Re: Parish Records - Transcribers Register

There appear to be a couple of typos on the Sixmilebridge page at https://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclare/genealogy/don_tran/bmd/sixmilebridge_parish_baptism_records.htm The links to the middle sections of the spreadsheets say "1840-1854" in two places but should say "1840-1864". The names of the ...

Re: Fr. Patrick Quaid

Sharon You do not appear to have mentioned Fr. Ignatius Murphy's monumental three-volume History of the Diocese of Killaloe, which I think provides the best background for any study of a 19th century priest of the diocese. Other Clare priests that come to mind for their public campaigning and pastor...

Re: Carrigaholt registers

Hi Sheila It was not you but the National Library who mislabelled the 1878-80 Kilballyowen microfilm! I have a link from https://irelandxo.com/ireland-xo/visiting/about-moyarta to Murray's 2013 version of the Carrigaholt baptisms at http://www.facebook.com/groups/countyclare/462797053791424/ which a...

Re: Carrigaholt registers

Sheila You have really gone beyond the call of duty in repeating Murray Ginnane's efforts and giving us another version of the Carrigaholt registers. Many thanks. One small point - the microfilm containing baptisms from 19 Feb 1878 to 29 Mar 1881 and marriages from 5 Mar 1878 to 30 Apr 1881 at http:...

Re: DEENIHAN of Kilrush

Over nine years on, I stumbled across the marriages of Maurice Deenihan's parents, Thomas Denihan (son of another Maurice) and Bridget Shea, who were married first in the established church in Rathronan, County Limerick, on 28 Aug 1853 (see civil record ) and again in the Catholic church in Athea pa...

Re: niece/nephew = grandchild ?

Another variant on the same theme: John Griffin was enumerated with his maternal grandparents as "Niece" in 1901 but "Nephew" in 1911. http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Clare/Cahermurphy/Cahermurphy/1080464/ http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Clare/Cahermurphy/Cahermurph...

Re: Did John Clancy from Clare marry his brother's widow (1924)?

Almost 11 years on, Jim Herlihy has drawn my attention to this Clancy family again with a post in a Facebook group called "Royal Irish Constabulary1816-1922 -A forgotten Irish Police Force".

John Clancy's daughter-in-law has appeared in an online phone book since I last looked for her.

Re: John Egan (jun) of Kilrush m. 1862 Anne Kelly of Glascloon

When I started this thread almost nine years ago, I suspected that Anne Egan née Kelly was a half-sister of my GGgrandmother Mary Clancy née Galvin, whose widowed mother Mary Galvin née Conors or O'Connor married Thomas Kelly of Glascloon shortly after the death of her first husband in 1837. I subse...

Re: niece/nephew = grandchild ?

Another interesting example, where the child's "RELATION to Head of Family" is given as "Grand Daughter", while her "RANK, PROFESSION OR OCCUPATION" is given as "Neice"!
