How to find a birth in Barony, Lanarkshire 1828 -1830
Have tried all the main big family history sites, even paid a researcher who did find my Gt Grandfather, who on enlisting 1853, stated his age as 24.5, and he was born in Barony, Lanarkshire. I cannot find his birth ANYWHERE.
Family story passed down the generations implied he came from Waterford area. Even went there, every other grave is a Michael Power! I do know some of his Military background, in India, and that his Father was a Michael Power also. He married a Mary Ann Carroll in India 11 June 1862, St Thomas Mount. Haven't even started with Mary Ann as her birth is vague, 1847 but her father is a John Carroll.
Michael & Mary Ann had 3 children in India, Charles 1865 -1868, Michael 1867-1931 and Agnes who became a Nun, 1872
Any bright ideas will be gratefully received.
