Generally, NO ONE monitors the message boards waiting to do free research for others who post a surname - it is a long process IF you want results ! In the past, some would do free "lookups" as not all had the CDs but Now it, or the records, are freely available online and many people are researching/ searching their Ancestry -- chatting with people from the same AREA as your Ancestors is smart and might result in much better information that is not posted online - chatting here, as opposed to one post of a Surname is often the best ways to find information. One MUST do a systematic search of the resources available on the General Order set forth below if you do NOT want to waste YOUR time --- SurNames and the Townland your Ancestors lived IS CRITICAL

the 1901/1911 Irish Census is generally the best starting point. Surnames in the same area (or County like Sligo) can be easily found by a query to the Nat. Archives search page by surname or townland (or just browse). Then one should search Griffiths (Primary) Valuation of Tenements ("Griffiths") which was some 30-70 years earlier, but it was a "property tax list" not a family record, but it is one of the only, and best, available after the "Fourt Courts" fire burnt the prior census records in 1922. Those Leasing (for "lives" meaning their life, and when they passed the Sons life - pretty odd but is in the records that way sometimes) of those "Owning" 1 acre (or more) but this was adjusted several times in different areas -- so it does NOT have everyone in Ireland at the time (1860s-to-1880s)
__________________________________________________
You GENERALLY need:
1) Your (Ancestor's) SURNAMES (both Maternal and Paternal would be best to search to be through);

and

2) The TOWNLAND they were in or lived or married or born or the parents/family resided.
____________________________________________________
Please note Sligo and Mayo Counties did some splitting in the border area in the 1800s so be aware (but usually it is NOT a concern as records were adjusted). Although most of this is applicable to Irish research in general, I specifically amassed these doing Sligo and Mayo Counties, and more specifically KILMACTEIGE PARISH (centered around Aclare Village to Tourlestrane to Swinford in the opposite direction). My Ancestors go back 100s, if not 1000s of Years in this area - No way to know for sure as much has been lost to time (and when a Elder passes, We loose all that information ! INTERVIEW YOUR GRANDPARENTS BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE !
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Then you search by putting some time into it looking through the records and listing those that fit your parameters (or conversely eliminate who you know is NOT your family members), do not chase a same names just because (it's generally a waste of time if no other parameters fit). Just because "Jones" (example) fits your Ancestor in a close by area, if no townland match, note it and move on -- - same names come up over and over (I do Murphy which is a real challenge) so it is not something to chase unless it is in the area you know they lived at the time they lived there.

Researching your Ancestry is not an instant thing (and posting one message here asking if it "sounds familiar" IMHO is pointless and wastes everyone time - searching is the only way) ! These are old records and generally people do not "know them" (and most search for THEIR Ancestors, not yours or anyone elses - an exception is the ever expanding list of names in everyone's ancestry is researched back far enough, or researchers). It is really simple to do, BUT one must put the time, the hours, into looking through records of an area for the SURNAME and then FORENAME in the TOWNLAND your Ancestors lived ! Surnames began generally around the 6th to 12th Centuries.

You will get out what you put in it!
PERSISTENCE PAYS OFF AS WITH MOST THINGS IN LIFE (IF IT IS WORTH IT IT TAKES WORK) !!
It might take 1 hour, or it might take 40 Hours before you get that one match, or break that "helps", all it takes is persistence and keeping at it. Surname and Townlands are key in Ireland as all records are local (need to stay focused on that and not go off on tangents). Throw a wide net to start and eliminate people till you get to a workable group. Small bits or "break-throughs" are the result of hard work -- break this big job into small parts as it works best -- otherwise it is daunting and seems insurmountable (it is not). Only those that give up loose out (IF you know they existed, generally, some type of records exists). Bear in mind however, many perished in the famine and no records might exist. No records of those that left exists (except perhaps ships manifests which are better the closer to the 1900s and forward - as Gov. imposed restrictions).

SPELLING and PHONETICS
Spelling is "iffy" in these records as (1) many were illiterate, and (2) it was written down phonetically (how it sounded to the person making the record). So even if spelling is not exact, do NOT let it go just because of that -- (even Murphy is spelled a dozen ways amazingly). One must realize many/most of Our Ancestors could not spell (English) so make sure to vary Surname spelling searches and do not discard or ignore results which are not exact to what you "expect" or "think" should be ---again, the correct spelling as most Surnames can be spelled several ways (esp. keep in mind the Irish Brouge can be "thick" to NON-native tounge speakers, (think of the first time your heard a heavy Irish Brouge) like the "old sod" or "ole sod, or "auld sod"") - "misspelling" are very very common and one should intentionally search with a strategyof "fuzzy" Spelling of a Surname (and should be done in as many different ways as possible which should yield some different results than your originally came up with). Again it is a process of trying different surname spellings, as well as in adjoining townlands and areas.

SURNAME DISTRIBUTIONS BY COUNTY ARE AVAILABLE:
Surnames distribution is a quick first search method to know how may of that surname was in each County when the work was done (which might give you days, or months of work to do)! IT IS A PROCESS OF ELIMINATION - eliminate those which are doubtful matches *but keep them in a list if those you chose do not pan out and work the best list of candidates (or matches) first. You can always go back. Learn to use database programs to keep a record where you went, when, and what you did otherwise You risk going in circles. If you do not use a computer, good ole notebook works fine too. And if you do use a computer, makes copies, use backups as Hard drives do fail often - I backup on a USB drive and remove from the computer EVERY TIME I do research to make sure it is not lost. USB Drives are cheap and huge now days.
The below are the Three MAIN web search sites (Census, Griffiths, and Tithe). Tons exist after that but it is the best starting point (and I will post advanced research techniques at Kilmacteige.com in the coming months as it will become the respository off all records for the area.
=========================================================

THE KEY TO RESEARCHING IN IRELAND :

Is the 1901/1911 Census as it is the basis of all that remains of Island Wide census records.

Next is GRIFFITHS.
Then TITHE DEFAULTERS (the "Tithe" was required "donation" to support the "Established" or Prot. Church -- most Catholics were (intentionally) "defaulters" as the law had an error in it as no enforcement mechanism, so those who refused where just listed as "defaulters" -- I would imagine their refusal to support the Prot. Priest/Church and Lands (Demesne) when these Catholics went to another Church and already had a Parish Priest (P.P) makes sense.

WORK FROM THE PRESENT (KNOWN) TO THE PAST (UNKNOWN):
Work backwards from present to past using what you know for sure as researching without a solid foundation could result is completely wasting your time going in the wrong direction. The basics from relatives (or what you KNOW FOR SURE overhearing as a child) might be a good basis -- but if it was wrong then Your off on a wrong search trajectory to start with so it is clear this is the first, and most important thing to do (got to have a solid foundation to start with) !

PROFESSIONAL PAID RESEARCH HAS IT'S PLACE WHEN YOU DO THE BASICS:
Hiring People they will do this exact same thing ! This is precisely what professional researchers do and work in a systematic way, working backwards in time from known to unknown. They also can order Certificates sometimes at a better price We can in the Public. For Kilmacteige I always recommend Gerard Neary (as He lives there) Irish Ancestry Research http://irishancestryresearch.com/about_irish_ancestry_resear...

ANCESTRY.COM PAID WORLD SUBSCRIPTION SHOULD BE USED OCCASIONALLY (WHEN ALL OTHER WORK HAS BEEN EXAUSTED OR YOU HAVE A "BRICK WALL"):
The ones that do charge should be searched LAST (after you have done everything else for the year you can at that point, and ONLY SPEND ONE MONTH FOR THE "WORLD" DATABASES, BEING CAREFUL TO CANCEL AND GET A CONFIRMATION CODE FOR CANCELLATION. Paying is not guarantee to results --- You can stay on the message boards with your ancestry account (email and password) for FREE (even after you cancel paid subscriptions). Check back as I see many posts people left and have never checked back and people responded (some go back decades). A post to the message boards lasts forever. I pay usually in Winter for one month to access to the "World" databases as they are always buying more every year as they are discovered and digitized -- one month is OK and around $26 (search more during that month as it is costing you, you want to accomplish as much as possible during that paid time).

RELIGION IS KEY AND MAINLY CATHOLIC IN THE REPUBLIC:
Your Ancestor's Religion is also a CRITICAL consideration as most of this applies to Roman Catholics (what were raised in is generally the question to ask?). Most Irish in the Republic or South were (and still are) mainly Roman Catholic (R/C), about 95% to 98% of population. Next is Protestant at around 2% of the population (mainly Planters, and then later the" Protestant Ascendency" failed but some, who could not leave or liked Ireland stayed and made valuable contributions, sometimes, to the Irish disporia - but they did keep the boot to most of Irish for over 900 years, soooo....that is hard to forget (not to mention shipping food OUT of Ireland during the Famine, more than enough to advert the Famine completely !!). They are all dead now so I see little point in anything but remembering and Memorializing the tragedy so it never happens again.

PROTESTANTS BECAME "MORE IRISH THAN THE IRISH" IN FIRST (1200s) PLANTATIONS:
This happened in waves over Centuries and the first "Planters" or or Protestants became "...more Irish than the Irish..." (or so it is said back in good ole England) - then Penal laws were put in place to address this during the second "wave" or well known Plantations ("around" 1700s to 1850s generally) to bar "Planters" from dressing, marrying, talking or becoming "Irish"!

Religion will Help with finding Church Parishes (as opposed to civil parishes, which sometimes have the exact same name but often different borders). In South Sligo Kilmactiege (various spellings) Parish WERE ALSO CIVIL PARISHES.

RECORDS IN KILMACTEIGE:
Birth and Marriage CHURCH records (Tourlestrane) date back to 1845 but are not in computer searchable form (yet, which is why We need a hundred or more people to do some transcribing of them into databases --to make short work of it-- as the microfiche are HARD to read --and these people also need to be computer literate (and have an internet connection)....Other Areas/ Parishes (like Donegal) have done it and made the Records freely available online in searchable databases --- but this has NOT happened in Kilmacteige yet...., perhaps the if enough people get together (see KILMACTEIGE.COM) and sign up enough people would be able to do it in a short time -- many hands make light work -- it is clear the Gov. is NOT going to - it's up to those who want to use the resource to come together and transcribe (some 600+ images) and Index it.

The Mormons also copied the records back in the 1920s I think so SOME are on familysearch.org, but the same issues exists - transcription into sdearchable databases. Some others have done certain surnames but as of 2013 no one has done the entire record of Birt (Baptisms actually) and Marriages. They do NOT contain death records -- but grave stones are slowly being listed and photos posted (KILMACTEIGE.COM) of the "old" (St. Kieran's) and "new" Cemetery.
