Thank you, Annette. I do have much of this info but I appreciate the time you took on it.

The IFHF is not accurate in the dates it gives for its records. I have looked at the microfilm for Kinnegad parish at the National Library in Dublin and the parish records don't really go back that far except a few here and there. Many records are missing or illegible. I would guess this is true of most old records. So if your family member is not there...it doesn't mean they weren't there.

The reason Irish records don't go back as far as those of some other nations is that the Catholic church was illegal in Ireland until 1829, altho 90% of the population was Catholic. I will say no more.
