I am researching a Hugh McLaughlin born 1818 in Ireland.  I found  some McLaughlins in the Ireland Tithe Applotment book 1814-1855.  Donegal Kilmacrenan 1825.  This page lists a James, Dennis, Peter, Hugh, John, Charles, Edward McLaughlin.  Would there be any birth records to show a Hugh born in 1818?  Tests say Ulster Ireland?  He traveled to the US at some point and married an Elizabeth Evans from Llanddeiniolen, Caernarvonshire Wales.They were married 14 April 1852 Columbia, WI.I appreciate any information on this family.  Thank you Cate

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    There are no baptismal records available for Co. Donegal back to 1818. Co. Donegal is one of the nine counties in the North which are part of Ulster Province.

    McLaughlin is a very common surname in Co. Donegal. I checked the Tithe listings as you did and there were over 500 McLughlin records in a number of parishes in Co. Donegal.

    I would look at your top DNA matches particularly any with a McLaughlin in their tree and contact them and see if you can make a connection.

    You can also add Hugh's emigration story to our XO Chronicles site

  • Thank you for responding.  If I have the right person this is what I have found.  Hugh McLaughlin Arrival Date 1852 from Port of Liverpool, England to New York.  Ship name is Racer, from New York passenger and crew list Castle Garden and Ellis Island 1820-1957                I am hoping this is the right guy.  If you have any other information I appreciate it.  Thanks Cate
