Fenagh
Baptisms
June 5th 1825 – Oct 13th 1829
Script is clear: Child’s name, parents, sponsors. The last entries on any line and the ends of the pages are shaded, which can make it difficult to read the spellings. The entries are in English

There are some entries for 1841 just after the 1829 entries – two pages or so, the script on those is spidery and more difficult to read than the earlier entries.

Baptisms Nov 24th 1834 – April 12th 1843 follows the few pages of 1841 entries.
These baptisms are in Latin, the writing is generally legible through the ten years. In parts the ink is faded.

Baptisms : June 5th 1843 – Nov 4th 1852
Marriages: Oct 4th 1826 – Feb 18th 1832
Marriages Jan 15th 1835 – March 22nd 1842
Deaths June 1825 – Feb 21st 1832
Deaths Nov 24th 1834 – Dec 21st 1841

These entries are in Latin. The whole set of records is variable in that some pages are reasonably easy to read and others are almost impossible, either due to the script, the ink or the fact that they are in Latin. The death entries are all single lines. The townlands are not named, only dates, names and surnames for this section.

Baptisms Nov 22nd 1852- Dec 9th 1880
Marriages: Jan 17th 1844 – Feb 9th 1880
These records are in English, the townland is named, the entries are spaced.

There is an index to the Baptismal register for this parish, following on the parish records themselves as on the film. It is handwritten, single line entries, with the year of the baptism given for each name. Again, it is faded in spots and the writing can be difficult to read. The edges and ends of the pages are either shaded or faded.

Mohill
Baptisms
June 11th 1854 – Dec 23rd 1880
(also workhouse Baptisms 1846-1855)

The first two pages are actually a communion register – it’s easy enough to read. Well spaced. One year only. 1836 it gives the child’s name, parents name and sponsors names.

This got me wondering – today, groups of children make their communion on the same say – on this register there is a different date for each child, a few days to a few weeks apart. Was this the norm? Why? Until a few years ago, children here made their communion at about age 7, could it be that children made their communion when they were a certain age? Could the date on this register be the birthday for these children?

Anyone have any ideas on this? I’ve never seen a communion register before

Page three and these would seem to be the Workhouse Baptisms as they stop in 1855. The children’s names are in Latin. The writing is spidery, difficult to read and the Priest was saving paper, trying to get as much as he could onto each page.
The edges of the pages are shaded making entries at the side and bottom illegible in most instances.

The general baptismal register begins after the Workhouse one. The script is different, the capital letters being ‘flowery’ (spread all over the place) and the rest of the script is less legible. In Latin, names and no townlands
Marriages
August 28th 1854 – July 19th 1879
Burials
May 22nd 1854 – July 27th 1879

All very difficult to read – priests economising on paper, writing bad, edges of pages shaded. No townlands mentioned. In Latin, names – child, parents, sponsors.
