Family History Report

Family reports vary from family to family so these pages only give a brief idea of what to expect. The details on these pages are for illustration only and don't refer to a real family.



Introduction and abbreviations




The Kelly family of Carrowlisconnor, Ballymore, County Mayo

See sample page 2 and page 5




The Prendergast family of Mullaghbaun, Ballymore, County Mayo




Notes on the possible families of origin of the enquirer's early female ancestors





Facsimiles included with the report

  • Map of Ireland showing the location of County Mayo and the town of Ballymore.


  • Map of County Mayo showing the location of the town of Ballymore with the approximate location of the townlands of Carrowlisconnor and Mullaghbaun highlighted.


  • Map of the civil parishes of County Mayo with the boundary of Kilbride (Ballymore) highlighted.


  • Extract of townland map, on scale of one inch to one mile, with civil parish boundaries shown in black. The boundary of Kilbride parish is highlighted in orange. The townlands of Carrowlisconnor and Mullaghbaun are highlighted in yellow. Other townlands mentioned in the report are also shown.


  • General Valuation of Rateable Property in Ireland (1856); extracts for the townlands of Carrowlisconnor and Mullaghbaun showing details of the landholdings of Michael Kelly and Patrick Prendergast, the enquirer's ancestors. The General Valuation lists every person, who held a house or parcel of land, in the country, and gives a brief description of the holding/tenement, the landlords name and the valuation of the property. It was undertaken to assess the value of every tenement in the country as the basis for local taxation.


  • Census of population of Ireland (taken on Sunday, 31st March 1901); Form B1 and household returns for Carrowlisconnor, house number 9, Michael and Bridget Kelly's. This is the earliest surviving census of population for the entire country. Though a census was taken every ten years from 1821, those returns for this part of the country were destroyed in 1922. Ages on these returns are notoriously suspect, especially for older people whose ages are often "rounded-off' to the nearest multiple of five or ten.
