Nixon

Meath, Finglas and Portmarnock


This is the raw data report for 7 generations of the Nixon’s and Sheedy’s straight from the GRAMPS system I maintain.

Gramps is an acronym for Genealogical Research and Analysis Management Programming System. Its free, feature rich, intuitive and open-source and having tried multiple systems I highly recommend it. I have published this information for other researchers who may get a positive hit from their internet search engine.

Note for researchers: If a year is “calculated” or “estimated” it means the primary data source states the persons age at a specific point in time. (e.g) 1901 Census states a person is 25 then the calculated birth date is 1876.In my experience many people lied or guessed their age when asked by officials therefore if you are seeking out actual birth, baptism, marriage or death certificates of an individual you should take this into account
