I am searching for informationabout my Grandmoth's birth details her name is Sophia Kavanagh and she was born around 1890 in Wicklow. She had 4 sisters and lived in the town of Wicklow.

I have tried doing online searches and they seem to come up bland, can anyone let me know as to where I should look or does anyone have any information?

This information is from the 1911 census, and it is my Grandmother's family. What I need now is getting proof of her date and place of birth as different documents have different years for her birth. The census indicates that she was born in 1889 other documents indicate that she was born in either 1890 or 1892.

This information is confusing, my mother tells me that her mother's birthday was 2 December (Sophia Kavanagh) and she thinks that the year is 1890 though this she is not sure of and all the documentation we have seems to have different years.

The 1911 census indicates that her birth year was 2889 but the passenger list records from the ship indicate that her birth year was 1892.

The other information that you have included seems to fit as this is the family link. One of my cousins in Ireleand has been looking for Sophia Kavanagh's birth certificate but has not had any luck in finding it do you have any ideas?
