Hello Rex:

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 Hugh Joseph Neary B 1889 (exact), Co. Armagh, with the father's forename unknown, I found 1 rcd in Loughgilly parish. This is an exact match. It is highly likely to be for this individual. Father's forename was Peter. A view of the detailed rcd SHOULD reveal both parent's names and other details.

For Peter Neary M 1885 +/- 4 yrs, somewhere in Ireland, I found 3 rcds: 2-1881 Roscommon, and 1-1883 Cavan. The mother's name found above will validate/invalidate these 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.
