On the front page of Ancestry they have an announcement that they now have Roman Catholic parish registers 1742 – 1884 online. At the moment if you click the link it takes you no-where, but I am sure in the next few hours that they will be online. I have noticed this before with Ancestry the announcement goes up followed by the link a few hours later – no doubt different departments!!
Anyway good news for those with Irish ancestry. Go online click the link and when it starts working you never know who you might find!!
