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 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 Michael Mccaffery B 1843 (exact) somewhere in Ireland with the father's forename unknown, I found 1 rcd in Co. Cavan. Father's name was Patrick.
For Ellen McBride B 1834 ditto, I found 0 B rcds. The closest is for 1836, Co. Cavan. However, it is in a parish different than that for Michael.
For Susan McBride B 1841 (exact) ditto, I found 0 rcds. The closest are 1838 Tyrone, 1845 Kilkenny, and 1845 Tyrone. None of these seem to fit your criteria.
For Susan McBride M 1862 +/- 4 yrs somewhere in Ireland, I found 2 rcds in Co. Down.
For Michael McCaffery M ditto, I found no matching M 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.
