My G. Grandfather Edward McElwee was born in Naran, Donegal on Dec.25,1856.
His parents were George and Isabel Maxwell McElwee. It is my understanding
that the records of non-Catholics were not recorded until 1864. Is there
another way I can obtain a record of his birth? I'm not sure just what his religion
was but is there a list of churches in Naran that I can inquire to see if his
birth was recorded through a church? Thanks for any help I can get.

Still searching for parents, siblings of Alexander, Fitzgerald and Jane
Anderson born 1795-1805 in Letterkenny. They were children of ???? (perhaps James)
Anderson and Lady (perhaps Mary or MaryAnn) Fitzgerald. These three children
were in Quebec, Canada before1825, but without their parents.
Their maternal grandfather was Lord Fitzgerald, but I have not been able to
find which family of Fitzgeralds this might be.
Any help or suggestions much appreciated. Jane Stephenson in New Hampshire,
Hi all. Am looking for information on the McGrorty family from Donegal. I

You know the Happy Dance ? Its the one you see whan a kid gets a
popsicle or a genealogist get a new name to research. Well, I've got
TWO new surnames to find ! HASLETT and FYFFE and I'm doing the Happy
Dance today !
New microfilms [OK, they've been here 8 weeks and I've just gotten to
them] show 2 ALLEN marriages I'd not known about. I'm sure its the right
family, there couldn't be more than a handful of people living at
Polnaranny east of Ballintra with the same father's name.
Joseph ALLAN of Polnaranny married Elizabeth CRAWFORD from Tievebrack in
1831. They had children but up to now I've only known of George ALLAN
[or ALLEN] born 1836 who happened to marry Margaret MURRAY [spelling
change from MORROW] in Campsie, Stirlingshire, Scotland in the magic
year of 1855. Thats how I came to know where he was born, 1855 was the
best year possible for getting information in a B, D or M registration.
Today I've found 2 of his sisters who married in Donegal :
