Re: Alexander and Jane Mitchell of Clady Beg, Kilclooney Parish, Armagh

In Reply to: Alexander and Jane Mitchell of Clady Beg, Kilclooney Parish, Armagh by Alinor Mathews of 624

I searched 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 parish, 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 Alexander Mitchell B 1800 in the database, there are 0 B rcds prior to 1827.

For the B/M of Alexander's offspring, rcds are likely in the database for post 1845 period.

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.
