>> I have discovered that my great grandparents were married in
Armaghbrague, Armagh, Ireland. Does anyone know where I could look on a
map of Ireland to find the location of Armaghbrague and whether it is a
town,etc.? An Irish friend thinks that it is near the border between
the north & south of Ireland. Is there anywhere in Ireland that I could
write to obtain a certificate of their marriage held in 1845. <<
I cannot see Armaghbrague Co Armagh in my Gazeteer of Ireland. But it
may have been a hamlet or district of the city of Armagh itself.
Co Armagh is in Northern Ireland, part of the United Kingdom. Its
southern border is part of the border with the Republic of Ireland. The
public records are in the Public Record Office, Northern Ireland in
However, civil registration of births, marriage and deaths in all of
Ireland (then wholly under British administration) did not begin until
1864. So you will have to identify the place and church and then find
where the parish registers were archived. There were different parishes
for Roman catholic and Protestant people.
Yours aye, Iain
