    Details of living - or potentially living - people are not normally allowed on the forum, but as you are searching on his behalf, it will be okay.

    If you have not done so already, the first place to start would be to get a copy of his birth certificate, which may be ordered from here.

    The references are:
    September quarter 1933
    Dublin South registration district
    Volume 2
    Page 514

    Another line of enquiry would be the Church. If he was put into their care, contacting the appropriate authority might shed some light on his background.

    Hi Stephen
    I guess you wont know if this is your father's birth name. If you do I think then you should get the birth certificate. Probably a better way is going down the DNA route. There is plenty of help out there if you are unsure how to do this. Good Luck in your searching. Dont give up if it's important to you.
