    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    I searched on two different sites and was unable to locate the marriage record for Kadey and Johanna or the baptismal record forMorgan. Likely these events occurred in an RC parish that does not have records back to 1816 or earlier. There are over 20 RC parishes in Co. Cork which have later records.

    I notced on your other message that you submitted Ancestor items. There is a review process so the items are not immediately updated but I will send your message to our Administrators.
