    3. Dear List In my search for WOOLAGHAN and similar names from County Tyrone I have mainly concentrated in the areas around Castlederg as that is where the greatest concentration lies. But there is a townland called Killywoolaghan in Ardboe parish, Co Tyrone and a Samuel WOOLAGHAN leased 8 acres of land including a house and office from the Trustees of John Mackey at Killywoolaghan, parish of Ardboe, County Tyrone in 1860. Map reference 38. He continuously occupied this property until 1898, when the reference to the occupiers changes to 'Reps', perhaps meaning representatives, and indicating that he may have died. The next change occurs in 1921 when the occupier is changed to Ezekiel Watters. I am wondering if anyone might be able to advise me whether there are any church records still in existence for this area, and if so, where we might be able to locate them? When we visited briefly last year the closet church we found was St Michaels Church of Ireland in Clonoe, but it was all locked up. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    3. Hi Fiona, I suggest you look up the PRONI website at https://www.nidirect.gov.uk/publications/proni-guide-church-records There are two PDFs to download which will advise you of all the available records. See also the Anglican Church website for online parish records https://www.ireland.anglican.org/about/rcb-library/online-parish-records Margaret in Oz.
