Hi there i been trying to locate a birth index so i am able to purchase a birth certificate of my 3rd great grandfather.

i just received his marriage certificate this morning, he married in 1863 and was aged 24 which makes him born approx 1839 / 1840

and all of his census say he was born in DULBIN IRELAND
but i am unable to locate his birth, aswel as a death

his wife was called Mary dogget,
and his father was called John Quinn, i am unable to find out his mother name as i am unable to locate any census before 1871 for peter,

can someone please help me, any help would be very much appreciated

Registration of births in Ireland only commenced in Jan 1864, so you won't find a birth cert for Peter; however, you may a baptism record for him at this site

Where did he marry? - Ireland or elsewhere?
What was his religion?
Did he have siblings? If so, their names might help.
As far as you know, did his parents/siblings stay in Dublin?

Happy hunting!

Hello Claire,
All I can suggest is you would have to go for Irish Church Births and Baptism's unfortunatly they are pay to view but if you are really keen Google and you will find it listed.
Good luck.

This is a Free website for some Irish Births Deaths and marriages.

Lots of Dublin Church Records on it too, so you might find some information for your family.

Oh and if you are lucky you might be able to view the original hand written document..

Early records don't give that much information but later ones will have addresess too.

Good luck.
