Hi, I have a about 6 branches of my family tree which I have traced back to Ireland. The earliest birth date I have is 1791 and the latest about 1852.

Does anyone know if there is a website or do any records actually still exist for before 1791 and up to 1852 or did they all get destroyed. Do I have to call it a day with those six branches or would I be able to get any further back.

Any advice appreciated.

Marilyn :-)
