I am looking for William Lawrence, bc1853. His parents were William Lawrence and Fanny nee Connor. In 1878 he immigrated to New Zealand, and I have a lot of history from there. The problem is javascript:emoticon('Rolling Eyes')on his shipping papers it says he came from Derry. On his marriage certificate it says he was born in County Tyronne. In another document he came from County Cavan.
Since I was born in New Zealand and have never been ti Northern Ireland, I dont know where these places are in relation to each other, or how to look for further info.
Oh, yes, he was a farmer and his father also.
Any help would be great.
Thanks

Ireland is actually a small country, with 26 Counties, 6 in the North and 16 in the South.
So Derry/Londonderry in the North is very close to Co Tyrone etc in what is now Northern Ireland, and Co Cavan which is North West of Dublin, the South has a border with Co Fermanagh which has a border with Co Tyrone. These counties are rural/farm land and people moved around a bit for work etc, and depending on religion ie Catholic or Protestant met and married.
eg I have relatives who were Protestants in Co Cavan who came to Co Derry to work and settled there.
The ' free' Census of Ireland might help you, I went to school in Belfast with someone called 'Lawrence ' so you never know who you might come across.

Good luck you will find out lots of info, from the 1901 and 1911 census's of Ireland which was one country up until 1922 as well as churches, Church of Ireland [Anglican],Rroman Catholic, Presbyterian etc.
Apologies for my maths in earlier note , 6 counties in 'the north', ie Northern Ireland and 20 counties in 'the south' ie Eire.
Don't forget you can also ask this site for professional genealogical help.
