Clare Library adds O'Callaghan Mills baptisms 1835-45

More than 2,500 transcriptions of baptism registers from O'Callaghan Mills parish, Diocese of Killaloe, Co Clare, have been donated to The County Library and are now available to view, free, on the library's Local Studies website.

The registers transcribed date from 1835 to 1845, the decade before the Famine. They are presented in date order (as per the registers) and also in alphabetical order.

The details provided are the child's name and date of baptism, first name and surname of father, first name and maiden name of mother, townland of residence, and names of sponsors.

Sharon Carbery of Virginia, USA, has transcribed the registers from the images now online at the National Library of Ireland's website.

Well done, Sharon!
