Looking for the birth records of Michael Lynam, b. 1849-1851 in Dublin.   Strong DNA results provide the reason to believe his parents, or aunt and uncle, were Michael Lynam of Balbriggan and Maria/Mary Smart of Donabate.    Have located about 6-7 siblings (or cousins) from the Church Parish records of the two parishes, children of Maria and Michael, but no records of the birth of my great grandfather Michael.

    I couldn't find a marriage record of the parents in any year or county

    This is the only sibling from roots:

    www.irishgenealogy.ie/ is good for Dublin records in case you haven't tried there.

    I looked at the subscription site Roots Ireland as Col suggested and found four baptismal records for children of Michael and Maria/Mary Smart. The first two were in Donabate parish and the last two in Balbriggan so obviously they moved north at some point. Catherine 1844 Mary 1845 Patrick 1860 Elizabeth 1864

    There is a 15 year gap between Mary and Patrick so in addition to Michael there were likely other children. I also scanned the Donabate parish register from 1847-1852 with no success.The Balbriggan register has a index to their register and the only baptisms for children of Michael Lynam and Maria Smart were the forementioned Patrick and Elizabeth. There are no records in Dublin city parishes.

    Any possiblility they went to England or Scotland between 1845-1860?
