How to link in with your ancestral County or Parish Community depending on what you know...

We're here to help you discover more about where your Mayo ancestor came from. See below for a QUICK FIND list of Mayo towns and villages with direct links to their civil parish.



1. All I have on record is "Mayo"...

If your ancestor was from County Mayo (and that's all you know)

  • Ask our local volunteers on the Mayo Message Board to discover more.

  • add your Ancestor to our County Mayo Ancestors roll-call

  • You can always EDIT your Ancestor Chronicle later (to LINK them to their Parish of origin when you learn more).

If your ancestor was from "Mayo Parish" ... join the civil parish of Mayo (Mayo)
