Ireland Gotoarrow.png County Mayo

County Mayo.jpg

County Mayo (Irish: Contae Mhaigh Eo) is a county in Ireland. It is located in the province of Connacht. The county town is Castlebar.

Contents

General County Research Information

Further information about County Mayo is available at:

Archives and Libraries

Online resources:

  • Irish Times, also lists all county Heritage Centres' addresses

Cemeteries

A considerable number of cemeteries in County Mayo have been transcribed and published. Some of these are available online. Here's a list:

Census

Census records for County Mayo (and Ireland in general) were mostly destroyed prior to 1900.

The following web site provides researchers with free on-line access to an index, with images, to the only two complete censuses available for Ireland: the 1901 and 1911 censuses, available at the National Archives of Ireland

Church Records

Church of Ireland

The Representative Church Body Library has all surviving Church of Ireland registers. Some copies are held at:

  • the local parish
  • local archives and libraries
  • FHL (Family History Library) has few transcription copies of Church of Ireland parishes

Presbyterian

The vast majority of Presbyterian chapel registers have never been centrally archived, and thus are found in various locations. [Regretably, preservation of these precious records and the rich Presbyterian heritage of local Presbyterians as well as descendants of same, at large whose roots originate from Ireland, are at risk unless and until such time as when these registers are all copied into at least microform or, better--a digitized format.]

You must conduct exhaustive, thorough studies to determine to which Presbyterian denomination your ancestor belonged; and to then, determine the whereabouts of surviving registers--if any. The following most likely places to start your search to find and search Presbyterian registers starts with checking at the following locations:

  • the local Presbyterian congregation/church (if still in use)
  • distant Presbyterian chapels (if the local chapel closed)
  • town libraries
  • county archives/libraries
  • PRONI (Public Record Office of Northern Ireland)
  • The National Archives, Dublin
  • The National Library of Ireland

Other:

  1. The excellent rootsireland web site for County Mayo has some Presbyterian data now available online for 7 different chapels; some from as early as 1819.
  2. The FHL (Family History Library) has but few transcription copies of Presbyterian chapels

Methodist

The rootsireland web site for County Mayo has some Methodist data now available online for about 5 different chapels in the county from as early as 1829.

Roman Catholic

The FHL (Family History Library) has several copies of the original Roman Catholic parish registers of County Mayo parishes in its collection. You can identify these listed online at FamilySearch.org. IF you know the name of the civil parish in which your Catholic ancestor resided, or was from, click "Catalog" and type in the name of the parish and then highlight/click on "Church Records".
The National Library, Kildare Street, Dublin, is the custodian of all available Roman Catholic parish registers from throughout the country--including County Mayo.

The rootsireland.ie web site has data from numerous Roman Catholic parishes now online for searching. There are fees attached (about $7 for each entry).

Useful Church Records Web Sites

  1. GenWeb Ireland - has numerous online links to data-rich lists of Mayo County families
  2. Aghamore and Knock Roman Catholic Parish data online from 1864, on (only)
  3. Mayo Ancestors has lots of County Mayo ancestors listed mostly in the 19th C.
  4. John Grenham's web site has several helpful links for Mayo names
  5. Mayo County Surname Query board is here
  6. CMCRP Project (Mayo) - has a few records for the county
  7. Civil Registration of births marriages and deaths for County Mayo, online, 1864, on
  8. Ireland Civil Registration of (Protestant) Marriages 1845-1863 at FamilySearch.org
