The church records for Ardfinnan RC Parish are held by Waterford Heritage Center. Waterford has done a good
job in copying the records. However, the older records
are very hard to read. Several years ago I spent several hours going over the acutal church records, although I already had
the records for my family (Hally) from Waterford. The oldest
book 1810-1826 was wrapped up in paper and had not been
opened for a while. In years past someone had laminated all the pages, which I am not sure was a good or bad thing to do.
Up until about 1820 the records are hit and miss. Sometimes you can read it but often you can read only a part such as last name of one parent or sponsor.. Having a record not found does not mean there is not a record. In every case I where I expect a record in a certain year I found one where only the last name could be read.
It was my impression that there must be some sort of process that could read these old records, as they were very faded but not smudged/damaged etc.
