Brennan Surname in Louisburgh Roman Catholic Parish Records, County Mayo, Ireland

The Louisburgh Roman Catholic Parish Records are covered in two different microfilms: Microfilm Number 1279212 items 3 and 4 and Microfilm Number 926224 Items 1 and 2. Microfilm Number 1279212 is listed as covering the following according to the LDS website: "Baptisms, 1894-1919; marriages, 1844-1845 (copy); marriages, 1906-1922; baptisms, 1850-1872 (copy); baptisms, 1906-1922." I am currently working my way through item 3 of this film. Louisburgh Roman Catholic Parish was previously referred to as Kilgeever and includes part of Kilgeever Civil Parish in County Mayo. I will order Microfilm 926224 at some later date. I have a page specifically on the Town of Louisburgh in my County Mayo Market Town section.

Summary of Findings for Item 3 of Microfilm 1279212: There were no Brennans documented as being baptised in Item 3 of this Microfilm nor were there any Brennans who sponsored baptisms.

Summary of Findings for Item 4 of Microfilm 1279212: Some of the earlier original records of Item 4 are nearly impossible to read! I have completed this item and have identified only one Brennan family in this film, Cicely Brennan and John Malley. Their daughter, Honor was baptized in February 1856 in this Roman Catholic Parish. I didn't find any other children's baptisms in this film. Keep in mind that there is another LDS microfilm for this Catholic Parish (926224) that may contain additional Brennan records. I will be ordering that film at a later date.

I have done my best to correctly transcribe these records, but after five or so hours behind a microfilm reader, the likelihood of mistakes in both interpretation and transcription most certainly increases. I have the microfilm and item numbers on which the records were found so you can confirm the information. In an attempt to minimize download times I have limited the information presented on each family. The records in this section will document Baptisms (B) and Marriages (M). I also have documented all of the baptisms and marriages sponsored/witnessed by Brennans; although these are not included online, they can yield valuable clues such as "circles of friends" and possible Townlands that might provide a missing link. There are additional details in these records such as date of birth, sponsors, priests, and at times notes in the margin detailing marriages and deaths. If you feel that your family is in this compilation, please feel free to contact me and I will share with you the additional details.
