    Thanks Elwyn,

    I do have all of that information and have traced the Curtin family backwards.
    It's going forwards that I have no further info on Cornelius Curtin, & Mary Ellen Fitzgerald.

    Did they have any children and where did they end up living?

    Teresa,

    On-line death records run up to 1965 but I donít see Cornelius in those. So either he died after 1965 or had left Ireland.

    Thereís 2 Cornelius Curtin births in Dublin (1940 & 1941) and 8 Mary Curtin births (1944 Ė 1956). Depending on your level of interest you could investigate them. Youíd need to get copies from Roscommon at Ä4 each, as recent birth certificates arenít on-line.

    Glasnevin Cemetery has a Cornelius Curtin burial in 1989 aged 77. He had a Dublin 7 address. You can pay to view the details. If itís the right man then you could search National Archives for a will. (Wills for 1989 are not on-line so far as I am aware). His death certificate will tell you whether Mary Ellen was still alive at that date, so you'll know which direction to search for her death.
