My wife and I recently returned from Ireland where we did some research and visited her relatives in Dublin and Co. Sligo, see my recently posted message above.
We went down to the Register's Office in Dublin where they have an index for all birth, marriages and deaths for the Republic of Ireland after 1864. As I mentioned in my message most of those that spell their name Kilcullen came out of Co. Sligo and are registered in the Union of Dromore West.
Research at the Register's Office is time consuming and we didn't get as much done as we had hoped. Some of the early births, marriages and deaths are indexed and only reference a vol. number and page, and once you locate an individual you have to fill out a request and hand it in to the receptionist and if she has the time she will get a microfilm copy of the record, very time consuming.
The index of birth records for the early part of the twentieth century contain a little more information and enough if the maiden name of the mother is known. The index lists the surname, child's first name, mother's maiden name and child's date of birth and place where birth is registered and vol. and page numbers.
And they only let out indexes for a five year period at a time. It so happened that while looking for my wife's Flynns the Kilcullens were in the same volume and because there were only about six or ten Kilcullens born at those particular years we copied down everyone in case some proved to be related (and as we found out from my mother-in-law, some were related).
I did find some Kilcullens whose mother had the maiden name of Kivlehan and some with similar mother's maiden names. I will get them together and send them. Because my wife and her sister had copied them down I have to interpret their handwriting but I do believe some may be who you are looking for.
