Where was my great-great grandmother born

+4 votes
Hi all,

I am fairly new here and am extremely interested in genealogy. However, recently I have run into a bit of an issue. I don't know when E. Mulligan was born let alone where in Ireland she was born. All I have found thus far with the use of other websites was 2 birth certificates one for my great grandma and the other my great-great aunt and one marriage certificate. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks !!!

I understand that there isn't much information to be worked with, but, this is all I know. Other than the name of her two children and her husband.

I found a FamilySearch profile for her listing a birthdate of 12 Oct 1874 in An Caisleán Riabhach, County Roscommon. Links to birth records can be found here: https://www.familysearch.org/tree/person/research-help/M38T-333. The names match but definitely check it it’s other information you have (maybe immigration records).

I have already found all of those records, but, thanks anyways. I am looking for her birth certificate and such. I understand that it says 1882 but that is only an estimate and I need something more concrete for my research.

Using Lizzie's Father's and mother's name from that I came up with

Residents of a house 17 in Lissydaly (Artagh North, Roscommon)

Surname Forename Age Sex Relation to head Religion
Mulligan John 65 Male Head of Family R Catholic
Mulligan Bridget 30 Female Wife R Catholic
Mulligan Lizzie 20 Female Daughter R Catholic
Mulligan Rose 18 Female Daughter R Catholic
Mulligan Katie 16 Female Daughter R Catholic
Mulligan John 13 Male Son R Catholic


Because the birth date of Bridget doesn't seem correct, You may need to search some of the Church records. You can find links to rhem at Space:Sources-Ireland-Province-County

Have you found the marriage record for John Mulligan and Bridget Carney? Irishgenealogy has a record that could be your pair - married February 10 1868, Castlecrea, Co. Mayo. You can see the full image. Fathers are Patrick Mulligan and Michael Carney.

There is also a birth record for Eliza Mulligan in the same parish, daughter of John Mulligan and Bridget Carney, born October 12, 1874 in Creevey, Co. Mayo. You’ll probably be able to find her siblings records here too as her father is listed as a landholder on both records.
