In Reply to: Edmond Breen /Mary Kennedy M Jan 3rd 1821 Pallasgreen Co Limerick by seamus mc quillan of 1283

Hello Seamus:

I research the Irish Family History Foundation's database. It contains 12,800,000 surviving rcds for abt 70% of Irish counties. Rcds are increasingly sparse B4 1840, rare B4 1800. Cos. Donegal and Derry were recently added to the database.

Note 1 - Without a KNOWN county, the chance of an ancestor's rcds NOT being in this database is AT LEAST 30%.

Note 2 - Only 1/2 of Co. Cork's rcds are in this database.

Note 3 - The RC church kept control over most parish rcds from Tipperary (north). These are ONLY available thru the Tipperary Family History Research center at a substantial fee (regardless of outcome).

For Edmond Breen M 1821 +/- 2 yrs, Co. Limerick, with the father's forename unknown, I found 1 rcd in 1821. However, the rcd is in Hospital and Herbertstown RC parish, not Pallasgrean & Templebredon as asserted in your post. B rcds for the former date from 1810, for the latter 1801. I find this puzzling since you say the data is verified.

For the listed offspring, not all (examples: Alice and Catherine) have a father named Edmond.

Google the Foundation's name to lead you to this database. Register, opt to be notified as rcds are added and browse. Pls post your search results to my genforum msg.

Hope this helps. Good luck.
