Many thanks for your help,the info will keep me busy for a bit. The Gilbert family in Bunclody is related but so far not interested in family history. The Daniel that I am tracking had at least 6 children, 2 born in London after 1827 so the others were born in Wexford, John 1820, Mary 1823 and 2 other girls. The family must have been religious (RC) as 2 sons became priests and 2 daughters became nuns. John (priest) went to Liverpool to help in the typhus outbreak and as a result died there in 1847. Mary married John Butterworth in London and died there, however I am would like to get birth certificates for John and Mary. How can I get the address of the RC churchs in and around Bunclody and I will write to the priests to see if its possible to check records.
