Hello all!
The above named Christopher is my grandfather (paternal). For the past 20 or so years I've been trying to trace his date of birth and details of his parents, but to no great avail. What I do have is the following:
- 27 June 1902 at Westland Row Church, Dublin, married Julia Carty whose parents were Michael/John? & Kate of Clonmessan (?), Co. Meath. They had two children - Michael born March 1903 and Bridget born 1905. Julia died September 1907
- 24 May 1909 at the Pro Cathedral, Marlborough Street, Dublin married Elizabeth Timmins of Britain Place (father Michael) Both were "full age". Had children Christopher (Kit) born December 1910, Tommy born November 1911, Dermot born October 1913, John (MY FATHER!) born May 1919, Mary (May) born 1924, and Rosie born 1925?
- April 1, 1911 - CENSUS record found. Christopher's age then was listed as 39, meaning he was born c.1872
- 10 january 1935 - Christopher died. Age on cert. is 72, meaning he was born c.1863! So which is correct???

Christopher was a carpenter/joiner, as was his father Michael. His mother's name was Bridget.

I'm trying to find a DOB for Christopher, a marriage cert. for his parents so that I can get his mother's maiden name, or to find any relatives of Christopher's as my uncle Dermot, who is still alive, doesn't remember ever meeting an aunt or uncle or cousin!

Any help or leads much appreciated!!
