How I sympathise with you! I had the same problem myself and almost gave up after several years of going nowhere. However, I don't suggest you do that as there is always hope! After I'd exhausted my efforts with my "direct" maternal Irish line of ancestry, I began work on the siblings in the family. Not too long afterwards, by looking at census information, I found that one of these siblings had joined the Royal Navy in 1861. Very fortunately for me, he had put his place of birth as Greystones, Wicklow, which gave me a place to work on. To-date, I've not got much further as yet again, I can't seem to find any mention of him or his family in Greystones and I too am not quite sure where to look next. More and more information is coming online, which is great, and I know only too well how frustrating it can be - but don't give up - the information you need is out there and if you chip away at it, you will find it. Wish I could help further.
All the best and good luck

Hi everyone. I am new to the list and looking for ideas on how to get around not knowing the place name in Ireland to search for my family.
The information I know:
- the name of the husband and est. birth in 1832.
- the maiden name of his wife, her fathers name and her est birth in 1832.
- the name of their son who was born in Ireland around 1854.
- I am estimating they arrived in the U.S. around 1854-1855 because a child was born in New Jersey
28 Aug 1856
I've collected a lot of information on this family after their arrival in the U.S., but "Ireland" is always listed as place information.
Luckily, I think I have enough information to identify them in Ireland if I can ever locate them, but where do I start?
HELP!!!! - Thanks - Mary
