  • Hi there,

    Thank you very much for your query to Ireland Reaching Out.

    There are some records for the Termonmaguirk area dated to 1780. This is a householders list that can be found at the Representative Church Body Library GS 2/7/3/25. If you are lucky, you might find John McAleer's parent's details listed on this.

    I hope this is of some help.

    Kind regards,

    Sinead Cooney

  • Dear Sinead,

    Thank you for your reply.  I hope to visit the RCBL some day, but cannot in the near future. Please let me know if records are available in print,  digitized, or on film outside of Ireland.

    Best regards,

    Beth McAleer
