Another example from Galway: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Galway/Templetogher/Cartron_West/1382466/ Dan Reilly, a male school boy, was described by his grandparents as their "niece". In 1911, the form was clearly poorly edited before it was collected, so that the 48-year-old head...

Re: Glynn family mystery still

The general policy was to microfilm only pre-1880 church records. So for an 1886 baptism in most Clare parishes, you will have to either consult the original register in the parish or pay Clare Heritage & Genealogy Centre a large sum for whatever extract it made when allowed to borrow the original r...

Re: Conntae an Chláir a triocha agus a tuatha

Thanks, Sharon. Triocha (literally "thirties") and tuatha (literally "lands") were old administrative divisions, long pre-dating the division of Ireland into counties.
