Cobain Surname

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Marion Cobain Tetrault and in these pages I will document the information I uncover as I research the background and origin of the Cobain surname.

It is very difficult to trace your Irish family history prior to 1850 through the General Records Office due to a fire in the Public Record Office of Ireland in 1922.

“The most significant losses from the 1922 Ireland Public Record Office fire were the 19th-century census returns, the Church of Ireland parish registers, and the testamentary collections. . . State registration of non-Catholic marriages began in Ireland in 1845. All births, deaths and marriages have been registered in Ireland since 1864.”
