Re: Stone Bridge Presbyterian Church & Irish place names

To find old Irish place names from "what sounds like..." (such as "Anyah"), go to the wonderful SeanRuad townland-search site: http://www.seanruad.com/

Type in the whole town/village name or just the first few letters and scan down the list of results to find the best matches. For example, I found a Co. Tyrone village name that in our ancestors' old 1830s handwriting looked like "Ballyquilley" -- but turned out to be "Ballygawley."

Good luck with your research,
Annie
