Re: Kinane Ancestry

Do you have any further information on your grandfather, Michael Kinane? Depending on where he lived, a marriage or death certificate may give some details on his fathers name or mothers maiden name. That might be your best starting point if you haven't already done so. Also, what did he name his el...

Re: Hogan research - Emancipated Minor

Do you know the name of his father? That would be a starting point - you could then locate his death in the civil registration index, and that will narrow down your time frame considerably. Then a search of the newspapers of the time may reveal reports of court proceedings. It sounds like a fascinat...

Re: Pilkingtons and Keanes of Gower Hall during the Great Fa

Sadly, no, I don't really know anything further. According to Charlotte Keane's diary, Francis Nathaniel Keane and his family were living at the Square, Kilrush, during the 1830's and early 1840's. She describes frequent visits to them, including a visit in 1839 for the christening of Francis' son C...

mystery woman

This photo was among a collection of old family pics, but was unidentified. Wondering if anyone can give me any help in identifying a likely time period for this photo, based on clothing style? Or at a very long shot, does anyone recognise her?
Thanks.

Re: West Clare places

Thanks Paddy! That certainly helps. I am writing up some notes to accompany the diary, and it's good to be able to give descriptions for places & people he mentions. Having studied the map, I am inclined to think that his reference to Cahircrahine mountain may in fact more likely be Cahercroghaun mo...

The following locations are mentioned in my Great Uncle Fred's diary from 1904 / 1905. Is anyone with local knowledge able to give me any further info on what and where these places are please?

Re: Arranged Marriages in Ireland

In 1815 & 1821 my 2x great grandaunts (sisters) married 2 brothers. In addition, the brides' mother and the grooms' mother were sisters, making the couples double first-cousins. In the next generation, I also have 2 sisters marrying 2 brothers, but this time unrelated, although the grooms' sister al...

Re: Irish emigrants to Argentina

www.argbrit.org is another site 'British Settlers in Argentina & Uraguay',containing cemetery records and information from records of St. Johns (Anglican) Cathedral in Buenos Aires & more. Not Irish specific, but surname search could bring up useful results.
