Need help planning trip, focused on Derry where my great great grandfather was born Oct 1759, in County Derry, was catholic, have wife and kids info for him. Suggestions where those recs may be? Much to search I am sure.
Also want to see Hardcastle Crags, West Yorkshire, England. I believe travel there would be flying to Leeds, believe $100 fare...
Thanks for your help:)

Hi Patricia, 

Thanks for reaching out. 

You could always ask on our Family History Section with whatever information you have on your great, great Grandfather. I would also recommend contacting the North of Ireland Family History Society, they have a Foyle branch that may have records, and they also have access to grave records. 

I hope this helps.

Hey Patricia, 

We have an Archive & Genealogy service within Derry & Strabane Council; who may be able to help you with some research prior to your trip. 

Our local genealogist is called Brian Mitchell who you could reach out to at genealogy@derrystrabane.com

Roots Ireland  is also a great site with an extensive database which you can search by county; and so may be a good starting point for you. 

Hopefully this helps!

Kind Regards 

The Visit Derry Team
