Reply To: Discussion of editorial on Civil Registers


I hate to add on to their project, but we really need to talk about nicknames on I.G.  They really need to be cross referenced with their surname. For example, I am researching Moriarty in Kerry. When the name is in the Killorglin records it is only Buoney or Caulea. No mention of Moriarty.  Connor from Beaufort Kerry is Gow (blacksmith), but other places that is an O’Sullivan name. Today I just found the name Blueman. When I googled it I found an obit for a Blueman Sullivan. Duna is another Moriarty nickname. I am working on an excel sheet of everything I come across but I think it needs to be a bigger project. Just with the Moriarty name, thousands of records are not showing up when you type in the surname. You have to know the nicknames.



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