National Schools Registers - Tamnaghmore (1878 to 1922)
Tamnaghmore National School was located beside the Tamnaghmore Friends Meeting House. The school was rebuilt in 1899 by William Henry Sinton (1841-1912). The following was researched by Maurice Mehaffey on a visit to the Public Records Office for Northern Ireland.
It would appear that boys and girls records were kept in separate books and only the girls book has survived.
The Resistration Numbers appear to be out of sequence, but Maurice noticed a number of entries had been scored out, and it would appear that those numbers were reused.
