I have been seeking ancestors on and around Henry and William Street.  I have a couple of street names that I cannot find.  In a previous post, a very helpful person identified Kelly's Lane had been renamed St Joseph's Ave.  

The street names I am confused about are "Camp" and "Bathinghouse".  These are on Rahoon Church Baptism Records.

Also seeking understanding on an address that says, "charter school", this is also Rahoon Church Baptism Record.

Thank you so much for any advice.

    I located the 2016 message and responses where Kelly's Lane was identified as now being St. Joseph's Ave.…

    I will contact the volunteer who helped out in 2016. Likely Camp and Bathinghouse were local place names and may not show up on a current map.

    I contacted Shane Wilson who is one of our volunteers. Shane is an expert on old city maps and many other areas. Check out his web site here     Hopefully, this link will show you Shane's response on the Camp and Bathinhouse locations. If this link does not work, let me know and I will take another approach.

  • Thank you, Patricia and Roger!

    Roger, I found the website for Shane Wilson and sent him an email.  Hopefully, he will answer here so we can all see his information, if not, I will post it so we can all learn.

    I am new to Irelandxo and can't believe the wealth of help and information.  I feel like I am finally emerging from a 40-year black hole!  It is amazing what is happening with Irish information.  So thankful!

    Can someone please guide me to a link on here where I can learn how to use the site better?

    Much Mahalo for your help!

    Shane's response is at the link above but you have to click thru the messages. I'm sure Shane will get back to you. You can also send me an e-mail at and I will forward Shane's e-mail to you.

    Regarding using the site, I would suggest you go to the main page   We have ancestor stories  (shown as XO Chronicles) plus an extensive message board. At the parish level, there are varying degrees of information on the parish.
