In Reply to: Searching for info re. Simon Fogarty by Paul Fogarty of 731

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 parish, 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 Simon Fogarty B 1840 +/- 4 yrs in Limerick or Cork with the father's forename unknown, I found 1 rcd in 1839 Limerick. Father's name was Timothy.

For his Civil War service rcds contact the following:

National Personnel Records Center
Military Personnel Records
9700 Page Avenue
St. Louis, MO 63132-5100

Google the site's name. Get to its webpage. Download an info request form. Complete form and send it with requisite payment to the address indicated.

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.
