Thank you for writing on the Community Forum and I am happy you are planning to come here with your daughter soon! 😄
I am delighted that you are interested in learning more about your ancestors who came from Ireland.
It looks like you've already done some research, but if you want to try looking for more information there are some resources on the Tourism Ireland website
that may be of help.
The best start is with a good paper trail of birth, marriage, and death certificates back as far as possible. 📜
Furthermore, 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), through the Irish Genealogy website, to this day.The Surname Website
by John Grenham could possibly help you find some more information and Find My Past
has a lovely website that may be of help too.
As for your trip next year with your daughter, have you already thought about an itinerary and what you'd like to do while on the island?
If you need some advice and inspiration, you can reply to this thread with your questions.
In the meantime, have a great day! ☘️
