Kilmihil RC Baptism Registers 1870-1881
The handwriting is not at all clear and my first draft was full of question
marks, so I used the index at the beginning of the register (made by Fr.
Gaynor in 1945) to amend it. On a few occasions I checked the civil records.
These transcriptions are not intended to replace Fr. Gaynor’s index,
which is more useful that my transcriptions in a number of ways:
1. Because he was transcribing from the register
itself, Fr. Gaynor was able to read those entries at the bottom of pages,
which are too dark for me to read.
2. He uses the modern version of names and brings together all the variants.
He also brings names that begin with “O’” together with
those that omit the O’ (i.e. Halloran and O’Halloran) and
he treats Carthy and McCarthy as the same name.
3. He realises that children born out of wedlock may be known by either
the father’s name or the mother’s name and so lists those
children under both names.
4. He occasionally includes other useful notes.
