    Mitchelstown RC baptismal records start in 1792 but there is a gap from July 1801 til September 1814 which means the records for Alice and John are not available. Marriage records start in 1822.

    When I searched the subscription site Roots Ireland, I did find records for Mary 1816 William 1817 Patrick 1820 Margaret 1822 Thomas 1824.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

  • Hi Kmr, 

    I recommend that you have a look at the Historic Graves website. This is a resource of digitised graveyards around the island of Ireland. The database is always being added to so check back regularly. From the drop down bar on the home page you can either search by map of Ireland or click explore and select name to search by surname (the link is below). Zoom in on an area of interest, click a graveyard, scroll down and you can read the headstone inscriptions. Keep in mind too that only legible headstones have been added, so if you can't see a name of interest it does not necessarily mean they are not buried there. It's also good to cross check with other records where possible.

    It might also be worthwile contacting Mitchelstown Heritage Society. They are very active and have a good knowledge of local genealogy. Their Facebook link is…;

    Good luck!
