Birth Record Jeremiah Byrne
« on: Tuesday 09 February 16 13:00 GMT (UK) »
Hi

I am trying to find a birth for Jeremiah Byrne born 1873 (according to Army records) in Raheen Abbeyliex. Father is also Jeremiah Byrne (Jerry) I don't know the mother.   I have looked in registration records for births and also in church records for a baptism in Raheen but had no luck. Where should I go next.  Any ideas ?  Any help would be much appreciated.

Hi
As you know the surviving catholic registers are online but with no index.
Next month FindMyPast will be putting their indexed entries  of the parish registers on line ,even if you don't have a subscription usually a search will bring up a parish before you have to pay.
So I'd wait a month and save myself the work of going through all the parishes.

Otherwise there is a Jeremiah Byrne on the Griffiths valuation 1853 Queens,Cullenagh,Abbeyleix -Rothmoyle township who may well be your man.
