Kilmacteige Records Page

FREE Ireland Research sources — research your Irish Ancestors. 

This is an ongoing list of free research sources on researching Irish Ancestor’s from South Sligo’s Kilmacteige Parish (Civil and Church) records!

KILMACTEIGE or KILMACTIGUE PARISH:

A strip of ancient rocks – gneiss, schist and granite – form the bedrock of the Ox Mountains. This wild area of uplands is covered largely with blanket bog. Some parts are extensively forested, whilst others have numerous outcroppings of rock. To the north and south the land is underlain by limestones and sandstones of Carboniferous age, and is generally farmland.

Below is the GSI  overview Map of South Sligo’s Kilmacteige Parish area (though it is NOT defined in the map) it is essentially the main area of Kilmacteige covered in this Site (as well as all Ireland by links) – The Sliabh Gamh  -or- Ox Mountains area, by Land Description, are described as:

Irish Ancestry research is not that difficult because of the limited records available. It is the same source records no matter where, or what County, in Ireland your researching Ancestors (with some exceptions).  The “South Sligo” area includes the Village of Aclare, Townlands of Lislea, Knockbrack, Claddagh, Tourlestrane, Banada, etc.. – The records here are from these areas, collected in more than a decade of researching Families from the area.

Many source records of  SOUTH SLIGO AREA OF KILMACTEIGE are hosted here in full .

Irish Ancestry research essentially starts with three (3) PRIMARY SOURCES  :

(1) 1901/1911 Irish Census, (census of Ireland-wide people/farms)

(2) Griffith’s Valuation, (a survey for tax purposes)

and

(3) Tithe “Defaulters” (Persons who would not pay, or “defaulted” on debt ordered by the Gov. to pay the “tithe” to the “Established Church (State Church) when Henry Tudor, (King Henry VIII) started the  “Established” Church (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Henry_VIII_of_England).

MAKE SURE YOU, RIGHT NOW, **KEEP TRACK OF YOUR WORK** – BE IT ON COMPUTER, OR WRITING ON PAPER- LISTING WHO, WHAT RECORDS, AND WHERE YOU SEARCHED  ! AND KEEP BACKUPS OF YOUR RECORDS - We cannot urge this enough !

As the Irish Gov. Genealogy Website states :

ONE RULE TO BIND THEM ALL:


As far as research is concerned, the only cast-iron rule is that you start from what you know and use it to find out more — think of yourself as a detective, taking each item of information as potential evidence and using it to track down more information that in turn becomes evidence for further research

Ireland is normally Five (5) HOURS ahead of the USA E.S.T., so make sure you not calling someone in the middle of the night – Morning in the US (EST) is the Best time to call Ireland and the UK. Calls are cheap now, especially with VOIP — less than a penny a minute !!

 

— IRISH RESEARCH STEPS AND SOURCE RECORDS —

 

THE KEYS TO IRISH ANCESTRY RESEARCH: are Surname and Townland, as well as the County of Residence (or Birth, or Marriage, or Death).

IF you know these Two things:  (Surname, and Townland) Then your research can start below.

There is no “secret” or “special” places to go if your a paid researcher - The records are the records and are listed by importance below.

THE below list of  Sources goes from the more useful first (Top Priority) to lesser, you should search or use the Sources  in that order (as it will get you the best results).

Finally,This is a marathon — NOT a sprint -- so take your time, do it right and verify everything your research !

 

Enough said- lets get to work with the Source Records

Why someone would pay for something that is available for free, I do not know. The reason for this post is they have missed persons ancestors in the past, are not through, and the issue of being set up primarily to capitalize on “tourist dollars” as opposed to doing a good job and offering value for money! If this changes and they get things together We will be the first to recommend them, but given our Ten (10)+ years experience researching Our Ancestors in Sligo — which includes many Cousins living there — We just cannot recommend them ! http://www.sligoroots.com/
