Reply To: Researching the Dolan family of Co. Roscommon


Hi Rick If James and Sarah married in Scotland have you got their marriage record? Scottish records are quite good and should at least furnish you with both father and mothers’ names and occupations for the bride and groom. You can order the record online at
If the couple were not well off, then it may be worth checking the Poor Law records to see if either of them or their children claimed for assistance. Glasgow Poor Law records can be very detailed and are often the key to pinpointing exactly where in Ireland someone was from. Unfortunately these are not online but need to be consulted in person at the Mitchell Library in Glasgow.


We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
