Question:  Family tradition states my ancestor's father was a dentist in Dublin, Ireland in the 1840's.  Her name was Bridge Noland, and her father was a Thomas according to her death record.  Can you help be confirm if there was such a dentist?

 

Answer:  I am happy to report that an 1842 directory for Dublin, Ireland does list dentists.  In fact this very same directory has a Thomas Noland living at 121 Abbey Street, Upper in Dublin.  To see this page go online to: http://www.failteromhat.com/dublin/medical/dentist.pdf  The directory is located on the popular Irish genealogical website www.failteromhat.com is Pettigrew and Oulton's Dublin Almanac 1842.
