Another request here from Alistair M - does anybody recognise Mary Ellen Ainscough as part of their line? I have a feeling she might be part of the Parbold line - so Mary can you help?

I came across your web site whilst researching my wife's family tree.
I attach a marriage certificate from 1899 for her grandmother, Mary Ainscough,
and wonder if she is part of your family tree.
Mary ( Ellen ) Mills nee Ainscough according to the UK 1911 Census was born in Dublin. Certainly my wife (Christines) parents visited Bray near Dublin to see relatives there.
I tried to find a birth certificate for Mary Ellen, but Irish censuses seem to all be unavailable.
Ireland is difficult - enemies of genealogists blew up lots of the records...... Try http://www.ancestry.co.uk/cs/uk/ireland first. Baptisms depending on the priest can be useful as well. Same website. http://www.genuki.org.uk/ Genuki is free and you may be able to find somebody who's already done it via the fora.
