Re: ANZAC soldiers from Clare in World War 1: NAA site

Nine years later, I've finally found some of Patrick Blake's descendants for whom I have put together more information on him on my Facebook profile.

Re: niece/nephew = grandchild ?

Re: Patrick Bugler (1895-1964)

The recent death notice of another Clare nun with a Bugler grandmother prompted me to start looking at Bugler connections: https://rip.ie/death-notice/sr.-carmel-patricia-scanlan-nenagh-tipperary/429344 http://www.clare.fm/obituaries/sr-carmel-patricia-scanlan-nenagh-formerly-killaloe/ Google quickl...

"First Cousin" = grandchild ?

This is the first time I have come across "First Cousin" on a census return apparently meaning "grandchild": Mary E Casey and Katie Casey were enumerated in 1901 in their grandfather's household in Lack East .

Re: McMahon house & castle in Moyarta parish

I was reminded of this thread by a post at https://www.facebook.com/groups/countyclare/permalink/3539216449482787/ by an American claiming "McMahan [sic] ancestry" whose "ancestors built Carrigaholt Castle in County Clare". This got me looking for a published pedigree of the MacMahons of Carrigaholt...

The register of baptisms in Kilkee parish, like most baptismal registers, does not indicate in which of the churches in the parish the baptism took place; John Johnston was more likel...
