I'm confused here  :-\

Could anyone help me find Andrew's baptism/birth record as well?

I thought this was the Andrew Cassidy who married Teresa McGurk in 1878? or are you asking about a different Andrew?

It is, I think he was born about 1857 in the Derry area, can't find him though...would love to find out his mother's name. Don't see his marriage either on these?

Going back to an earlier reply of mine-
Remember that civil registration of births started in 1864 so for earlier dates you need to check for church records.

Naturally you wouldn't have found anything via links that hallmark posted for a pre-1864 birth.

I tried to search church records, but didn't find anything. :(

As I mentioned earlier, marriages usually take place in the bride's church so Andrew might have come from a different parish. Another possibility is that there is a gap in the records around the time of his baptism or records don't start early enough.
