There is some real gold on the old Dublin clubs thread.
Just wondering has anyone ever chased up their own family history or even that of where they live. I always thought the road where I was born and reared was built in 1913 but when the 1911 census came online the road was there - and the house number. It made for fascinating reading. Presbyterian family - Dad 31, Mum 30 and daughter … 14!! … and a 16 year old Roman Catholic servant girl completed the household. But when you look at the actual completed form - which the sanitary engineer husband seems to have made a balls of - the baby appears to be 1 and 3/4!
There were lots of English people on the road - many working in the GPO! Lots of Irish servant girls too. We even had Scottish Episcopalians! Hugely interesting reading.
