I have now realised that the use of niece or nephew to describe a grandchild in 1901 and 1911 was so widespread that it is not worth trying to document every occurence on this thread. However, I have just come across a literal translation of sean-athair and sean-mháthair that is...

I have been researching a Malone family whose address is given on birth and marriage records as Millpark up to 1895 and I have found them in Kilkerin townland in the censuses of 1901 and 1911. While they could have moved between 1895 and 1901, I think it is more likely that Millpark is a local name ...

Maggie Jane Lynch was double counted in 1911, with her parents in Moveen West and as a "niece" with her maternal grandmother in Furroor Upper. See http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Clare/Moveen/Moveen_West/362983/ and http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Clare/Mo...

Sorry, Bob, I should have avoided the terms "senior" and "junior" when referring to a sequence of more than two generations with the same name. Let's try numbering the generations I, II and III. Edward Bennett I married Margaret McNamara. I do not know either his father's name or...

Here's an unusual mixture from Kerry: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Kerry/Banna/Carrahane__Upper/277401/ The household of Timothy and Deborah Griffin includes their "Grand Daughter" Mary Egan (whose parents are in the household) and their two "Nieces" (also gra...

Margaret McNamara had siste...

Another Sligo/Mayo example ... Bridget Kelleher was baptised in KILSHALVEY KILTURRA (Bunninadden) parish in County Sligo.

Thomas Deenihan died there on 11 Aug 1915 aged 28, leaving a widow and three children under five and a number of siblings, including Catherine, married to Martin McGrath, also away at war at the time, with three ch...

Mary Ellen went to live with her maternal grandparents on the Sligo side of the county boundary after her mother's death, while her broth...
