Hello Kathleen,

It's great to hear that you are researching your Irish roots. Hopefully, I can provide you with some information that will help you in your search.

Some helpful information to keep in mind during your research: Before 1864 records were kept in the form of church and parish records;
While some of these have regrettably been lost over the years, all the surviving records have been sorted into county-based genealogical centers.

In 1864 civil registration was introduced in Ireland, which 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.

Would you happen to know the year or location of your grandfather's birth? This information may help to narrow your search and shed more light on your Irish roots.

Regards,
Eoin
