Re: Thomas Ward marriage

Suggestion: research the Ranelagh (Dublin 6) address given on the 1940 and 1942 birth certificates. It may provide clues relating to Thomas Ward and/or Mary Doyle. Example: Search that Ranelagh address in the Dublin City Electoral Lists for 1937-19­64 - if you can locate them online . The lists may ...

Re: Thomas Ward marriage

2. Thomas Ward was born in Galway, Ireland and not Birmingham, I have proof of that. Can I just ask what proof you have that confirms TW was born in Galway? It will help with any further research undertaken. Also, you haven't confirmed yet what TW's occupation was - as per the 1940 and 1942 birth c...

Re: Moses Thomas , February 1854, Tonypandy area

Do you have a copy of his 1876 marriage cert to Margaret Rees? If so, what is his father's name and occupation? I note that in the 1871 census, Moses is listed as "step-son" in the Richards household. Could he be related to Catherine Richards (nee Howells)? Have you located Catherine Howells in the ...

Re: What happened to Simon Peter?

I will not add more here except to say that I think Simon Peter changed his name - I have later documents that indicate this possibility but i would like to be certain that there are no other records for him which could disprove it. Out of curiosity, and to prevent duplicate research, which documen...

Re: Thomas Ward marriage

Did either of the two Ward siblings (Mary Rose and Patrick) marry? If so, do you have their marriage certs? They should indicate what father Thomas Ward's occupation was.

Re: Thomas Ward marriage

"In early 1942, she and 20 other local women were recruited from the Castledermot area to work in a munitions factory near Birmingham. She went to work at Guest, Keen & Nettleford’s factory in Smethwick" I'm being thick here, but if May C Byrne went to work in Birmingham in 1942, does this mean she...

Re: Thomas Ward marriage

"She married an English war veteran called Joe Morris, her first husband, called Ward, having passed away." Then logically she would have married Joseph Morris as Ward. Whereas the indexes say Byrne. Someone from Down Under has a tree on Ancestry (with photos) which includes May Christina Byrne (19...

Re: Julia Byrne

but on the back it shows a stamp with the words "single women section 14 Nov 1980 received" does anyone know what that means. If it helps, I've seen that term used in relation to ship's (immigration) passenger records, etc. If she did immigrate, it might explain why she had a re-issued birth cert (...

Re: James Trimble (1807 – 1867) Ancestors Brick Wall

You ask why I want to be related to a Confederate General. I certainly would have supported the Union Cause. Actually it was a rhetorical question. ;) I have a paternal ancestor who fought at Gettysburg, so I was already aware of General Trimble. Good luck with your Irish newspapers research. I do ...

Re: James Trimble (1807 – 1867) Ancestors Brick Wall

Check for your known ancestors in Irish newspapers . Depending on how notable they were at the time, you might find birth, marriage, and death notices for some of them. Quite often, these notices will include other family member names, which is a bonus. Marriage notices sometimes provide the bride a...
