Hello Alice:

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).

Note 4 - Microfilms of parish church rcds are kept by the National Library of Ireland (NLI).

For Anthony Kelly B ????, Monasterevin RC parish, Co. Kildare, with the father's forename unknown, I found 2 rcds: 1838 and 1870. Father's respective forenames were Frank and Michael. You will need a more exact DOB, parent(s) name(s), and/or placename(s) to pick which, if either, is the correct one.

For Frank Kelly M 1837 +/- 1 yr, Co. Kildare, I found 1 potential rcd, 1838, Monasterevin RC parish.

For Mic(hael) Kelly M 1865 +/- 5 yrs, Co. Kildare, I found 7 rcds, with 2 (1861 and 1867) in Monasterevin.

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.
