Dear Eneclann customer,

Research Q&A

This newsletter Fiona Fitzsimons, Research Director at Eneclann answers Sheila Shanley’s question.

Hello Fiona – trying to find information on my great-grandfather, Christopher Leonard, born Meath 1863 – worked as a Wagon Fitter for Irish Railway, probably at Broadstone, Dublin – he is mentioned in 1911 Irish Census. Cannot get any trace in 1901 Census. I tried a couple of letters enclosing S.A.E to Irish Railway Association, plus e-mails, and didn’t get any reply. Would like to know more of him and his family – any advice greatly appreciated.

 If you’ve got a question you’d like to ask Fiona, post it on our Facebook page or send it to us at marketing@localhost
