Hughes family

Hi,

 

My name is Mary.   I am looking for a possible birth record of my great great grandfather Michael Hughes.  Born in 05-1836 or 05-1837.   County Mayo Letrim.   He married Julia Lynsky or Linsky.  She was born in 1832.   In County Mayo, Letrim.   Any help would be great.      

 

Thank You

Mary

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    Michael Hughes was/is a very common name in Ireland. Hughes and Lynskey are common names in Co. Mayo but not in Co. Leitrim. I searched on the subscription site Roots Ireland and there were no Michael Hughes baptismal records in Mayo in 1836-1837 but there was an 1836 record in Leitrim. See below. I don't believe this is for your Michael. ( We really need his parents names to confirm any record located). I also did not find marriage record for the couple.

    Any other rinformation. Children born In Ireland?

  • Hi,

    Thank you so much for trying.   I Really appreciate it.    Do you think when they came here to the US then my great great grandparents got married here?    

    But again thanks for trying.    

    Thank You

    Civil registration of RC marriages did not begin until 1864. So pre-1864 we rely on available church records. It is very possible they were married in Mayo but in a parish that no longer has reocrds back to that year.
