In Reply to: Jack O'Shaughnessy m. Johana Carew by Rolando de A. of 339

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 county, 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).

Tullamain is in Co. Tipperary.

For Johan(na) Carew B 1864 (exact) in Co. Tipperary with the father's forename unknown, I found 1 rcd in Tullamain civil parish. The father's forename was Jeremiah.

Possible siblings to Johana are Margaret 1864. Note - siblings B prior to 1864 would be listed in a RC parish. I don't know what this parish is named.

For Jack Shaughnessy, there are none with this forename in the current database. Jack was usually a nickname for John. For John Shaughnessy, B 1862 +/- 4 yrs somewhere in Ireland with the father's forename unknown, I found 68 rcds with 4 in Tipperary.

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.
