Knockbreda Parish register gleanings. My focus was on JACKSONs and names known to have married into the family. It is by no means exhaustive, in part because the films I was working with varied in quality - as did my vision, depending on the time of day.

Marriages –The first entries on the CHurch of Ireland microfilm were challenging to read. Since my eyes were starting to get fatigued, I stopped. My hope had been that the originals might be available at the Representative Church Body in Dublin, but they are not. I did notice that there seemed to be a number of links to people from Lisburn.
