  • Roman Catholic Baptism Records for Kilmaley Parish: Transcribed from an LDS microfilm of the register pages and donated by Beryl Meehan, these records date from September 1828 to March 1882. The record set is not complete ie it doesn't include every entry in the register. Nonetheless, the transcription includes about 650 records.
  • Miltown Malbary National School Roll Books: The roll books for girl pupils dates from 1895 to 1925, while the book for boys dates from 1896 to 1925. Both are searchable by surname and date. The records were transcribed by Brian Doyle and Peter Beirne from the Library's Local Studies Centre.
