Church and Catholic Parish Search. This option searches for the closest Catholic Chapel
to a selected location based on Chapel locations as they were in the late 1830s and early 1840s. The results are showns
on a map with markers showing these Churches, along with names of the linked Parishes. To select a search location
click on the map to place the Search Marker
(), the marker may also
be moved by clicking on it and holding, while dragging with the mouse or pointing device, then click 'search search' below the map to start.
The usual Google map navigation is also available, either using the pan and zoom control
functions to the left of the map, or by clicking and dragging the map, or zooming with the mouse wheel.
The search locates the nearest chapels 'as the crow flies', and does not take account of
geographic features such as mountains, bogs, rivers etc.
