ACCURACY AND ASSUMPTIONS
Never assume the data in the record is absolutely true and correct. Many in Ireland, during the times we research, distrusted the Government (after all the Ireland Gov. was in Westminister, in Great Britan/UK, and was enforced and Administered from Dublin Castle by the Lord Ireland for Centuries), and mislead anyone who asked questions – others were vain and still others did not know)- still others might not want to tell anyone the information on Official Forms like the Census). Some got 7 years younger between the 1901 and 1911 Census (when they should have aged approximately ten years)! Bottom line most were forthright, others were evasive.
