Thanks for posting - BUT, it's rubbish. I don't exist - ON THE CHURCH RECORDS !!! I was babtised, communioned, confirmed, and married in a church in Ireland, but the church records can't find me.

Bryno, this might be of interest (you might be worried if you DID find yourself!!)

WHAT CHURCH RECORDS ARE AVAILABLE ONLINE?

1. Transcripts of the baptism and marriage records of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Kerry to c. 1900 - this diocese includes parishes in western and north-western areas of Co. Cork.

2. Transcripts with record-images for all surviving nineteenth-century Church of Ireland marriage, baptism and burial records in Co. Kerry.

3. All Roman Catholic baptism, marriage and burial registers for Dublin City, some parishes in transcript only (to c. 1900), some transcripts with record-image (to c. 1880). The records of St. Paul's, Arran Quay, are not included. A transcript of its records can be found at http://dublinnorth.rootsireland.ie.

4. All surviving Church of Ireland baptism, marriage and burial registers for Dublin City, most of them transcripts with record-images to c. 1900.

5. All surviving Church of Ireland baptism, marriage and burial registers for Co. Carlow, transcripts with record-images to c. 1900.

6. All Roman Catholic baptism, marriage and burial registers (transcripts with record-images to c.1880) for the diocese of Cork and Ross, which covers the south and west of the county and Cork city. Some of the records of Cork city (for the parishes of St. Mary & St. Anne, St, Patrick's and Blackrock) are not online.

7. A small number of Presbyterian records relating to a congregation in Lucan, Co. Dublin (transcript only).

Work is progressing on the completion of the Co. Monaghan Roman Catholic records (Diocese of Clogher). Please refer to the update of progress section in this website for news of upcoming releases.

No results for my dad or grand dad either. We are figments of each others imagination.

well I'm really excited about this! As of now, it doesn't include the counties and timeframes I'm looking for (Kilkenny and Roscommon, in the mid 1800's) but I'm hopeful they will keep adding records. Thanks for sharing, I have bookmarked the link and will check back periodically to see what they've added!

just as a matter of interest... another ancestor was named Armstrong. I don't know what county they were from, but isn't this a more common name in Northern Ireland? They definitely emigrated from Ireland to the US between 1847 and 1850 based on an 1850 census record showing the youngest child born in Ireland!

For genealogy, you might try www.irelandxo.com. They have volunteers in each county (and now each parish, too, I think). It's also relatively new. Six months ago I received good personalized help specific to my ggggfather's location and family. They put me in contact with a distant relative so now we're planning an afternoon at his house.

I didn't try it yet...who knows what I might unearth..., but it's a good idea to bring the genealogy sources together online, even if the site needs tweaking:)
