Ireland, Civil Registration Indexes, 1845-1958; XXXXX XXXXX, Registration District Dublin South, married in 1963, Film #101249, Volume 5, Page 286, Digital Folder #4179382, Image #00019

The year is wrong - you say 1963 - please check .It should be 1863 at least

.

To prove the marriage of Margaret Frances Fern to XXXXX XXXXXph Bennett - I need to see the entry with Margaret Frances Fern's details of her marriage.

Can you also try and find the birth dates of Margaret Frances Fern (Cavan) and XXXXX XXXXXph Bennett. Margaret Frances Fern died in childberth in 1875 . Australia. I do not have any info on XXXXX XXXXXph Bennett.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.


I haven't had a reply from you re the last email I received from you re the marriage of XXXXX XXXXXph Bennett to Margaret Frances Fern.


.


Again to prove a marriage has taken place - both names must be located in the index for the same period with the same reference number.


I look forward to your reply re this possible marriage.


Kind regards Mignon

Expert:  Shirley replied 1 year ago.

Hello,

You are correct, the marriage date is 1863. Sorry for the typo.

Ireland, Civil Registration Indexes, 1845-1958, film #101583, volume #17, page #451, digital folder #4200215, image #00285 - XXXXX XXXXX died in Dublin South in 1867 at the age of 23. His estimated year of birth is 1844.

The only item I have located that shows XXXXX XXXXX and Margaret Fern were married is Maria's birth (Ireland, Births and Baptisms, 1620-1881) as it lists father's and mother's name.

Thank you,

Shirley

Hello Mignon,

 

Ireland, Civil Registration Indexes, 1845-1958; XXXXX XXXXX, Registration District Dublin South, married in 1963, Film #101249, Volume 5, Page 286, Digital Folder #4179382, Image #00019

Margaret is in Volume 17 on the same FHL Film, number 101249.

 

If you are still interested, I will see if I can locate a birth record for John and Margaret.

Thank you,

Shirley

Customer: replied 1 year ago.

Yes - I would like that very much. But I can't give you any more help re John Joseph Bennett.


I have a letter from John Joseph Benison of Sleive Russell.Cavan. Maria was receiving money from Benison in Australia. So I think Cavan was where Margaret was born, but I am not sure about John Joseph Bennett.


I appreciate your help. Please let me know if you need any more information.


Regards Mignon
