The Brigh Presbyterian baptisms have been indexed and can be found on the 
Familysearch website: Ireland Births and Baptisms 1620-1881.

This is a large database of several thousand indexed (only) records from the 
registers of nine churches, five of them being Church of Ireland parishes in Co 
Down; and are not grouped by church, but alphabetically and it is necessary to 
search extensively.

To compile a user-friendly file for CTI http://www.cotyroneireland.com/ 
subscribers consisting of Brigh Presbyterian baptisms only, has involved 
extracting relevant data, taking time and some effort – the records on the 
Familysearch database are indexes ONLY of all nine churches and have been 
transcribed by LDS church members from the filmed records in PRONI, Belfast; 
please note that they are not the actual images from the registers. The LDS 
have not been granted permission to film and upload Irish Presbyterian and 
Church of Ireland registers– such permission has been given to PRONI only where 
the films may be consulted. Moreover, the transcribers did not record the 
all-important townland (essential for Irish research).

I trust this clarifies things and that the file of Brigh Presbyterian Baptisms 
1832-45 http://www.cotyroneireland.com/churchrecord/brigh2.html is useful and 
interesting to researchers hailing from that part of Co. Tyrone

The LDS no longer sends film to Family History Centers, However, the films are 
all available at the Salt Lake Family History Library, in Salt Lake and can be 
accessed there.  You maybe able to find them in the special collections area of 
FamilySearch.org  it’s a free site.  Depending on the records they may even 
have been index and you can search by the names.  Otherwise go to the 
collections area and type in Ireland or the area your looking for and browse 
through the records that have not been indexed.

The LDS has this on their FamilySearch site and I requested the microfilm of 
this data and it showed the Townland each was from.  It showed that Andrew, 
James and William Wright were from Ballynafeagh.  I do not know if the LDS 
still makes microfilm available.  In addition, I had PRONI do a search on 
non-digitized data and they found the hand written records of the marriage Of 
the parents of the Wright Brothers in addition to their hand written births.
