There were two people working on Killard parish (Doonbeg) over two years ago but there is still nothing for this parish on the website. Is the work still ongoing or have the results gone astray somewhere? Or did both stop thinking that the other was continuing?

A Kerry example:
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/p ... re/272838/

Mary and Annie Teresa Woulfe were both granddaughters of the head of household Ellen Woulfe, but are both described as niece on the handwritten return; one has been mistranscribed as "Aunt"!

Another example: http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Clare/Knocknagore/Carrowblock_More/1080175/ Norah Hanrahan, described as niece of Margaret Connell, was her granddaughter, born in Jersey City, NJ on 18 Nov 1886 to Michael Hanrahan and Annie (O')Connell and baptized Honora Hanrahan o...

Thanks a million, Jimbo. As you say, the funeral report provides almost as many questions as answers! Women did not attend funerals in those days, as you can see from the fact that all the mourners listed are male! Michael Quinlivan, the Killeens, Christopher Kelly and Fr. Browne are probably all co...

For completeness, here's an example of a nephew wrongly described as a son, in a household where the head indicates that he is a bigamist. One of his so-called wives must be his sister-in-law, and the order of the entries suggests that his so-called son is far more likely to be his nephew: http://ww...

I have discussed the Quinlivan family extensively in this forum and with many of the descendants over the years, e.g. http://www.ourlibrary.ca/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1697 and http://www.ourlibrary.ca/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=3873 I noticed over the years that Fr. Laurence Browne (whose...

murf wondered back on Christmas Eve whether there was a gender bias either in the numbers of children living with uncles, aunts or grandparents or in the usage of wrong English terminology to describe these relationships. I thought it might be time to do a count of the examples above, and so far the...

Another example: Given the age gap of 56 years between head of household Mary Ryan (60) and her "niece" Mary Walsh (4) at http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Clare/Killard/Glascloon/1080111/ in 1901, I was immediately suspicious that the child was a granddaughter of Mary Ryan ...

Another example - a girl with the same name and same implied birth year and from the same townland as the previous example, although their relationship at best is distant: In Glascloon in 1901, Bridget Whelan (3) was a niece of James Foran, Sr. (65) and James Foran, Jr. (27) was also in the househol...
