional info - The wife died before the census, the kids are born in Innishnakillew (Kilmeena parish) where the family still resides in 1901 & 1911. However that does not appear to be either address above.

https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy....63/5966356.pdf

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Rootsireland have it transcribed as Inniscoolagh and Letterean.

Edit**
actually, looking at Inishnakillew on logainm.ie does throw up a couple of possibilities that could have been written as Inniscoolagh, so it might well be supposed to be Inishnakillew.

Thanks very much Spurious - I don't have a Roots Ireland subscription, I thought they just transcribed parish registers. I never considered them for GRO records.

Logainm was very useful since it showed the Irish is name Inis na Coilleadh - which could just as easily be anglicised as Inis Coolagh. A different address before marriage might be a potential clue but I'm satisfied now he remained stationary.

As for Letterean - I was miles off. I was seeing a non-existant Seltenen!

The parish record gave no addresses at all so I'm very grateful. Thanks again.

Hi all,

Would appreciate any extra info that could be gleaned from this army pay book - you can view in full by clicking through, then clicking Load in Full Resolution)



It looks like (my comments in square brackets):

[faint scribble] FD 1869 [is this a year - what might "FD" mean?] Louisa [wife] [something illegble] "66th Regiment"
1872- [not sure does this mean their birthdate?] Children Mary-Ann/Elizabeth
Father [faint scribble - could be press-thru from another document]
Mother [two year dates on left and more scribbles] Ann - Croomlagh - Cavan [presumably her latest residence or place of birth]
Brothers and Sisters [text struck through so not sure if accidental - looks like was about to write daughter Elizabeth down again]

If anything thinks that in particular the scribbles in the 3d panel mean anything please let me know,

P.

#oceanclub probably this won't be much help but could it be 'High. i.e. Highlanders 66th Regiment? The sister looks like Eliza. That's all I can get from it.

Hi all, just wondering if anyone can decipher the date on this?

Also, would the names Ellie and Ellen have been considered interchangeable in the early 1900s? I'm trying to decide if two certs I have and a census record are for the same person.

January tenth? Would need the full page to be more sure.

Ellie/Ellen could easily be the same person. Maybe also Nell, Helen, Eleanor etc.. However, ideally look for something else too - a location, surname of witness etc..
