FIND MY PARISH FAQs

FAQ#1: All I have on record is "Roscommon"...

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

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

 

NOTE: In 1898 the boundaries of Counties Galway, Mayo, Roscommon, Sligo (and others) changed for some townlands and parishes. If your ancestor emigrated before that date, their records may be logged in a neighboring county today.
