I am trying to find out about James Rogan, born May 1846, in County Down, Ulster, Northern Ireland. He immigrated to America abt. 1870 and married Annie Ellen Hughs, born 1842 from Amaugh. His parents were Patrick Rogan, b. abt 1822, in County Down, Ulster, N. Ireland and his wife was Katie Smith, b. abt 1824, also from County Down, Ulster, N. Ireland. Any help will be appreciated as I haven't the foggiest where to look.

I am also tracing Irish relatives. Civil registration of birth, marriages and deaths in Ireland started in 1864. From this date you can send for a certificate from here (http://www.groireland.ie/). Download the form and fax it to them. They will search one year either side of the year you give them. The service is excellent, about one - two weeks from abroad.

Before 1864, God only knows, I've not got that far yet.:)

The Irish Family History Foundation may give you a clue.

Good Luck
