I don't seem to have mentioned this one before: In 1911, Bridget and Johanna Burns, daughters of Richard Burns and Johanna O'Shea, are double-counted, as daughters with their parents in Ballyartney at http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Clare/Coolmeen/Ballyartney/362175/ and as niece an...

Interesting that Joyce considered Leopold to be the Christian name of the Jew Bloom! He wouldn't get away with that slip in today's politically correct world.

murf, don't hold your breath waiting for Doonsallagh baptisms to appear in the Kilmurry Ibrickan transcriptions! The townlands of Carrowduff, Doonsallagh East, Doonsallagh West, Killernan, Knockanalban, Knockloskeraun, Shanavogh East and Shanavogh West in Kilmurry (Ibrickan) civil parish appear to h...

Here's a surprising example from a county Limerick family of mixed religion and with no knowledge of the Irish language. Being of Palatine descent, they probably knew more German than Irish.

There is a decided lack of women in this photograph of the funeral cortege of Mrs. Frost of Sixmilebridge who died on 8 Oct 1888.

John O'Halloran's wife was Catherine, not Jane: See Limerick Chronicle 9 Apr 1842 at http://www.limerickcity.ie/media/04%2009%2042.pdf `On the 6th inst., sincerely regretted by her family and friends, Catherine, relict of the late John O'Halloran, Esq. of this city, and sister of John Kelly, Esq.'

There were two people working on Killard parish (Doonbeg) over two years ago but there is still nothing for this parish on the website. Is the work still ongoing or have the results gone astray somewhere? Or did both stop thinking that the other was continuing?

A Kerry example:
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/p ... re/272838/

Mary and Annie Teresa Woulfe were both granddaughters of the head of household Ellen Woulfe, but are both described as niece on the handwritten return; one has been mistranscribed as "Aunt"!

Another example: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Clare/Knocknagore/Carrowblock_More/1080175/ Norah Hanrahan, described as niece of Margaret Connell, was her granddaughter, born in Jersey City, NJ on 18 Nov 1886 to Michael Hanrahan and Annie (O')Connell and baptized Honora Hanrahan o...

Thanks a million, Jimbo. As you say, the funeral report provides almost as many questions as answers! Women did not attend funerals in those days, as you can see from the fact that all the mourners listed are male! Michael Quinlivan, the Killeens, Christopher Kelly and Fr. Browne are probably all co...

For completeness, here's an example of a nephew wrongly described as a son, in a household where the head indicates that he is a bigamist. One of his so-called wives must be his sister-in-law, and the order of the entries suggests that his so-called son is far more likely to be his nephew: http://ww...
