Fest Question

This was from a recent library patron planning to leave for Ireland within the week.  Family reported to him that an ancester Stephen Flannagan was born in Kildare July 1816.  Where in Kildare might he have been born?

We searched the Irish Family History Foundation index for Kildare and found just one baptism record for Stephen Flannagan (or any other spelling variants) during a 10 year window for 1816 in Kildare.  This one had the spelling 'Stephen Flannigan' and was in 1816. 

Now 1816 is very early, and it is extremely likely that other baptisms were not recorded and if they were, the records have not survived. There is no certainty that this 1816 Stephen Flannigan of Kildare is the patron's sought after 1816 Stephen Flannagan of Kildare.   

In this case the library patron opted to get the baptism record from the Irish Family History Foundation for 5 Euro ($6.35 US).  The baptism date was 7Aug1816, plausible for a July birth.  Parents were Terence Flannigan and Johanna Wolfe, sponsors were Francis Flannigan and Marcella Flannigan - nothing striking to the patron about those names.  The listed place was the parish of Maynooth and unfortunately, no townland was entered.

Any lead is helpful, especially with a ticket to Ireland in hand, so the patron was happy.
