I searched 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 Bridget Tallon B 1820 in Co. Meath with a father named James, I found 1 B rcd.
For James Tallon B 1817 ditto, I found 1 B rcd.
For John Tallon B 1812 ditto, I found 1 B rcd.
For George Tallon B 1807 ditto, I found 1 B rcd.
For James Tallon M 1803 +/- 1 yr in Co. Meath, I found couldn't find earlier 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.
