Re: [Bann Valley] Re: Burial records



Hi Linda;
The burial records are with the church records at PRONI, in my case I went to the church in Maghera and met with the archivist who was kind enough to have gone through the books before I got there and located the burials of the names that I was looking for. Unfortunately some of the burials at the St. Lurach's church are not noted on the burial records but yet the headstones and information are there, so important to check both. The marriage certificate I got through the Council office in Magherafelt. But the marriage records, baptismal records, death and burial records should all be at the PRONI and church as well. The PRONI is the best way to go as the books held at the churches are deteriorating. I went to the church as I wanted to look around the cemetary so I sent an e-mail in advance asking to meet up with the archivist. I was visiting in the area anyway as I had located the house # on the Valuation maps and was going to the land that my ancestors lived on. I did not bother anyone there by the way simply went to the road and looked at the land. That is something that I would like to see a discussion on somewhere - going to where your ancestors lived and knocking on people's doors. I don't agree with it myself, perhaps if you write ahead and they invite you but showing up and saying that my ancestors lived here and I'd look around -I think is in bad taste.
I am heading back in August again.
Lynn

Hello Lynn,
Can you be more specific about where you found the burial records? and how/why a marriage certificate was there, too? (if I'm reading your post correctly.).

Thanks,

~Linda S.
