    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    Roots Ireland has the Drumhome Church of Ireland records going back to the 1700s. Burial records are also available. You may want to consider a short-term subscription to Roots to view available family records. I was unable to find a baptismal record for the 1760 Thomas or his marriage record to Mary McKee.

    You also may also want to add the stories of any ancestors who left Ireland to our XO Chronicles site Possibly someone will recognize your family.

  • Hi Emeli,

    I justed loaded my maternal great great (2X) grandfathers information (Thomas Sommerville Morrow) into the Drumhome parish site. My great great grandfather was also born in Ballintra, but immigrated to Ontario around 1850. So I was wondering whether you had any success in finding baptismal, marriage or burial records for your family in or near Balllintra. I assume my 3X great grandparents are buried in or near Ballintra. As I understand it, they were protestant, so I guess Church of Ireland members. As suggested by Roger did you try a short term subscription to Roots and have any success ?

    If you don't mind, I would be interested in hearing about your efforts to obtain Ireland documentation.
