Comments: Hello, great website. I'm looking for birth records for Alexander McCamish approx date 1810. He married Isabella Davison/Davidson in Ballyclog 1834 and had 7 sons, Adam, Robert, James, John, Maxwell and Joseph. He died in Ballyclog in 1875. His son John came to Australia in 1866. I would appreciate some help in locating birth and marriage records for Alexander.
I have found him on the Griffiths valuation, and have his death certificate but the rest is a mystery.
There are some who believe he is from the American McCamish line from the book McCamish, Three Brothers in Colonial America by Linda M Merle. I'm not sure.

Comments: I am a descendant of folks from Raphoe Parish, County Donegal, Henry Allen and Barbara Stevenson. I plan to visit Donegal in September with my family and I am trying to determine where exactly my great-great parents lived. I have some church records for Henry Allen (born approx. 1814) that record his first marriage - April 16, 1838 to Barbara Stevenson, by the Rev. John P. Dickey at the Carnone, Presbyterain Church. Their 4 children were baptized there also - from 1840 - 1846. (William, Henry James, Susan and Sarah). Apparently Barbara died and in November 1850 Henry married Catherine Flood - same church/parish location. They then left for the United States.
Is that Parish church still active? I would like to be able to find it. The changing of names of locations since that time - early-mid 1800s- is proving confusing for me, at least in finding what the current place names are. If you could point me to some local resource/person, I should be glad of the help. Many Thanks!

Comments: Searching for town or parish where Joseph Liget/Liggit/Ligget had farm between 1790-1818. He emigrated to USA in 1818-1819 with son William (born 1801). Before 1830 his wife Jane and daughters Jane, Mary, and Elizabeth also emigrated to USA. Looking also for possible older sons of Joseph who may have stayed on farm in county Tyrone.

Comments: In working on the ancestry of the Hamiltons, I've just stumbled upon a Word.doc entitled "Dunn/Hamilton Relationship [N.Tyrone Dunn Families]" The document is undated and unsigned, but I am certain that the author was James Dunn Laird and I believe the work dates from no earlier than 2017.
I have subsequently learned that of Lord James Dunn Laird, who passed away in 2018, and that he has provided important information concerning the Hamiltons acknowledging that his cousin of the same name, from Glenagoorland, was also an expert contributor to that branch of the family. It is the James Dunn Laird of Glenagoorland, who was working on DNA connections with his American relatives, with whom I would like to exchange information. I would much appreciate any assistance in making contact.

Comments: My great great Grandmother, Maria Gordon, was married in Newtonstewart in 1865 to John Duncan. I have a copy of the marriage record which records her father's name but not her mothers. Does anyone know how I can find this? I can not find a birth certificate either for Maria Gordon.
