In Reply to: James Mulholland abt 1800 from Ireland? by John Mulholland of 786

Hello John:

I research the Irish Family History Foundation's database. It contains 12,700,000 surviving rcds for abt 70% 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 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).

For David Mulholland M 1847 +/- 4 yrs, Co. Antrim, I found 2 rcds: 1845 and 1849.

For Hannah Bailey M ditto, I found 1 rcd in 1851. This is a NO match. They likely married elsewhere.

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.
