The primary aim of the register is to avoid the possibility of duplication - I shudder at the thought of some poor person spending endless hours transcribing some register, only to discover that somebody else had already done it! So the Transcribers Register will allow prospective transcribers to declare their intentions and inform all and sundry as to which parish records are "in the pipeline."

For prospective transcribers I recommend that marriage registers be tackled first. I say that for two reasons, (a) marriage registers tend to be easier because they are generally smaller and less complicated than baptism registers;
and (b) I see advantages for researchers because a transcribed marriage register will enable quick location of a couple of interest and provide a starting point for a search for their offspring in a baptism register yet to be transcribed, and also for transcribers for it may be helpful when interpreting difficult entries in the baptism register.

Intending transcribers are encouraged to advise details of their project in this forum thread. Their project will then be added to the list.

Excellent idea Murf. FYI, I have transcribed the Sixmilebridge parish marriage register for 1829 to 1839. There are 365 marriages in total in the period. I need to view the hard copy here in Sixmilebridge to eliminate some of the doubtfuls before sending the transcription to the library.
As far as the Baptisms are concerned, I have completed years 1829 to 1832, these 4 years giving approx 650 entries. I intend to keep going until 1839.

Thanks for that
I will add your project to the list as soon as I work out what format it should take.
I know what you mean about doubtfuls. I have their number mounting up with the Clondagad/Kilchreest register. I was hoping that I may be able to reconcile some of them with the baptism register.

Hi murf

If it looks like I can manage the format, I will take the Rath-Kilinaboy marriages. They are in Latin but the priest stops short of trying to render the townlands (Garrynafuinseoige etc.) in Latin. The later marriages records (1862 - 1880) are a genealogist's dream: they give both parents' names and the townland. Anyone searching the early Rath-Kilinaboy baptism records should look at these later marriage records as well. In my own case, the later records correct a mistake made in the baptismal records - the mother's name and the godmother's name had been confused by the priest. Who can blame him - he probably hadn't had his breakfast.

Thanks Sheila, and good luck with that. You should be an accomplished Latin translator by the end of it.
I hope to have the register up and running shortly.

Transcribers frequently come across names that are difficult if not downright impossible to interpret. In the case of post 1863 marriages most of these issues can be resolved by cross-matching with the civil marriage indexes.
As an illustration this example comes from the Clondagad/Kilchreest Marriage Register of 27 May 1877. The Bride's name, Susan Barry was quite legible and unambiguous. The groom was John something, and the best I could do was "Honoon" which didn't seem right.
On the LDS search page at https://familysearch.org/search/collection/location/1927084 I inserted the bride's name Susan Barry.
I then clicked on Marriage and inserted:
Birthplace [killadysert] [tick] From [1877] To [1877]
Note that killadysert is the registration district and ticking the little box after it restricts the output to the Killadysert registration district for the year 1877.
Hitting the search button now returns only one marriage - of Susan Barry
We click on this and note the volume and page numbers - 9/155
Returning to the search page we now insert John for First Name and leave Last Name blank.
Click on Marriage in order to apply the same restrictions, then hit Search
This brings up 13 Johns married in the Killadysert Reg District in 1877.
Honan and Halloran are checked but have the wrong volume/page, but John Thomson is a match with 9/155.
Reference back to the microfilm confirms that this is a match.
Once one gets used to the method I find that this cross- checking process can be done quite quickly, and there is some satisfaction in resolving all those little doubts.

I have produced lengthy transcriptions of the CARRIGAHOLT Catholic Marriages & Baptisms Registers covering 1852/3 to March 17th 1878, and on to 1881. The KILBALLYOWEN Civil Parish is mostly aligned with that CROSS Catholic Parish, which was separated off about Feb/March 1878 from the Carrigaholt Catholic Parish which roughly aligns with the MOYARTA Civil Parish. Two churches in each.
There are about 930 marriages & 4,000 baptisms.
Covering from Kilbaha & Moneen to Querrin & Doonaha & Moveen to Cross & Carrigaholt villages.

I started way back before 2009 for my own personal benefit, and the two files are in the original date order, in a WORD.docx format which allows keyword searches {Control/F} of the 4,000-odd pages.
I have tried to standardize the spelling to help WordSearch : Catherine, Patrick, Honora, Laurence etc.

I hoped to eventually format them into an EXCEL-type spreadsheet, but the files have had many extra local parish & general history notes added which some researchers may find useful to point them in good directions.
I am still improving & reworking the entries & grouping them into families with contact links to modern-day descendants.
The latest DRAFT versions are too big(1.7MB & 7.7MB) to upload here, which has a 1MB limit.
If anyone might find them a useful basis for study, we'll try to work something out?

I'm aware that on the Facebook "IGP's County Clare Ireland Genealogy Group" are some good people who have & are also completing transcriptions: Kilmaley is one such area.

ENNIS area (often known as St Senan's, but including sub-churches) is on www.EnnisParish.com/Genealogy = about 55,000 names total of Marriages after 1837 & Baptisms after March 27th 1841, but no Sponsors' or Witnesses' names, or townlands. Spellings are uncorrected, and raw EXCEL files are available.

Hi Murray
Nice to hear about your progress with the Carrigaholt records. I have already seen your listing of the marriage register (1852-1878) on the library website, together with your copious notes. These provide a valuable resource.
For the benefit of other forum members the link is:
http://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclar ... olt_rc.htm
It would be nice if we could get these and the baptisms into EXCEL format along similar lines to the excellent work by Sheila over recent months.
I shall contact you by email to see if I can assist.
Cheers, murf
