Interesting that this thread should be at the top when I log in! I'm trying to track down info about an Ann(ie) Morton born May 1899 in Armagh and came looking for any online parish records/info. Coincidence I'm sure :)

Is this the Annie Morton you are looking for? date and place of birth, parents' names & father's occupation all in register-

If that's not her then search on the site for her birth certificate.

One of her sons' middle names was Alexander so this seems very likely to be the one, thank you so much! I'm relatively new to searching Irish records so this is a huge help :)

Do you have the name of Annie's parents or other details that would confirm this Annie Morton is the one you are looking for?

Morton family in 1901-

and 10 years later-

sadly 4 other children died before 1911. church of Ireland in 1901 and Presbyterian in 1911.
