I have completed research into my family history as far back

Customer Question

I have completed research into my family history as far back as 1860.s when my great grandparents Thomas Brown and Ann Balentine arrived in LIverpool.I have been told they came from Waterford/Wexford but All I can find is a Brick wall. He D. 1888 and She 1910 in Manchester,Lancs
JA: I did a little digging into my family history: we have a lot of dead eccentric Brits in our family tree. I hope you find some fascinating characters in yours. Is there anything else the Genealogist should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: I only know from a second hand message in the Family that they came from Waterford or Wexford in Ireland. All the Census records from 1871 until they passed over, plus the family stories record their place of birth as 'Ireland'

Hello there,

I have searched all Ireland records for an Ann Ballentine baptism and a marriage to Thomas Brown.

No records turn up in Ireland.
