Looking for a birth/baptism information on my grandfather who was born June 1871 in Derrytaugh.  I have a picture of a copy of the certificate but I cannot read the exact date or his parents names. Derrytaugh, Lurgan, Armagh is all I know.

You will need to give a surname at least.

is this the birth of your Joseph ?

24th June 1871, Lurgan superintendent's district , registrar's district Lurgan no. 2. place of birth looks like Derrytagh, so probably either Derrytagh North or Derrytagh South townland in Montiaghs civil parish.

On the one Shane linked to the mothers maiden name looks like Heany but I'm not sure about the fathers forename.

He was baptised in Seagoe parish on 18th June 1871, so their date of birth may be a bit of a guess.

Thanks, how do you order a copy of this? My cousin has a copy but has not shared details as to how he got it.

You can print it off from that address.

a partial transcript is included in the civil birth collection on FamilySearch for Joseph's birth.

The same collection includes several siblings - one as Cairns. See Kearns/Heany births
