Hello! Aftr a long search and a most interesting journey I recently obtained records for my Gt. Grandfather, John Waters, and these show he was born in the Parish of St.John,Waterford abt.1837. He married Jane Swift in Galway abt. 1853/4. He enlisted into the 40th Regiment of Foot abt. 1854 at Waterford. My grandfather, William Waters, was born in Adelaide in 1862 along with three other brothers. Children were also born in NZ, Melbourne, UK, Ireland and one born at sea going to India. I would now like to obtain birth cert. for John and marriage cert. for John and Jane, but am unsure how to go about this. Any help you can give me would be much appreciated. When John was discharged in 1877 his place of residence ws Manchester would Waters be a common name in the County of Waterford? How would I find out about John's siblings?
