Thanks for your message, I did send you a follow up request after your help. John McGough's father Matthew was baptised 1s July 1849 Jankrock ( ? ) Haggerston. I believe his parents were Owen McGough & Mary ( Fee ) would it be possible to find printed proof of Matthew's birth. Also I would like to discover if Owen's father was another Owen or Simon ?
With thanks
Edward McGough

HI Brendan, Is there any way I can print off the birth recoreds for Matthew McGough & his son, my grandfather John, or are you able to undertake this for me ? With thanks Edward

Hello there,

Take a photo of the record with your phone.

Go to someone like a Fuji dealer and ask them to print off the photo.
