In Reply to: JUST SOME INFORMATION NEEDED !!! PLEASE by Rich Scully of 727

Hello Rich:

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 Thomas Doyle M 1859 +/- 4 yrs somewhere in Ireland, I found 36 rcds - too many to summarize here.

For Thomas Doyle B 1835 ditto, with the father's forename unknown, I found 149 rcds - again, too many.

For Tho(mas) Scully B 1824 +/- 4 yrs somewhere in Ireland with the father's forename unknown, I found 10 rcds: 1820 TIP, 1821 gal, 2-1822 KIL, 1825 DUB, 1825 CRK, 1826 TIP, 1827 KID, and 2-1828 CRK.

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.
