My 2 times great grand father Martin J Dillon was born July 15 1835 in Ireland.  Married a Mary T A'Hearn  (born 8/1840). I Think they were married in Limerick County.  Martin may have immigrated about 1860 and Mary about 1864. First census records put them in Ohio in 1870.  I am not able to find a way to get to Ireland records.  Any good ideas on how to look info in Ireland for free.  How do you look for what ship and port they came in on.

Almost all the sites listed on Sources for Ireland by Province and County are free. but without a better location in Ireland, it's going to be very hard.

My GGG Grandmother Mary Leo was the daughter of Patrick Leo and Mary Dillane from the Fedamore district of Limerick. (early 19th century- see Leo-78)   Go to this website for original source material:

htpps://www.registers.nli.ie  It's mostly in Latin and the script is hard to read, but it has been a great resource for me.

Here's the URL for Mary Leo's baptism:

go to the main website before you enter the above or else you'll get an error message.
Thank you will try this.
