  • Dear Brien:

    Thank you for your queries to the Ireland Reaching Out message board.

    Unfortunately, the Kiltormer parish registers only begin to record baptisms in 1834 which would appear to be too late for Michael Calahan, but may be helpful for Maria Berane.  These registers can be accessed for free through the National Library of Ireland website at:

    You can filter your search by event, year and month. 

    In addition, you can also search through the Tithe Applotment Books which cover the period of 1823-37

    Griffith's Valuation also known as the Primary Valuation of Ireland covers land occupancy between the years 1848-1864's

    The 1901 and 1911 Censuses may be helpful for any family members that remained in the parish:

    If you need further assistance, please let me know.

    The best of luck!


    All the best,


    Jane Halloran Ryan
