I wonder if there is any other places I can look for Kilvine, Cllarmorris, Mayo  BMD records.  I have  roots, Ancestry, FMP subscriptions and have used NLI and irishgenealogy.  I can't find RC baptism before 1865 or so.  My g-grandfather Augustine Hu(v)ane was born about 1846 and he married Catherine Scahill from ballydonlon, Dunmore Galway (I have found her baptism in 1853 and 1 sister who emigrated to Australia.  Not sure if there were others. 

Did Kilvine use other parishes or are the earlier records missing or non existent? 

I have all Augustine's children as they were all born in Galway, but I was hoping to find more of Augustine's sibs.  I know of 2 brothers families, Stephen, James and possibly Patrick.  I have been making educated guesses for his sisters, but would love to confirm. His mother was Catherine Heneghan and I think she was also from Kilvine and married Augustine is father, James Hu(v)ane.  

Aprreciate any thoughts , thanks, Mary

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    The RC records for Kilvine parish start in 1870 based on the information on the subscription site Roots Ireland. Likely earlier records were lost. 

    Civil birth records should be available for children born in the parish 1864 or later. 

    Here is a link to the Facebook page for the parish   and the RC parish web site
