I research the Irish Family History Foundation's database. It contains 12,700,000 surviving rcds for abt 70% 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 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 Mary Canty B 1855 +/- 1 yr somewhere in Ireland with the father's forename unknown, I found 1 rcd 1855 Co. Cork, Cobh RC parish. Father's forename was Michael. This date doesn't correlate with the mother's immigration date of 1850-1852.
For Michael Canty M 1851 +/- 4 yrs, Co. Cork, I found 0 rcds. The closest date was 1843.
For Ellen Canty B 1826 +/- 1 yr somewhere in Ireland with the father's forename unknown, I found 1 rcd in 1825, Co. Cork, Coachford RC parish. Father's forename was Jeremiah.
For Jere(miah) Canty M 1822 +/- 4 yrs somewhere in Ireland, I found 0 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.
