History of Kilmacteige Parish, Sligo, Ireland.

Government registration of births and deaths began in 1864. In Kilmacteige, it appears the Church was doing this well before the Government requirements, as their records start about 1845 in the Roman Catholic Church of Tourlestrane.  Registration of Protestant marriages began in 1845, with all marriages being registered by 1864.
