you didn't mention which religion Alexander & Jane were , but according to Ryan's Irish records there are no surviving baptism records for either Church of Ireland or Catholic in Templemichael before about 1790. Details listed are :

Church of Ireland

 baptisms : from 1796
 marriages : from 1770
 locations : local custody and National Archives ref : M5724-6

Catholic

 baptisms & marriages : from 1802 (missing some details from first half of 1808)
 location : local custody and National Library microfilms P.4232 & 4233

Shane,
What did people do then, did they go and see the minister and make a date for the ceremony and just do it.  If they wanted to part, just do that as well without sense of responsibility.

Was this the only time that women stood up and demanded that someone do something about the situation and big mistake they were given registration.?

Sheila,
I have May in my family tree, or rather O'May from Renfrew and prior Ireland.
I also have Forbes as a family name interest.
Aberdeen and surrounding areas.

they are the details given by Ryan's book for  records.. which still exist

there's no details given on when the record keeping actually began for a parish.

Full civil registration did not commence until much later in 1864.

Hopefully, I may be able to find my people.  I think they were presbyterian.  and Smith is a very,very common name.

Hi Marcie,
May is my 2nd married name & I know absolutely nothing about them, Sorry!
Please can you give me the details you have on the Forbes form Aberdeen, as all my father's siblings & my father are dead, but I was tole they originally came from Scotland.
Who know, maybe Alexander came originally from Aberdeen.
Regards
Sheila    ;)

Hi Shane,
Most of the records I have found were Templemichael.
I can find no records of Alexander & Jane's son Alexander, dates I have been given are 1790,1792 & 1793, his brother Edward also various dates, however I have his marriage certificate 26/11/1815 Templemichael & the birth of his son Alexander 26/5/1817 Templemichael.
I also have Alexander & Jane's wedding certificate 16/9/1780 Templemichael.
That is all I have, and it seems they belonged to the Church of Ireland.
Thanks
Regards
Sheila
