Baptism transcription check

Baptism of Ellen McCormack born 1855-06-21, baptised June 24, 1855. States mother as Bridget Martin, but should be Bridget Hartin/Harten. One of the Godparents is Ellen Martin, this could be correct, but could someone check that this lady is not a Hartin/Harten also. Many thanks.

It's Hartin on FMP transcript only no original image.

Hi Claire,

Thanks for letting me know I will check it out. Having problems with the original CD that we used to transcribe St Vincents material from but...... I will have hubby check it for me as he was the transcriber.


Re: Baptism transcription check

Found the original page on Family Search and I agree it is Hartin in both cases. I will change our database.

Hi Claire,
On BMD there is a marriage record for:

On GRO the mother's maiden name given for the birth of Ellen McCormick in 1855 was HARTAN

On this site there is a marriage record for:
Matthew McCormick ( parents Math & Ellen) and
Margaret Hartman (parents: Gow & Ellen)
marriage took place on November 5th, 1853 at St. Marie's R.C. Church Sheffield.

Worth looking into..??
