You don't give me DOB or DOM with which to work. I have to guess.

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 Thomas Finnegan M 1863 +/- 1 yr somewhere in Ireland, I found 2 rcd: 2-1862 Louth, 1862 Cavan, 1862 Armagh, 1863 Meath and 1863 Armagh.

For Bri(dget) O'Neill M ditto, I found 34 rcds. Yr/cnty correlations exist for 1862 Armagh, and 1862 Louth. However, none of these matched at the parish level. Suggest you experiment with a different range of dates.

Their rcds may not be in this database. You may want to wait until it is more complete.

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.
