Crossmolina Church Records
« on: Sunday 08 April 07 03:19 BST (UK) »
If anyone has Crossmolina Parish, Co Mayo ancestors, I would be happy to look them up in my databases
I have the Tithe-ca 1833, Griffiths Val 1856, 1901 and 1911 census, The Crossmolina Chrush Register #1279204, plus lots miscallaneous info.
.
PLEASE Please please...
 give as much detail as possible, as the church film is in very bad shape and difficult to interpret. There are several years missing. It ranges from 1832-1880, but is particularly difficult to read in the very beginnng years, and the last years there are very few entries.

I have the data base broken down into column headings:
Month, day,year, childs name, fathers first name, fathers last name, mothers first name, mothers last name, residence, and notes. Under notes, I put in email addresses or researchers additional info that I have collected, surname varients, if they emigrated, who they married, ect.
I can sort the database by each column, using what ever info you have given me.

Helpful or nessasary info includes:

You must at least know they are from Co mayo, and better still from Crossmolina. I will do a only general search if you are unsure.

Date or time frame, ie 1840-45.

Parents names- first and or last if possible.That includes wife or mother. (If I have only a last name of the father and the wifes first and or last- it may be enough to make a connection.

Siblings related to the lookup you are requesting. (If I couldn't read a name in the reg, I may find a sibling in the register)

Any surnames related to the family while living in Crossmolina- it could be a witness who may be a relative.

Any spelling varients that you have seen the name under- ie Byron Berrane Birrane Barran...

If the childs name is Bridget, but goes by the name of Bessie or Delia, ect.

If you are lucky enough to have a residence, please share it!

If you have grandparents names- it may help me find info to additional family.

Date they left Ireland- I don't want to be looking for families in 1870 if they emigrated in 1847.

Do you know if the parents married in Ireland? Date please-even a guess.

Please be patient- i do get busy! Put in Crossmolina Lookup in subject line- it will not be noticed without that. This is a new site to me, so I do hope that I am 'alerted' when someone responds to this offer. Otherwise I may forget to return here to check for requests. :-\

Thank you ladies, for welcoming me!

Its because of volunteers that we make any headway at all, in my opinion. I am so thankful that I got the genealogy bug when the internet became so popular- I dispise writting letters!

I made my Crossmolina Sweeney Connections thanks to the internet and all the genealogy Bullatin Boards,  I encourage everyone to use them. What a GIFT they have been to me. I posted my names in the states my ancestors lived in when they emigrated, posted them in Ireland community websites, and everywhere else I could.
What a thrill it is to walk the same l;and that my Sweeneys farmed in the 1800s, and to meet and talk to new found relatives- still living on the same land today! The original house is now used as a storage shed or barn, with the cornerstone reading 1805. Awesome indeed to touch that stone, I hope every single one of you Mayo decendents get to do that very same thing!

Good luck to you,

Diane Sweeney Groman

Magnificent. I am longing for the day that I can go to Ireland and England to walk the walk. I always get choked up when I hold documents or pictures that my ancestors held, or go to the actual grave, or see a home they lived in.

I too have queries on all the boards I could find. I forget where they are and I forget passwords to get on to some of them. I started before the Internet and it wasn't easy. What a difference the Internet makes.

I have ancestors who were in Doocastle in Mayo. As far as I know, so far, that is my only Mayo connection.

See you around the boards.

How nice of you to offer to do this!
I know the following:
From the 1901 Crossmolina census, living in townland Lackalustraun 2 were my grandfather Thomas O'Boyle (b. 1868), his wife Delia Lavelle (b. 1871), my great-grandmother Catherine O'Boyle (married name) (b. 1841).
Would your database information provide any of the following?
- father of Thomas O'Boyle
- Catherine's maiden name
- parents of Delia Lavelle and any related info
- marriage information for Thomas and Delia

Thank you again for any information you can provide.

Hello Bobwst
In case you don't have the 1911 census:

1911 Lacklustraun:
Tho   OBoyle   Head   55      m
Delia   OBoyle   Wife   45      m
Martin   OBoyle   Son   13      s
Michael   OBoyle   Son   11      s
Mary   OBoyle   Dtr   9      s
Kate   OBoyle   Dtr   7      s
Delia   OBoyle   Dtr   5      s
Julia   OBoyle   Dtr   3      s
ellen   OBoyle   Dtr   1      s
Kate   OBoyle   Mother   80      w

Oboyle:

1850   64   Nov   Francis   Mich   OBoyle   Cath   Fergus
1854   73   May   Pat   Mich   OBoyle   Cath   Fergus
1863   110b   Feb   ?   Mich   OBoyle   Cath   Fergus
1865   115b   June   Mich   Mich   OBoyle   Cath   Fergus
1867   124a   Dec   Tho   Mich   OBoyle   Cath   Fergus
1870   136a   April   Ann   Mich   OBoyle   Cath   Fergus
1875   165a   August   Cath   Mich   OBoyle   Cath   Fergus
1856   81a   June   Celia   Mich   OBoyle   Cath   Fergus
1858   89b   July   Edw   Mich   OBoyle   Cath   Fergus
1860   99a   Oct   Mary   Mich   OBoyle   Cath   Fergus


Levelle Info:
1869   134a   Nov   Bridget   Mich   Lavelle   Barb   Merrick   
1872   146b   March   Mary   Mich   Lavelle   Barb   Merrick
1874   157b   April   John   Mich   Lavelle   Barb   Merrick
1876   170b   Oct   ?   Mich   Lavelle   Barb   Merrick
1879   184b   May   Eleanor   Mich   Lavelle   Barb   Roche?
1869   None   Jan   MARR   Mich   Lavelle   Barb   Merrick
Notes:
All children born to Barb Merrick were from Letterbrick.
The child born to Barb Roche? was from Tawnakeel.
Delia is a derivative of Bridget
Ignore the middle column.
? means name was unreadable.

Please remember there are many names that are missing or unreadable-this is a list of name that I could decipher. Plenty of room for error, so you may want to check the film out yourself- 1279204.

In Griffiths Valuaton done in ca 1856, there were 2 Patrick O'Boyles and 1 Francis OBoyle. No Fergus families in the townland.
There was a Patrick Lavelle in Letterbrick, and a Michael Lavelle in Tawnakeel

Have no marriage info for Tho & Delia- database stop 1880ish.

Not sure if you subscribe to the Mayo list- there are several people researching the OBoyles in Crossmolina-myself included. You might want to post your names there- Im sure you'll get several inquiries.

Hope this is the right info for you!

Crossmolina Church Records/ and O'Boyles
« Reply #8 on: Saturday 17 November 07 20:28 GMT (UK) »
Hello, I was hoping you could look up O'Boyles in Crossmolina. The father was solomon O'Boyle who married his wife Mary Judge about 1845 or so. They had a son named John who married a girl named Anne quinn. Her father may have been a Peter Quinn. I hope you could help me. Bob
