Ignore the title please.
I need help tracking down a marriage record between a Julia o Brien and Michael o Brien.Julia was born in 1873-74 michael was born 1863-64.
I have had considerable trouble looking for a marriage record of some form.They are from the townland of ballinvoher turloughmore (civil parish lackagh) only one record in all Ireland shows up but it wouldn't make sense as Julia would be only 10 years old and Michael 20 years and they're from Galway not bantry.
Also they had their first child in 1896 and had one after the other ,it's says they have been married since 1895-96
I thought marriage records were Mandatory after 1875 or is there a list of missing records?if anyone could help me I would be very thankful!The reason I am asking this is I am finding trouble proving where Julia o Brien came from as a family member doesn't know even though his mother was o Brien one record in all Galway shows up in tuam at the date 1873-1874 in galway
