Not to be discouraging, but the reason that the LDS films start 5-6 years
later may be that the earlier records no longer exist. A month or so ago,
someone on the list was good enough to provide a listing by parish as to the
earliest records available. Perhaps if you are able to find that message,
you will know whether the information you seek is available.
In my search, I have also contacted the (Tyrone) Heritage Centre in
Dungannon ( http://www.irishroots.net/FnghTyrn.htm ). I sent them some
basic information on time frames, parishes, type of records required and
religious denomination, and they were good enough to respond with an e-mail
(1-2 days) as to whether the information was available. (e-mail:
However, I suspect that the reason LDS did not have records for the time
frame you seek is that the information is no longer available -- the joys of
searching in Ireland!

> I would like to try contacting the Catholic church in Fintona (I believe
it is St. Lawrence Church) to ask about my
ancestors(birth/baptismal/marriage records). My g grandfather, James G.
Carroll, was supposedly born there abt 1840/42. The LDS film of church
records for Fintona begins a half dozen years later. His father, Patrick
McCarroll, and mother Susan (McGough) McCarroll, supposedly lived on
Patrick's father's (James Carroll) farm in Fintona. The family immigrated
to U.S. abt 1850/51.

receptive to inquiries? How much $ should I send with the request? Is this
the right place to send an inquiry? Any other thoughts or advice?
