If you go to the PRONI website and search their e-catalogue for Ballylig, you will find 73 mentions of Ballylig. There are various leases relating to the mineral rights etc. There are maps, wills etc too. If you are hoping for employee records from over 200 years, I’d be very surprised if anything like that has survived. But it’s worth checking.
In the main, the records themselves are not on-line. The e-catalogue gives a brief description of each one, but accessing the records themselves involves a visit to PRONI (in Belfast). If you are unable to go yourself, you could employ a researcher. Researchers in the PRONI area: http://sgni.net
If the family was Presbyterian then generally Presbyterians don't keep burial records, so unless there is a gravestone, you will struggle to find details of where folk are buried. Only the wealthier folk could afford a gravestone. Tha majority of the population was buried without one. If the family was Church of Ireland then they do keep burial records but in the case of Glynn, they only start in 1838. (Copy held in PRONI).
