In Reply to: John Fagan b. 1815 in Ireland - in Liverpool in 1851 by Rick Kasparek of 1703

Hello Rick:

I research the Irish Family History Foundation's database. It contains 12,000,000 surviving rcds for abt 65% of Irish counties. Rcds are increasingly sparse B4 1840, rare B4 1800.

Note 1 - Without a KNOWN county, the chance of an ancestor's rcds NOT being in this database is AT LEAST 35%.

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 John Fagan B 1815 +/- 4 yrs somewhere in Ireland with the father's forename unknown, I found 39 rcds - too many to summarize here.

For John Fagan M 1840 +/- 4 yrs somewhere in Ireland, I found 31 rcds - again, too many.

For Ann Cowan M ditto, I found 4 rcds: 1838 Westmeath, 1842 Dublin, 1843 Limerick, and 1843 Kildare. A comparison with those for John revealed no potential matches. Their rcds may be among those yet to be transcribed. Suggest you wait until they are. This may take time; be patient.

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.
