  • Hi, I'm looking into my family tree and I'm looking for a Mary Mylott (dad is showing up as christr mcguiness) who gave birth to a Christopher mcguinness born 1851. I've found a record of Christopher being baptised at Meath St (which I'm assuming is where St. Catherine's is) if anyone can help me I would be extremely grateful, Thankyou, Hayley
