Beginning March 2nd, 2020 the Mailing Lists functionality on RootsWeb will be discontinued. Users will no longer be able to send outgoing emails or accept incoming emails. Additionally, administration tools will no longer be available to list administrators and mailing lists will be put into an archival state.
Administrators may save the emails in their list prior to March 2nd. After that, mailing list archives will remain available and searchable on RootsWeb
I would check the Griffith Valuation (GV) and check to see if they are
what you are looking for. Next the only records available (other than
part census/and other documents) are the Church Record Books (OPR). Now
you have to find out if the OPRs are available for that church. If so
have the LDS made copies of the documents, if so then order the films
into your local FHC and start checking for all the names you are
interested in. Some FHC have the processor to convert films info into
CD format, if not then a good method is to take photos of the data with
a digital camera. If this is not an option then hand write each entry
or use the photo copier. There are estate records for a few places in
Ireland, but one would have to check the LDS catalog or NLI to see what
Tithe Applotment Books = TAB
Do a Google for info regarding the TABs or in fact any question you have
just enter a few prime words and hit enter, if not happy then reenter
some other prime word, eventually you will hit pay dirt
LDS Catalog Ireland Holding: (tiny URL format)
In ""general"" any documents before Civil Registration (1864 BDM in
general, see the LDS catalog) will required you to find an entry in a
for your family. Some church documents give very little information,
depends upon what the priest/minister wanted to put into the register.
Website "From Ireland" has a large amount of data embedded and some
good explanations of various documents out of Ireland.
If you are looking for other than Donegal areas of Ireland then a visit
to the Y-IRL mailing list may be in order.
Also these sites may give you some information:
Not an in-depth explanation but covers the basics.

I doubt if Rossbeg had a church in 1810. The maps I have, based on the 1st
and 2nd series of six-inch maps from the 1830-40 time period do not show a
church there. The nearest Church of Ireland church would have been in Naran,
about 3 miles to the ENE of Rossbeg. The nearest RC church would have been in
Kilclooney village, about 3-1/2 miles east of Rossbeg. There are still existing
churches at these locations. I have no information on the C of I church, but
the Kilclooney church is in the parish of Ardara, under the
www.raphoediocese.com website. This is a new church - 1864 - but apparently built on the site
of an earlier church. They might still retain the records of the previous
church. I'm operating in deep water here, as I know very little about church

I would like to know what churchs are/would have been in 1810 in the County
of Donegal, Poor Law Union of Glenties, Barony of Boylagh, Parish of Inishkeel,
Townland of Rossbeg. How can I contact the clergy of said churchs? Searching
for Michael Nicholson.
For those who may not receive the Rootsweb Review the following
information should be of interest.
The first is Rootsweb moving day for Lists, the second is a source of
information on very early Californians at the Huntington Library, this
should interest most researchers looking in Calf and 3rd is where to
join the RW Review.
Have a nice day
1. As most know Rootsweb has started their migration to the new
mailing list format. Below is a copy of the note from Rootsweb review
MOVING DAY FOR LISTS
The RootsWeb.com mailing lists are moving to a new list management
system. However, all the lists won't be updated at once. It will take
about two weeks to complete the process. Additional information about
the update and a current schedule can be found at
How will it affect you? Your current subscription(s) will transfer
automatically to the new system so there will be no need to re-subscribe
to your list(s). However, because the sending and receiving of list e-
mail will be handled by a new system, you may notice a few changes to
your list(s). Digest subscribers will notice a small difference in the
layout, volume and issue numbers of the list digests.
The "-L" is being dropped from the "official" list name. This means the
"from" address your mailing list e-mails come from will be different --
ListName(a)rootsweb.com vs. the current ListName-L(a)rootsweb.com. You may
have to adjust your spam filters or put the new address on your "accept"
list to prevent messages from being caught in your "junk" folders.
The tools that list administrators use to manage their lists are
changing also. If you are a list admin, you will be contacted in a
separate e-mail with more details and a link to a tutorial.
RootsWeb appreciates your patience during this transition and hopes that
the mailing lists will continue to be a valuable tool in your genealogy
2. Early California Population Project:
The Early California Population Project (ECPP) is a comprehensive
database of the sacramental registers -- the baptismal, marriage, and
death records -- from California's 21 missions. For the first time ever,
scholars and the general public alike can access a database that delves
into the historical records documenting the lives of some 110,000
Californians between 1769 and 1850, the Huntington Library, Art
Collections, and Botanical Gardens announced recently. The database can
withstand queries and sorts of more than 230 fields, which include
general categories such as the names of the individuals as well as
specific data such as ethnicity, cause of death, and military status.
All Spanish spellings and abbreviations have been preserved, although
field names are in English. For best results examine the "sample search"
and "search tips" before you begin a search.

I am new to this list and am researching a branch of the BRITTON family that arrived in Australia around 1840.
William BRITTON married Mary MOONEY in Pettigo, Donegal around 1830. They had five sons, Thomas, William, Patrick Bernard and Charles and a daughter Ellen when they arrived in Australia. The place of birth of the children is unclear.
Mary was born in London and her father Bernard Thomas MOONEY is recorded as being a Master Mariner.
The family settled on a property in New South Wales and became graziers,. One of the son's William became a successful storekeeper in a town called Quirindi.
I am seeking any information guidance or assistance to further this search.
From Sunny CAIRNS in Tropical North Queensland Australia.
TheGV data on the website has a major link error in the "C" surnames.
During the change over from one web design prgm to another I forgot to
add /link many of the C Surnames, (anthing after Conohoe) This will be
corrected within the next few days.
