My gg-grandfather was Denis Scanlan born aound 1836 in (I assume) Ireland. In Feb.1862 he married a Margaret Hegarty [Marriage of DIONYSIUS SCANLAN of N/R and MARGARITA HEGARTY of N/R on 8 February 1862] in the parochial parish of Aughadown .
In Jan. 1863 my g-grandfather, John Scanlan was born[Baptism of JOHN SCANLAN of HOLLY HILL on 11 January 1863] in the parochial parish of Aughadown. some of the civil records show the birth in Tullagh.
So my dilema is that I can not find a birth record for Denis or for Margaret. I checked with the Skibbereen Heritage Center and they [aslo] do not have a record for Denis.
Is it possible that Denis was born elsewhere? Can someone on the boards help me to find a [possible] different path for search?
