I'm looking for some help in trying to find the parents of my great great grandfather, Patrick Murphy. I know from his marriage record that his father was Martin Murphy, listed as deceased on Pat's marriage in Aug 1871.
According to the records I do have, RIC and DMP records. Patrick was born abt 1846, he was 20 yrs old entering the RIC, it states that he was Catholic and born in Wexford.
The DMP stated born Wexford, Rossminogue, post town Camolin.
I found a record for a Martin Murphy valuation 1845. Event place : Rossminogue, Gorey,Wexford,Ireland
Town land: Island Lower.
My question is, What Catholic parishes would you suggest that I search for Baptismal records if that is Patrick's father? I don't have his mothers name.
Any suggestions and advice would be appreciated.
Thank You

  • Kathy,

    Island Lower and the civil parish of Rossminogue are in the RC parish of Camolin. Unfortunately their baptism records don’t start till 1853.

  • Thank You. Does that mean they didn't keep records, or just not available yet?

  • It usually means they weren't keeping records. (That was common in the early 1800s). Or there may have been some earlier records that have been lost.

  • Oh, it is truly great research, last summer I decided to create my family`s genealogical tree as a present for my grandparent's wedding anniversary. So, this idea came in my head after reading while I was preparing my research at college. I needed these free essay samples as I was writing my coursework for sociology study and there was a lot about biographical studies. It looked so interesting, but not easy for sure, I am still in process with my tree) But, I found some good tips at this forum, I hope I will move on soon.

  • It's a good research, I can't even imagine, how much time was spent to it. When I was writing my research paper, I couldn't spend so much time, so I decided to order it. I found this review about Pro-Papers, and saw that their customers were satisfied with their work, and the prices were quite reasonable. Now I don't regret I've chosen this services, it is trustworthy.

  • I love photography, that’s the big part of my life. But it takes a lot of strength to ride or ride around to get those shots that we all looking for. That’s the reason why I started to improve my life. Now I try to sleep well, eat better food, workout each week. If you want to make some sport’s too, you should try morning workout routine at home. It will improve your health,  strength and also would make look better. So you should try it, if you want to change something in your life)
