Corcoran Surname in Castlebar Roman Catholic Parish Records, County Mayo, Ireland
The Castlebar Roman Catholic Parish Records are covered in microfilm #1279212 items 1 and 2. The film is listed in the LDS film catalog as Parochial Registers of Castlebar, 1824-1984 Catholic Church, Parish of Castlebar. Castlebar Roman Catholic Parish covers three Civil Parishes: Aglish, Ballyhean and Breaghwy and it is sometimes referred to as Aglish, Ballyhean and Breaghwy Parish. There are three other films available on Castlebar Roman Catholic Parish 1279211, 1279260 and 1279261 that I will order at some later date.
Item one of this film covers Castlebar Baptisms 1883-1894.
Item two of this film covers the Diocese of Tuam, Castlebar, Aglish Parish 1894-1906.
Summary of findings from Items one and two of Microfilm 1279212: I have identified 19 different Corcoran Families in this microfilm. Keep in mind that this is only one of 4 available LDS microfilms. LDS Microfilm 1279211 (items 10-15) covers marriages 1824-1902 and Baptisms 1838-1883 (earlier records that might be more reflective of the families present pre and immediately post famine) and microfilm number 1279260 covers earlier records as well. I will add the earlier records available on the above-mentioned microfilms to these pages in the future.
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 Corcorans; 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.
