Re: LYNCH, Jeremiah & Rebecca - Chicago Illinois
I searched the Irish Family History Foundation's database. It contains 12,000,000 surviving rcds for abt 65% of Irish counties. Rcds are increasingly sparce B4 1840, rare B4 1800. Without a known county, the chance that your ancestors are in this database is AT LEAST 35%.
For Jeremiah Lynch B 1825 +/- 4 yrs, I found 14 B rcds, all in Co. Cork (north&east). Suggest you search census rcds to get an exact date. Also search naturalization papers for his parents' names, etc.
For John Lynch B 1825 +/- 4 yrs, I found 162 B rcds, mostly in Co. Cork. Ditto.
For the surname Delmage (exact) B/M ????, I found 0 B and 0 M rcds. Suggest you search church and civil rcds to find the correct maiden name.
For a possible marriage in Ireland in 1851 +/- 2 yrs for Jeremiah, I found 5 M rcds: 2-1849 Cork, 1850 Dublin, 1852 Cork, and 1853 Cork.
Google the Foundation's name to lead you to this database. Register, opt to be notified as rcds are added and browse. Pls post your search results to my genforum msg.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
