Celebrate our 5th Blogiversary 

by using the search engine at the bottom of the page and looking for your ancestral names among the many thousands of transcriptions, newspaper clippings, Births, Deaths, Marriages, announcements and so much more ...
all entirely free.

My sincere thanks go to all who have contributed, I couldn't do it without you.

  1. Congratulations Chris...you are a prolific and wonderful blogger....don't know how you get it all done.

    1. Thank you, Pauleen.. I always seem to have so much more that I want to write about than what I do. It's nice to know that someone reads some of it.

  2. Happy Blogiversary, Chris, and well done.

  3. Thank you, Dara.. it goes so quickly.

  4. Blogiversary wishes from me to you. Admire your stamina.

  5. Thanks, Jill... you aren't exactly slack yourself... :-)

  6. Thank you for all you do for Irish research Chris. I will have a look at your search engine but don't like my chances. I wish your indexes to BMDs recorded parents names as ours do. Trying to find deaths for correct Murphy, Brennan & McAuliffe family members in Newmarket Cork is just about impossible. If you have any clues to finding children born to Tim Murphy & Julia nee Brennan after Dan in 1861 I'd love to hear from you. Cheers, Carmel

    1. Carmel, if the NLI doesn't help.and if you've tried Irish Genealogy, then maybe try http://www.corkgenealogicalsociety.com/...if not contact me via the address in About Me and let me know all you have on them and I will pass it on to another researcher.

  7. Thank you, Carmel. That would be nice... having more details.. If you find a way, maybe you could help me with my Dillon, Keane, McGuane in Clare...
    The only real option is to go through the parish registers, if Catholic... try NLI and search through. I have next to no experience with Cork, bt I will contact you and let you know of someone who might have an idea. Find My Past has free access to the Catholic Registers, sometimes easier to look through there.
