I am searching for Mary Twyford as I believe I may be related to her. She was born in Dublin I believe 1956 ish. Her mother and father (Mary and Bill) have passed and her brother also Michael July 15 2006.   I believe she never married and so has same last name. I understand she is still in the area, but perhaps in Wicklow. Any help would be lovely.

Hi Darren,

It's lovely to hear that you are trying to find possible relatives here on the island of Ireland!

Civil registration was introduced in Ireland in 1864 and is when we started seeing the formal registration of births, marriages, adoptions and deaths. These records have been kept at the General Register Office of Ireland(GRO), to this day through the Irish Genealogy website.

As the record is quite recent and hopefully she may be still alive, there are restrictions on records being available. I would suggest trying the Dublin City Council Family History pages too as a helpful resource to try.

I'm sure our Industry partners and fellow members will have some advice also.

We hope this helps get you started!

Hi Darren, 

I'd love to see what I can do to point you in the right direction! :) As Martin mentioned above, all of the records since 1864 have been kept at the General Register Office of Ireland (GRO). Have you reached out to them directly yet? They might be able to tell you more. 
There is a helpful search option on the Irish Genealogy page where you can browse through the Civil records yourself. 

You are also more than welcome to contact an organization called Ireland Reaching Out, where great volunteers attempt to connect Irish descendants to their roots, through reverse genealogical research.  

I hope this was helpful, and keep us posted on your findings!
