for MacDermotRoe Researchers

Mormon Family History Database

This is the genealogical site of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. A search of for members of our family will yield many entries for the United Kingdom and North America. Remember to entry both McDermottroe and McDermotroe, two "t's" and one "t".

Additionally, within the site you can search the Mormon catalogue for microfilmed original records. Among the many important records on microfilm in the Mormon library are copies of the registers of some of the parishes in Counties Roscommon and Sligo.

To locate a record, click on "Family History Library Catalogue" on the Mormon home page. On the catalogue page, select "place search". Enter the name of the parish whose records you seek, eg. Kilronan, and you will be presented with a list of available microfilms. Equipped with the microfilm title and catalogue number, you can request the microfilm at the nearest Mormon Family History Center. The mircrofilm will be shipped from Utah to the center where you can study it.

Leitrim Roscommon Homepage

The Leitrim Roscommon homepage, a labor of love of Roger McDonnell and many volunteers, contains many searchable databases. Among these are the 1901 Irish Census, complete for Roscommon and Sligo, and partial transcriptions of the 1749 Elphin Census and Griffiths Valuation (1848-1864).

The Griffiths transcription is not merely and index, but rather includes the details for each holding as entered on the original record. The transcription of the 1749 Elphin Census is particularly valuable as this Census has not been published elsewhere and it represents the best counting of McDermotts Roe in the 18th century. One hopes that the transcription will be completed soon.

The site, also, contains local Irish maps showing parishes and townlands, as well as, a searchable database of townlands. The townland database is very useful if, for example, you have the name of a townland, but don't know in which parish it is located.

MacDermot Clan Association Homepage

This is the site of the MacDermot Clan Association. Here you will find announcements of upcoming family social events. There is also a library of articles on McDermott history, family trees and a forum. The forum has a section for postings on McDermotts Roe. While this section of the forum as been fairly inactive, McDermott Roe cousins could find it very useful way to communicate.

American Civil War Soldiers

Here you will find a searchable database of American Civil War Soldiers and Sailors. Almost 1,000 McDermotts served for North and South. The McDermotts include many McDermott Roe descendants although the appellation was not attached to any soldier's name.

The database shows a soldier's unit. With this information, you may obtain the soldier's military and pension records from the National Archives. Pension records often contain a much information of genealogical value, such as birth date and place, as well as, the soldier's physical description

Turlough O'Carolan, Harper Website

You can listen to many wonderful O'Carolan tunes at this invaluable website created by Lesley Nelson-Burns. The site contains a complete list of O'Carolan's works, as well as, a list of many recordings of his music.
