Researchers of Irish Ancestors understand how hard it is to find records for their family line of interest. Ancestry.com and Ancestry.co.uk have limited information about Ireland. I have been researching the surname Laverty and have been unable to get any further without comformation from a marriage record and a birth record.
The marriage record to confirm the father of the groom and the birth record to confirm the name of his mother.
I had narrowed down the dates for both records using a a couple of sites. One, Emerald ancestors to find out the marriage details. Then i had found the Ancestor in the 1901 and the 1911 census. This had helped narrow down the year of birth. To confirm the father of the groom i could have ordered a marriage certificate from Ireland. This would have cost around 11 pounds .I took a cheaper option, i found the records on Ancestry Ireland. I used the pay as you go method and paid 8 pounds to view 2 records. I was happy with the results but i had been quite sure before i viewed the records that they were the right ones.
So take a look at Ancestry Ireland and when you are sure of your dates take the plunge and view the records
