Ages - civil vs parish records
Boards.ie Forum » Genealogy
by Hermy

When trying to figure out the estimated year of birth of someone for whom no birth or baptismal record is available is there one source that you would deem more reliable than another? In one instance I have a death in Longford in 1879 where the civil record gives the age as 48 but the parish record gives it as 55. My hunch in this case is that the parish record might be more reliable as the priest would have had access to baptismal records [since destroyed!] whereas whoever registered the death would only have been reliant on their notion of how old the person was. In another instance I have a ..read more

Been like that for the last few weeks ..read more

Trying to find grandmother's birth date

Hi. I'm trying to find the birth date (specifically year) for my deceased grandmother. My mam doesn't know it and was curious to find it. I signed up for the free trial for ancestry and found a lot of info for her side of the family but no birth register. I know there was some story about her aunt being given the money to go register the baby but she was an alcoholic and instead went to the pub which caused problems 60 years later when my grandmother went to get a passport for the first time. Whether it's true or not is another story. What other resources are there that could help? Thanks for ..read more
