Parish records do not all contain the same information – some list only the names of those directly involved in the event – some list the townlands or addresses of these people – some marriage records will list the names of the parents of those being married and the towland that they came from – while, then there are parish records that list only the names of the people inivolved in the event giving no indcation as to where they lived.

Where anything is known as to the state of the film – i.e. whether the script is esay to read, the ink faded, the entries clearly defined, then this information is listd on these pages – it will be added to as time goes by. Some indication is also give as to the information contained on the film, however, this can only be taken to refer to the time frame that the extracts cover as different Priests changed the format of their entries.

Please note, that while it may be very exciting to discovre that records exist for the parish you are interested in, continuously from the mid-1700’s to 1880 – do not place too much emphasis on that fact, records that are so old tend to be in bad condition, sometimes so faded as to be illegible. Unfortunately, the same, unfortunately can also be said for some records that were created in the mid-1800’s.

Note from Valerie re this film:
Film #1279226 Diocese of Ardagh & Clonmacnois
Parish of Cloghan & Banagher (St. Reynagh’s), King’s Co.

This film was much more readable. It contained Baptisms, marriages beginning in 1838 (I think) until at least 1904, and Confirmations right up until sometime in the 1950s.

The births had clearly defined columns for Baptismal date, given name(s), date of birth, parents’ names, sponsors and the priest’s signature. The years 1900 – 1904 were recorded in Latin and easy to read. Marriages showed bride and groom, names of fathers, sponsors and priest. Also in Latin, Addresses (at least the name of town) in some of the earlier years.

Note from Valerie re this film:

Film #926,091 – Registrations of Baptisms – Parish of Birr, King’s Co. Quite illegible, due to the quality of the writing years: 1874 – 1879. Most of the surnames were undecipherable, even with a magnifying glass. Only the names of the child, parents and sponsors were recorded. No addresses. The records were not organized, just sprawled across the pages. The language was English.
