  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: Northern Ireland - BDMs

    Some on-line sites contain what is described as the indexes to births, deaths & marriages in Ireland 1845 to 1958.

  4. Famous Pinkerton Agent James McParland

    Is there anyone out there related to Pinkerton Agent James McParland? I believe he is related to my family, indirectly, possibly through his father Eneas McParland-Drumachee, Mullaghbrack.

    I've been trawling through the records of The Irish Family History Foundation for 7 children - born from 1879 to 1890. The birth records often also quote a baptism date a few days or weeks after the birth but there is often a later (by several years) baptism record. It seems that the first...

  18. Sticky: Research in Ireland

    The information on the Ancestry site describes the collection as deaths in Ireland from 1864 to 1958. However it is misleading. It does not include deaths in Northern Ireland from 1.1.1922 onwards. This is a topic that comes up time and time again and causes a lot of confusion. In my opinion they...
