I am researching the John and Kate Walsh family from Aclare, County Sligo. Their daughter, Delia, left Ireland with her two brothers James and Michael for the U.S. abt. 1907. In the 1901 census they are living in Aclare with their parents and numerous siblings. According to Delia's records, her mother was Kate Lundy.

I'm not related this this family (but my family comes from this general area)..There are a couple distant walshes in my tree, but it was a common name..

But if you want i could do some lookups for the baptism records. Don't know what kind of information you are looking for...

That would be awesome!

I am looking for the baptismal certificates for John and Kate's children. My great grandmother's name was Delia and her death certificate listed her birth at Nov. 1885. However, in the 1901 census there are no Delia's listed as children. I am thinking that her real name was Mary? Or Bridget?

Thanks so much for this offer! Are you planning to look at FHL film? Or are you in Sligo? I do have the ability to order films from the FHL, but I wasn't sure what film to order.

Thanks again!

The film that you want is 1279321

Given the ages of their children, they will cross multiple items.

Here are the children of John Walsh and Kate Lundy that i found in Item 12

-Michael Walsh. Baptism Oct 1893 in Aclare, Sligo, Ireland (Sponsors: Michael Lundy & Mary Kildune).
-Maggie Walsh. Baptism on 29 Oct 1895 in Aclare, Sligo, Ireland (Sponsors: Maurice Lundy & Margaret Durcan).
-Michael Martin Walsh. Baptism Oct 1897 in Aclare, Sligo, Ireland (Jas Walsh and Mary Lundy).
-Henry Joseph Walsh. Baptism Dec 1899 in Aclare, Sligo, Ireland (Sponsors: Pat Lundy, Ellen Lundy).

Let me see what i find in the other items for the 1880s and early 1890s.

I have items 7 and 8 transcribed... i wouldn't be surprised if you find kate lundy here somewhere

John might be too old as the baptisms were not recorded until 1845.. but you should be able to order their marriage record.

Awesome! Thanks so much. I look forward to seeing what you find in the other items.

Your link is one that I have looked at before. Your transcriptions gave me some hope that I would be able to find my family in the microfilm. I will order the FHL today.

I had a typo in the previous message..the film is 1279231

I think the rest of the children are in Item 10... which i don't have right now. I don't know the next time i will be at my local LDS library.

And there is one more child in Item 12
Kate Anne Dec 7, 1904.. And i think the sponsors are Martin Lundy and Bridget Lundy (a bit difficult to read because the record is on the lower right of the page)

I would guess that kate lundy is the child of Denis Lundy and Bridget Leheny (but that is just an educated guess)
.

Thanks so much! I really appreciate your help. I've ordered the film for myself, so I will look at item 10.

I too believe that Kate is the daughter of Denis Lundy! Wow, another whole generation back...thanks to your transcriptions!

Again, I really appreciate your help.

Yes actually I have rec'd this film. But thanks for much for following up. I really appreciate it. Maybe someday the fact that you put them online will allow one of their descendants to find me!
