  • Hi,

    Thank you for your message.

    As they were married in 1866 there should be a civil record of Richard and Annie?s marriage as civil registration became compulsory in 1864. Civil records are available from the General Register?s Office. Here are their contact details:

    Alternatively, you could try looking in the parish records. Most Catholic records are held locally so you may need to write to the local parish priest for possible assistance. One website that you may find useful is the Irish Times where they give an overview of what records are available in specific parishes. It also shows you where copies of the records are available. For Inver parish, follow this link:
