Hi Marilyn,

Try using Roots Ireland  http://www.rootsireland.ie/

for your search there are only 99 Michael Murphy birth records in an all county Ireland seacrh for the year 1800 plus or minus 5 years. If you have any more information regarding him then that could narrow the search considerably.

what is his date of birth?

Thanks Nicholas for responding.

I do not have an exact date of birth, as I thought it would be impossible to

get the correct certificate from Ireland with just his name, knowing how many

Murphys there are in Ireland.

He s on the 1840, 50, English Census, easy to pick up as his wife's name is

Rhoda and hs firstborn John William..

I haven't got access to the census records  at the moment, but I tend to think he

was born about 1801.

Is that any help ?
