OK so I have never delved into researching in Ireland and I'm wondering how how hard it will be.

Pretty easy. Nothing compared to nuclear science!

Amazing amount of original material available online for free. Where else can you say that about?

https://registers.nli.ie/parishes/0313  IF they are yours and R.C

Hi Hallmark,

I clicked the link, the writing is rather bad and i cannot make out 95% of it.

Can you point me in the direction of of the actual Birth or marriage please i.e. the date so I can ry fathom out the hand writing.

Thanks in advance,

Try searching free indexes on FindMyPast & Ancestry as you have an idea of the parish, then check possibilities in registers. Bear in mind that some entries may have been incorrectly transcribed, some may be illegible,  and that the register may have years missing. If that doesn't work, you'll have to browse the registers. Although some registers are written in Latin, surnames were always in English.

This is still a long shot, but here is a John Mulholland - Mary McCormick couple with a child being baptized. I didn't find any for this couple from January 1848 down to this son in August 1852, and I haven't yet looked later than this.

But there could easily be more than one couple in Ireland with these first and last names.

Magherafelt Parish, Co. Londonderry, Catholic Baptism Register

August 15, 1852

Baptized Joannem Mulholland filium Joannis et Maria McCormick
witnesses maybe Hugo Bateson and Sarah Malone
marginal note: A Horish [ might be the priest's name. a different name occurred regularly in the margin. Too bad, sometimes they record the townland in the margin]

https://registers.nli.ie/registers/vtls000632614#page/59/mode/1up

As suggested in an earlier reply, I started at https://search.findmypast.ie/search-world-Records/ireland-roman-catholic-parish-baptisms and looked for any Mulholland, any date, with parents John and Mary. I picked Magherafelt because I had been looking there anyway, since there is a John Mulholland in Tamlaght O Crilly, and at least one McCormick in that area, on Griffith's.

Hi all,

Thanks all for the info so far.  I never posted against last night as I dropped off to sleep (long day at work) and today although I printed off the thread to make notes on this is the first chance I have had to respond.

I noted that a couple may have been married about 1740 are there no registers around then anywhere ?

As Archibald Henderson was a farmer and left the farm to his wife and daughter in the will is there any way to find out the name of the farm and whereabouts it was?

Thanks

Neil.
