Keating - James & William - (County Dublin, Baile Atha Cliath, DUB, (Province of Leinster, Laighin) - County Dublin)
These brothers came to New Zealand in about 1863. The only reference we have to Dublin is that James uses Dublin on all the certificates we have - marriage, births of his children, and death. On James death certificate his parents are given as Elizabeth and James with his father's occupation given as Merchant. He died in an accident and we don't know whether his wife had accurate information about him in Ireland.The fact that both James and William obtained miner's rights at the same time makes us assume that they are brothers.

KOHLER, O'DELL in Howth - (County Dublin, Baile Atha Cliath, DUB, (Province of Leinster, Laighin) - County Dublin)
I am searching for cemetery and death details on Charles Kohler, my G G G G Grandad, who was a tailor in Howth and Dublin central. He is on record from 1848 to 1860 then disappears! My Dad has always believed our ancestry to have been Jewish but the Kohlers aren't on any Irish/Jewish records. Can anyone help please? Oddly, one of Charles' sons, Charles junior, married an Anne ODELL or O'DELL in a Church of Ireland ceremony at St Peters in 1853.

TRINITY COLLEGE LOOK UP PLEASE! - (County Dublin, Baile Atha Cliath, DUB, (Province of Leinster, Laighin) - County Dublin)
My G G G G Grandad, Charles Kohler, was apparently at Trinity College in Dublin. He became a merchant regimental tailor with businesses or homes in Sackville Street, Harbour Court (both in Howth),College Green, Dublin, Howth Lodge (about which I can find nothing!) and in London. I can't find when or where he was born or his parents but have been told that this might be shown on his Trinity College records. He is on the registers in Ireland variously from 1848 to 1860 and because he used the .. style dots known as the umlaut over the "O" in the spelling of Kohler it is believed he may have been a German speaker and thus possibly not have been in Ireland too long prior to the time on which he showed up on record. Therefore it would be especially helpful to find his date of birth or his parents names... or anything else! It's said in the family that he was Jewish but I have no evidence to support this. Does anyone have access to the Trinity alumni archives please? I am in County Durham, England, and simply can't afford to purchase them or visit Dublin myself as much as I would dearly love to. Thank you so much.
