FHC Film and Microfilm Searched

The LDS (Mormon Church) has Family History Centers in many of their churches around the world. The Church has fiched and filmed many, many civil and parochial records from all over the world. A good resource! I believe the cost differs at each center, but it is far less than the cost of a plane ticket to the land of your ancestors. Look in your telephone book under Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Call to see if they have a Family History Center.
The following is a list of film / fiche that I have searched. I would appreciate contributions to this list as relates to County Monaghan, along with your comments.

1279323 - also see below - new Letters. . ., Armagh, Monaghan So far I found the "Tythe Composition Book of Curren Parish, Clogher; accounts of a workhouse (Castleblayney PLU during 1840-50'ties). The names of the board and suppliers are easy to read. Handwritten account of petitioners very difficult to read. Would be good to find another copy. Will do if your family is from this area!
On the same film are the PRONI holdings of the Shirley Estate Papers. Great resource for the Barony of Farney. There are extracts that give lots of history. Good read - if you remember that f is s!
Another find on the same film is a compilation of letters written by John O'Donovan during the Ordinance survey of 1835. Good read with lots of historical references!
The Tithe Applotment Books for Errigal Trough for 1826 are listed also. Very difficult to read, but worth it if your family is from that parish.
