Any first names? Place in Time? Finding Kelly, O'Dowd's and Donoghues would be a problem as there are so many.

Igo(as spelled) there are 52 in Roscommon for the Griffith
Valuation of 1857.

These are not listed under their Union - Strokestown
but by Parish. All parishs, villages within 12 mi. radius.

The Parish's within the Poor Law Union of Strokestown are:

As there are so many you can look these up on (watch for the other surnames as neighbours.

Thomas Igo, Roscommon Shopkeeper, Lanesborough St.

There are others spelled Igoe Mayo, Kildare, Dublin and Longford Counties.

Tithe Applotments: 1820-1849:

Census 1901/1911:

Roscommon RC records can go back quite aways, see

also this is where you will find bmd's from 1864 on.
I have births from 1864-1875 with parents names if you have any Igo's that fit.

Prior to 1864 all records are Parish records, Roscommon does belong to an Irish History Foundation. It is a fee for service but a 'not for profit' organization.

You haven't given any dates, so you will have to do your own searching.

There are 6 Igoe in the Roscommon telephone book and 1 of these is in Strokestown, a letter perhaps?
over 100 Kelly's, didn't separate out Strokestown.
29 ODowd's, 11 ODonoghue's.
