No, registration of births didn't start until 1864. However, many Catholic parish records are online (also free).

It may be a case of visiting the parish church to see if I can find baptismal records perhaps

No, the registers are online (free)- follow through with the link I posted earlier.

Where would you suggest looking online for more recent records of births/deaths in the 20th century?

You'll get births over 100 years old on Irish Genealogy- they also have deaths & marriages for N.I. counties up to 1921. GRONI's database has births over 100 years old, deaths over 50 years old and marriages over 75 years old- it's pay per view but if you have at least 1 credit then you can get quite a bit from the indexes.

PRONI have Will extracts which might mention more recent relatives but the Wills you will probably need a visit to PRONI to see recent stuff.

Googling often finds surprising details such as this list of contributors-

Which led me to their home page- http://www.laveyparish.com/
That website should keep you busy browsing for awhile  ;)

Thanks so much, I'll have a browse.

Any ideas if i might be able to find more on these two ladies -

Mary Josephine Hendry (Maiden name Magee), died 20/11/1995 in Lavey, Co. Derry aged 74. Married John Hendry (29/10/1917 - 18/05/2003)

Sarah Murphy (Maiden name Kelly), died 05/02/2002 in Dungiven, Co. Derry aged 82. Possible birth date of September 1919, Dungiven. Father's name possibly James Kelly, from Dungiven. Married William Murphy (00/00/1920 - 04/05/1978), Dungiven (son of Andrew Murphy & Jane Hampson).

If you have any advice on Mary or Sarah, please let me know and i'll do some research!

Cheers - K

You're now in a more difficult period to find information. Too recent for vital records and too late for recent obituaries.

Gravestone of John & Josephine Hendry- http://www.laveyparish.com/n27,24.htm

That same wonderful site has a tab for 'Notice Board' which has people looking for family information so I would try posting there for local help -

I shall have to post on the message board on there to see if anyone has any more information, the only info I have on Mary Josephine was that her parents were John Magee & Mary Ann Downey.

Note the following marriage, is it a possibility?
