I have researched a record of my grandmother’s baptism on 28th December 1894 in Danesfort and the address is given as Grange
I would like to get a copy of this if possible and also there doesn’t seem to be a birth record of her
Any help and advice gratefully received

  • The subscription site Roots Ireland has a transcription record of a birth of a Catherine Slattery on January 25 1895. No father was shown and the mother was Bridget Slattery. They lived in Grange. There was an annotation that a Johanna Burke registered the birth on March 25th.

    Parents were required to register a birth within 30 days or they would be fined. To avoid a fine, parents gave a later date as the birth date to avoid the fine. I think that would explain why the baptism was in late December but register as aJanuary date.

    Unfortunately when I searched the free site   I could not locate the actual record.

    You asked about a copy of the baptismal record. The parish register for 1894 is not online. If you wanted a baptismal certificate, you would need to write to the church.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

  • Hello Roger
    Thanks for your reply. The parish in Danesfort Co. Kilkenny have have located the baptismal record and are sending it on. It’s under Kate Slattery with a mother of the same name and no father noted. She was definitely born on 24th December 1894 as we have her death certificate. It’s just the birth certificate we are having problems locating. Her marriage certificate names her as Kate and death certificate as Katherine.
    I’ve ordered one online and hopefully they may find it now they have more specific places and dates. Thanks for your help

    If you get a chance, let me know what the authorities tell you about the birth record.
