It's about 3am here (Australia) and I'm just about to head to be and thought I'll check my email and there was a reply to my message board.
Yeah I have noticed that Ireland doesn't have a designated births, deaths and marriages database, it makes trying to do family research. And I discovered last night that the census records from the years 1821-1891 were destroyed some by fire and some by the government.
I might check out the ancesrtyireland.com site tomorrow I think the problem is there are just too many William' and James' that it makes trying to get the correct person very hard especially if you don't have all the information.
Just curious your not related to me in some way are you?
