More County Clare RC baptism registers transcribed

New transcriptions of baptisms recorded in the Doora/Kilraghtis parish registers can now be viewed, free of charge, in the genealogy section of Clare County Library's website.

This Roman Catholic parish comprised three civil parishes: Doora, Kilragthis and Templemaley, and the baptism register holds 4,956 records dating from 1821 to 1881. They have been transcribed and donated by Sheila Duddy who notes that only the records in the first half or so of the register state the residence (usually the townland) and parish of the parents.

The records have been arranged in chronological order, in alphabetical order of the father's surname, and in alphabetical order of the mother's maiden surname. In each case, there are two files: 1821-1862 and 1862-1881.
