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 Cat(herine) Scully B 1867 +/- 4 yrs somewhere in Ireland with the father's forename unknown, I found 9 rcds: 1866 Galway, 1866 Tipperary, 2-1867 Galway, 1867 Tipperary, 1867 Limerick, 1868 Meath, 1868 Galway, and 1868 Cork. You will need an exact DOB, parent(s) name(s), and/or placename to identify which, if any, is for your ancestor.

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.
