BAPTISM RECORDS 1881 - 1899

Please read all of the following carefully.

The following "copied" records (bottom of the page) are presented merely as an indicator, that there may be information contained in the original parish records, in which you are interested.

These records were copied by volunteers. The parish cannot and does not guarantee that they are accurate nor that they are complete.

These files are password protected. In order to gain access you need to email us at franciss@francisstreetparish.ie supplying your name and a genuine email address.

Access is granted on the understanding that you will not re-publish these records in any format whatsoever. The information is being made available for personal use. We stress again that we cannot and do not guarantee the accuracy or completeness of these "copied" records.

Should you find information within these records of interest to you, please contact the parish to check the accuracy of the records. Use this email address: sarah@francisstreetparish.ie You can request a search and have a certificate sent to you. There is no charge for this service, but we do recommend a donation of 20 for the upkeep of the Church.

When the parish issues certificates, it does so, based on the original records held in the parish.

The records have been divided up as you see them below, for your convenience. However, record keeping in the 1800's wasn't always done in a completely sequential manner. You might therefore need to search more than one batch of records.

The records are presented as pdf files. These will open if you have Adobe Reader on your computer. It is advisable to have the latest version of the software on your computer. You can find it here. Ensure that you are downloading the correct version for your operating system.

If you are searching for the name of someone who has been baptised, is is better to search for their family or surname. If you are searching for the parent of someone who has been baptised you can do so by entering first name and surname.

These files should be searchable in all browsers. The latest version of Internet Explorer seems to be slightly more useful for this purpose. When you open the files in either Firefox or Internet Explorer, a floating menu will appear. Click on the Adobe symbol on the right side of this menu and it will bring up the Adobe toolbars in the document. To search, click on the "binoculars" that you can see on the left of the page. In Google Chrome, you have to go into the tools section of the browser and click on "Find". The tools section is found at the top right corner of Google Chrome.
