Hi Jacqueline:

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 Joseph Walker B ????, Co. Antrim, with the father's forename unknown, the earliest B rcd is for 1833.

For Mary McAuliffe B ???? somewhere in Ireland with a father forenamed Maurice, I found 7 rcds: 1810 Cork, 1845 Cork, 2-1856 Cork, 1875 Limerick, and 2-1877 Cork. One of these MAY be for your ancestor - no guarantee. You will need an exact DOB, parent(s) name(s), and/or placename(s) to pick which, if any, is the right one. Since you know the mother's name, this may be enough to validate/invalidate the rcds.

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.
