I will be glad to know more about my great grandmother, Catherine Tobin.
I found this information:
Name: Catherine Tobin
Birth Date: 22 Jun 1869
Birth Place: Newtownbarry, Wex, Ireland
Baptism Place: Newtownbarry, Wex, Ireland
Father's Name: Michael Tobin
Mother's Name: Bridget Dempsey
FHL Film Number: 101188
Source Information: Ancestry.com. Ireland, Select Births and Baptisms, 1620-1911 [database on-line]. Provo, UT: Ancestry.com Operations, Inc., 2011.
Original data: Ireland Births and Baptisms, 1620–1911. Index. Salt Lake City, Utah: Family Search.
I would like to know why she emigrated to Argentina, at what age did when she leave Ireland. If she still have family in Ireland. And any other information that will enable me learn more about my great-grandmother, who I did not get a chance to meet.
Thanks in advance.
