 ;D   Hello Lynn, Please contact me I do believe, I might be able to help you.
Bosco Harkin     (*)

Mary McGoldrick (born Donegal Town around 1860's) married a Harkin. She lived at 4 Abercorn Road in Londonderry in 1921, when my great grandfather entered the US via Ellis Island.

Would anyone be able to lookup a marriage between Mary McGoldrick and Mr. Harkin? Thanks!

Hello again
I have just received a copy of the marriage certificate of James & Fanny.
It gives the year of the marriage has 6/1/1889 not 88.
James living in Carndonagh i cannot make out his fathers name as i think they shortend it to J A harkin which would match other members of the family, both are given as farmers.
Fanny's father was called Michael  not Philip as in a previous message sorry if i wasted anyone's time , can not make out proffession only it looks like the letters W O ? .
Witness's were Bernard McLaughlin & Kate MCallion

Hi Celtic Gael (or anyone else)

                   Do you happen to know if the original parish records are held in the Sacred Heart Church in Carn. I made inquiries there a few years ago but the Parish Priest proved to be rather off handed so I did not persue it but perhaps it may be worth another try.

There is copies of the  Carndonagh Births/Marriages records in the Library from 1850 --1900. I can do a  search for you. Let me know what you want .

Hi Agnes
              I have photo copies of pages from Carndonagh but what I would like to see is the original entries. I would like to see if they would yield more information than the printouts in Carn Library. I may be in Carn in the spring and if the originals were in the church I would try and make an appointment with the secretary and see if it was possible to view them.
 Thanks again for your offer of help and your reply
