I need to order authenticated baptismal certificates for one great grandmother from Killmury (Cork/Ross/Ovens) parish (30 Novembr 1837) and another from Ovens/Aglis (1 March 1853).  I have the microfilm numbers.

I can't find where to order them to be mailed, but I will be in Ireland late July.  If it is possible, I could go to the churches and ask, but I don't know where they are.

Does anyone know how to do this process?

I appreciate any information.

Thank you.

  • Eileen:

    "Normally" you would contact the two churches to get a baptismal certificate for your two ancestors. What I don't know are the current Covid restrictions and whether the parish offices are open.

    The parish web sites are here:

    I have e-mailed Dave Whyte who is one of our Ireland Reaching Out partners and asked him to give you assistance with your request.

  • Dear Roger, Dave, and McCoy,

    You found my great grandother, Cate Deasy, at Murragh & Templemartin and I finally found a parish contact, and just received her baptismal record.  I am so very grateful to you all for your help.

    Bless you.  I am so happy!!!

    I now have two great grandmothers' births, marriages, and deaths, and I can clearly see their lives.  I grew up in their house, so I feel connected.

    Thanks again.
