Donegal Deaths
« on: Friday 30 March 18 08:52 BST (UK) »
Is there a site that gives death registrations in Donegal after 1970?
The wonderful Irish Genealogy.ie does not.
Many thanks for any help.

Yes, Doherty which means trawling through lots of names!
I have first names Rose born in 1888 and Edward/Eddie born in 1893 both Upper Drumhallagh.

Thanks for that.

I did try wills as I think he made one, with no luck. The ref you gave me has a death that is too late and not correct address. Pity!

Is there no site that lists Death after 1960 with dates and reference number for further enquiries?
I am in Scotland so unable to search paper records!!

Not really....sometimes googling surname and whatever address it was can turn up something!

Done all that several times over weeks with no results.
