Bit of a long shot this, but trying to track my ancestory in KINSALE CORK. Nana was MARY ELLEN FINN born 16th JUNE 1893. Her father's name was DANIEL FINN and they emigrated to WALES, NEWPORT in the early 1900'S ( I THINK)
In the Republic of Ireland, birth, marriage & death records are held by General Register Office Ireland (see http://www.groireland.ie for info). They have no online searching or ordering service available. All searching has to be done manually in GRO offices.
There are many good research agents with online ordering service available. See http://www.irishancestries.com for details. Agents can then do the manual searching for you.
It should be possible to get Mary Ellen Finns birth cert and her parents marriage cert and, if you are lucky, her parents birth records. No civil records exist for before 1860's.
