Surviving records for Desertcreat Parish Church have been microfilmed by the staff of PRONI, Belfast, where they may be consulted:

 

Baptisms, 1812-73 and 1879-1995; marriages, 1812-71; burials, 1812-1960; vestry minutes, 1740-1901; confirmation lists, 1828 and 1840: PRONI Ref: MIC1/9; MIC583/1

 

Notes on attendances, baptisms and marriages and a list of clergy, 1829-46: PRONI Ref: CR/1/10

 

Confirmation list, 1870: PRONI Ref: DIO/432/D5//7/1

 

The condition of the original records, a degree of difficulty in discerning the handwriting and at times, poor quality of filming make transcription challenging and wherever possible, the Desertcreat (1825) tithe applotment book and Griffiths Valuation (c1860), Index to Townlands and Towns, Parishes and Baronies in Ireland (1851) and Heather, Peat and Stone-O’Kane have been consulted for confirmation of families and townland addresses. Original spelling has been retained.
