Irish StampMany of us can claim to be descended from those who left their Ireland to seek a better life elsewhere. Can you think of anything more enjoyable than spending a vacation in Ireland tracing your ancestral roots? Walk the paths they once walked, visit the old homestead, chat with the locals; do all of the things that you cannot do at a computer screen and bring back the emotional element, so often lacking in today's family research. Are you curious about the role your family has played in history? Why your ancestors departed their original birthplace? How you ended up - a generation or generations later - being where you are today? If you've ever thought of tracing your Irish roots, you're not alone; world-wide, there are an estimated 60 million people who claim Irish ancestry. Search for your ancestors’ birth, marriage and death records. Find Irish Ancestors quickly.

You can do this on your own at: o Genealogical Office, Dublin — operates consultation service on how to start a search o National Library, Dublin — extensive records and other genealogical materials o Public Record Office of Northern Ireland, Belfast — official records from 1820 onwards

1. What is a Location Search? If you know the county of origin of your Irish ancestor "The Location Search" identifies the place of origin, the townland or area of your ancestor within that county. Our "Location Search" is conducted using the main genealogical sources, the local expert knowledge and databases of the network of county-based Irish Family History Foundation centers or the services of a professional genealogist. Once the location has been identified we will then highlight this location for you on an Ordnance Survey Map and supply you with a professionally designed "Location Certificate," certified by the genealogist who conducted the research. This "Location Certificate" is very attractive when framed and hung at home or in the workplace.
2. What do I receive if the search is successful? {short description of image}Assuming a successful outcome you will receive : a) A personalized letter from the relevant county center or professional genealogist detailing the sources searched, the findings of the research and indicating where in the county the ancestor was born. The letter will also outline additional research which can be carried out which could lead to more extensive information on your ancestor's family. b) The "Location Certificate" which certifies the place of origin in the county of the ancestor, naming you or your nominee as a descendant. c) An Ordnance Survey Map of the county or town/city on which we will highlight the place of birth of your ancestor. d) All of the above will be posted to you in an attractive presentational folder with additional information on tracing your Irish roots and visiting Ireland. We will also give you suggestions for further avenues to pursue to find your Irish roots.

Ms Ellen McNulty

Dear Ellen

Thank you for your enquiry regarding your ancestor John Joseph McNulty who was born in 1877. His parents were Samuel McNulty and Elizabeth O Hara.

Before we begin, it is worth noting that the dates that record keeping began varied tremendously from Parish to Parish throughout County Sligo some starting as early as 1796, while others did not start until 1890. It must also be noted that there are 'gaps' in the records, owing to complete records books being discarded, lost or damaged. A typical Baptismal entry will specify the exact date of baptism, the name of the child and the names of the parents including very often the maiden name of the mother, the names of the sponsors and sometimes the street or townland.

I began your enquiry by checking the Baptismal Records for John Joseph McNulty. We did not limit our search to one Parish, as it is standard practice for us to search the entire County of Sligo, in all denominations. The following are the results of my search:

I found four children with a father listed as Samuel (he is listed as Simon on one record) McNulty and a mother listed as Elizabeth O Hara in Sligo town parish. One of those four sons was called John but he was born in 1872. The marriage registers were checked and I can confirm that a record was found for the union of Samuel McNulty and Elizabeth O Hara in Sligo in 1861. This record listed their address, the parish, witnesses and both the bride and grooms parent's names-Samuel's parents were James McNulty and Margaret Stephenson, Elizabeth's parents were John O Hara and Mary/Maria Hennessy. ...
Here is what we need from you:
Applicant's Details : Full Name : Phone : Address : (please include Street Address, Town/City and County/State) Fax : E-mail : Ancestor's Details : Child's Forename : Child's Surname : Father's Forename : Father's Surname : Mother's Forename : Mother's Maiden Surname : Approximate Year of Birth : Child's Religion : Any other Relevant Information :
