Edward Garagan was my great-grandfather. He was in Halifax Nova Scotia with the Royal Irish Rifles from about 1883 to 1886, married Louisa Rogers, had 2 children, and was sent to Alexandria Egypt to take part in the British/Sudan War. He died there c. 1888. The family has been unsuccessful in locating information about him. He has a connection with Nenagh and had a sister in Dublin, Margaret O'Meara. Edward's son, Frederick William Garagan, had a family of 12 boys, the offspring of which are scattered across Canada and the United States. Any assistance would be appreciated.

Hi Dennis! Welcome to the forum. :)

Civil registration as we know it wasn't introduced in Ireland until 1864,before that time birth certificates, marriage certificates and burial records were kept in the local parish churches.

Nenagh is a county town of Tipperary and has three record offices. You can also have a look on the FamilySearch database, it contains the Irish Civil Records index of births, deaths and marriages from 1845-1958.

You can find a few handy tips in this thread too. I hope this helps!
