Latest update for Kilmurry Ibrickan takes collection to 5,800 baptism records

County Clare Library has added more transcriptions of Roman Catholic baptism registers to its free website.

The new transcriptions are for the coastal parish of Kilmurry Ibrickan and date from 1866 to 1871. They have been donated by Marie Crowley of Derry City in Northern Ireland who is working from a microfilm copy of the register via the LDS Church. Her transcriptions for this parish now span 1839 to 1871 with only one major gap: the complete year of 1851. I estimate a total of 5,800 records transcribed.

Each of the entries includes the child's name and date of baptism, the father's name and surname, the mother's name, and the name of sponsors. The mother's maiden surname and the parent's townland is also presented in all but a handful of cases.

I estimate a total of 5,800 transcriptions now available for this parish.You can search them here.
