Baptism 1837 TIMONEY Leitrim & Sligo, need an image of the page
« on: Saturday 24 April 21 16:24 BST (UK) »
Hello
www.Ancestry is giving me this info:

     John Timoney
     Baptised 21 June 1837 Leitrim and Sligo
     Father: James

which is apparently taken from Kilmore/Kinlough records 1835 - 1860.

PROBLEM: the accompanying scan of the page is so faint & illegible that I can't verify the record.

Request: Do you have an image (from a different family history site, for instance) which can be read? I'm looking for the mother's name also.

Many thanks, Dulciebun

looks like the register has faded - so also very difficult to read on the NLI

Thank you for telling me.
However, someone must have had enough confidence in reading the page to log the name & exact date and father's name too...

I've noticed that scans etc sometimes bleach out details which you can see if you're up close & personal with the original page.

Where might the original record be kept? And how might it be viewed? (I'm not in Ireland.)
