In Reply to: Timothy and Ellen Canty, Cork, Ire. by Noreen Frank Poole of 468

Hi Noreen:

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 Ellen Canty B 1841 (exact), Co. Cork, with a father forenamed Tim(othy), I found 1 rcd, Ballymacoda-Ladysbridge RC parish. This is very likely to be for your ancestor. A view of the detailed rcd SHOULD show the mother's name and remove all doubt.

For Tim(othy) Canty M 1836 +/- 4 yrs, Co. Cork, I found 0 rcds within a relevant range. It may be that the rcd didn't survive, or hasn't been transcribed yet. Suggest you wait until the database is more complete.

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.
