County Monaghan baptisms now on RootsIreland

RootsIreland (www.rootsireland.ie) has now uploaded 32,000 baptism records for County Monaghan in Ulster, meaning that all of the Ulster counties now have some representation on the database.

The Monaghan records include material for the following parishes, all of them Roman Catholic:

Carrickmacross (1858-1870, 1878-1880)
Donaghmoyne (1841-1858, 1863-1878)
Drummully-Currin (1845-1881)
Ematris (1848-1876)
Errigal Truagh (1835-1852, 1861-1893)
Inishkeen (1845-1846, 1863-1887)
Magheross (1858-1880)
Monaghan (1847-1900)
Tydavnet (1835-1880)

Further material is promised in due course, though it is not clear whether this will include non-Roman Catholic sources.

This is a hopeful sign. My ancestry in Monaghan is not Catholic (alas!) but hopefully they will turn their attention to other denominations when done with the Catholic records.

Or perhaps not. Tyrone's records are mostly Catholic and they've not updated in YEARS.

Ah well. One can hope.
