Joseph was born 29/2/1892 in 40 New St. Dublin. The family seemed to have been in the St. Nicholas (without) parish - his father's baptism is on record there. Any ideas on where a record might be?

    Your Joseph was born at the end of Feb. 1892, and this Joseph was baptized 1 March. Do you know the parents’ names? Could this be him?

  • Martin,

    I just looked at the civil records and see that your Joseph was the child of Peter Neville and his mother was called Downey. So that does not match the names above.

    When looking for the baptism, keep in mind that the date may PRECEDE the birth date on the civil registration.  People had to register a child's birth within a certain period of time or pay a fine. In order to skip the fine, they lied about the birth date. So sometimes a baptism date comes before the birth date. 

    Good luck.
