Are English Catholic Parish Registers available?

I can't see them on FMPast.

Hi Kath,

There are very few Catholic records online, but here are some from the Lancashire area that I use regularly:

It's also worth checking the Lancashire Online Parish Clerk site as they too now have some Catholic records:

Hope that helps a little,

Sorry but forgive my ignorance what does NLI mean?

I know some Irish RC records are already online in Ancestry as I found relatives baptism records in Maryborough (Portlaoise).

Have you got a link to the website please?

Regards

Steve

I would post the link - but I can't get a working one to make sure it's the right one.

I have Irish ancestors. From Dublin. It's the one arm of the family I've not researched further back than 1841. I found them all ok on the census through the years, but prior to that I only know they moved from Dublin to Manchester (then .clitheroe by 1841). The thought of searching Irish records has been daunting - until now :D

I've had a quick look and, despite not knowing which parish to look at, I'm hoping it won't be too onerous a task to search through all the different parishes. Of course, whether I get the right Patrick Quinlan born in 1799, and that the given dates and places are right, is a bit of a fingers' crossed job!

Thanks for ketting us know!

Try http://registers.nli.ie/

Quoting from the website "This website contains images from the NLI’s collection of Catholic parish register microfilms. The registers contain records of baptisms and marriages from the majority of Catholic parishes in Ireland and Northern Ireland up to 1880".

Cheers

Hello Kim.

You might want to try this other Irish Gov site. They have the RC and COI church records for Dublin City online and they are indexed and searchable through their database.

Hi there Kim, it scrabbled my head last night and the eyes ached as well, I'm at the same point in time 1799/1805, but and its a massive but I am not certain of the parish although I'm as near as I can get. I know they where in London by 1841 in London, plus I don't know whether they were RC or COI or even non conformists.

Oh well its a start.

Cheers Roger.
