Dave, thanks for your quick response. I see you highlit Michael's spouse as Neacy, I also came across that but have kept with Treacy as there were Treacys living in Stoneyacre at the time of Mary and Michael and Treacy is recorded on the Marriage cert of Catherine, my Grandmother. I seem to have hit the wall with details of Michael and Mary. Once again thanks from a neighbour across the ditch! Kath.
Hello Kath,

I highlighted it because I noticed it was different. Go with the other spelling if it crops up more often. I get so frustrated searching Irish records, not just because I know so many are missing because of the 1922 fire but because so much seems to be missing from the Civil Registration records in 1860s & 1870s. I have Victorian death and marriage certificates and shipping records that give birth date and place and I can't find the records. Not in some tiny village but in Dublin 1861. :rolleyes:


Dave, you're a busy man! Thanks again. I'm new at this Irish digging and I'm frustrated so I'll spare a thought for those been at it years!. Kath
Hello Kath,

I have the full date of birth of three children of my GG grandfather in Co Down and I know both parent's names but can't find any of the births. So both of my Irish lines, HAMILTON & BLACKLEY are brick walls in 1830s. Something to expect researching in Ireland. :rolleyes:
