  • Hi Phil,

    The only record I could find on for the Tiernans was the baptism in Dublin in 1848 of Francis Xavier MacTiernan. Given that he was aged 62 in 1911 this is pretty close. There were often older versions and mispellings and transcription inaccuracies for this to be your man. The parish on the record is St Pauls Arran Quay RC. You would need to purchase the record to get the parents' names.

    It is frustrating that rootsireland had no record of his marriage to Bridget. 

    I checked on ancestry but there were other Tiernan family trees but none with Francis!

    Hello Phil,

    There is a Francis M Tiernan in my family tree, which I have attached.  I'm running into a dead end with my great great grandfather James Tiernan 1864-1910 born in Ireland and trying to see if by posting my tree so far someone might be able to help me.  There are a lot of James Tiernan's in the line.
