Hi, I am stuck with my Irish roots. I can see a number of the Toomey Family in Dublin townsend/Gloucester Street John 1865 - 1904 married Margaret Carroll. Children Mary Chrsitina 1899 - 1979, John (Jack) 1896 - 1952, Kathleen ?, Elizabeth 1897 - ?. Mary Christina is my grandma. Happy to make contacts. Phil.

Have you seen the 2 baptisms of Mary Christina & Elizabeth Toomey on irishgenealogy.ie? http://churchrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/search.

Can't see the family in Dublin on either the 1901 or 1911 censuses. Did they emigrate?

Hi, Thanks for the reply. I have some indexes from Ancestry suggesting that Mary Christina was born in Baltinglass in 1899. Yes some of them did emigrate to UK but some stayed behind and are still there. John Toomey died in 1904 and Margaret remarried to William Kavanagh in 1922 whilst the children were still in Ireland.

This is what I find in the Irish site.

Name ELIZABETH TOOMEY
Date of Birth N/R N/R 1897
Address 25 TOWNSEND ST
Father JOHN TOOMEY
Mother MARGARET CARROLL

Name MARY CHRISTINA TOOMEY
Date of Birth N/R N/R 1898
Address 3 GLOUCESTER STREET
Father JOHN TOOMEY
Mother MARGARET CARROLL

It is possible that these are the baptism of the parents - but I am not sure.

Name JOHN TOOMEY
Date of Birth N/R N/R 1864
Address 65 TOWNSEND ST
Father GEORGE TOOMEY
Mother FANNY HEANY

Name MARGARET CARROLL
Date of Birth 29 August 1873
Address 26 STAFFORD ST
Father JAMES CARROLL
Mother JANE BRENNAN

Regards, Phil.

Hi again

This looks like the marrige details for John Toomey (same for Margaret Carroll, so a very likely match):

Ireland, Civil Registration Marriages Index, 1845-1958
Name: John Toomey
Date of Registration: Apr-May-Jun 1896
Registration district: Dublin South
Volume: 2
Page Number: 651
FHL Film Number: 101258

You can purchase the record from gro.ireland, which will confirm fathers' names, professions, addresses, etc.

Happy hunting!
