    I have found, in the 1861 birth registration of one of their sons, a date of marriage for a Charles McQuillan and Helen Doran in Annaclone, County Down. This was recorded as having taken place on November 14, 1835. Can anyone at all suggest a way of verifying this fact and, perhaps, even locating birth entries for these two people?
    Regards and thanks,
    Sheryl

    Hi Sheryl,

    First port of call would be the Annaclone History website:
    Code:
    http://www.annaclonehistory.com/
    Take a look at the Annaclone page of GENUKI as well. :)

    Hi Jan,
    Thanks so much for these links. I have had a good look around to see if I can see anything -- but nothing so far! I have sent a message to the Annaclone History personnel to follow up. I appreciate your help!
    Regards Sheryl

    Good luck Sheryl. What religion was your ancestor? Roman catholic records available for annaclone - baptisms 1834-1913 after 1913 held by church only.
    Burials 1851-1913
    Marriages 1851-1913
    But be warned, some of these records could be damaged and you may get partial information.
    COI records -
    Baptism 1877-1900
    Burial 1877-1900
    Marriage 1845-1900

    It is spectacularly amazing how this family detective work leads us down trails both familiar and new. A recent DNA match has revealed a previously unknown (to our line of the family!) daughter of the above Charles McQuillan and Ellen Doran. Her family had had her birthplace passed down in family stories so we now have a birth place for a Mary Ann and a James McQuillan, children of Charles and Ellen. They were born in Aghaderg, County Down. Now I have a place to begin the search for a marriage!! These are exciting times.
