Hello, and welcome!
I don't know the answer, but there is forum for Fermanagh, with resources listed in the top threads here at Rootschat:  https://www.rootschat.com/forum/fermanagh/

Hopefully you can find what you need there.  :)

Give a man a record and you feed him for a day.
Teach a man to research, and you feed him for a lifetime.

Welcome to Rootschat  :)

Civil registration of births, deaths & Catholic marriages started 1864 (from 1845 for non-Catholic marriages). So before those dates you'll need to find church records (if they exist). To do so you'll need an idea of location (parish if not actual townland not just 'Fermanagh') and religion. Not all churches have records before civil registration dates and of those that do not all are online. In general, only Church of Ireland kept burial registers although you might be lucky and find some elsewhere.

Have a look at these two topics-

There is a board for Fermanagh posts so I'll ask a moderator to move your thread there  :)
