Early surviving records of this congregation have been microfilmed by the staff of PRONI, Belfast, where they are available for consultation:

Baptisms 1832-1953; circuit schedule books 1866-1909; membership registers 1863-1907; minutes about rebuilding Omagh Chapel 1855-7; quarterly meeting minute book 1859-1902; circuit stewards’ book 1829-85; PRONI ref: MIC1E/24

Baptisms 1831-46; PRONI ref: MIC429/1/253

 

The condition of the original records and quality of filming make transcription challenging and where possible, the Drumragh (1834) and Cappagh (1827) tithe applotment books and Griffiths Valuation (c1858) have been consulted for confirmation of families and townland addresses
