Many other records give a birthplace, especially those of servicemen. Your ancestor may have been a soldier. If some children were born in Ireland before the parents came over then their birth places may be recorded in other types of employment records: teaching, police, coastguards etc
We hope that many of you will find this project of real interest and wish to participate. If you have any questions please contact our Group Administrator, Elizabeth O'Donoghue at email@example.com.
