Derry (Londonderry) / Magilligan Presbyterian Church Records.1814-1880
« on: Friday 08 August 14 20:31 BST (UK)  »
I wonder if there are any kind Rootschat readers who are going to PRONI in the near future. I am looking for records of my ancestors The Cummings Family of Ballycarton, Limavady in the Magilligan Presbyterian Parish Registers. I have been in touch with PRONI for their records search service for people who dont live near Belfast & I received an email today from them their search fee is £15 per 15 minutes thus £60 per hour. Plus photocopying & verfication fees. Unfortunately my husband & I are OAP's & that sort of fee is too expensive.

If any one is going to PRONI & could have a quick look I would be very grateful ,I would pay for any photocopying & verfication fees & for postage. I live in CO.Wexford so have not a hope of ever getting there.

Derry (Londonderry) / Searching for the McDermotts of Duncrun Limavady.
« on: Monday 28 March 11 22:01 BST (UK)  »
It is a while since my previous posts and thankyou to all those who answered them. This time I am looking for help tracing my ancestors the Mc Dermotts of Duncrun. The only information that I have for them is from my Great great grandparents marriage Certificate in 1871. When Elizabeth Mc Dermott from Duncrun Limavady married James Cummings fromBallycarton. in Belarena church. On the marriage certificate her fathers name is given as Charles Mc Dermott.  That is all I know.

I know absolutely nothing more and I am desperately trying to find out more about the Mc Dermotts of Duncrun.

If anyone has any information I would very much appreciate it.
