Some members of the Clare Past Forum have initiated a project which seeks to list people who have emigrated from County Clare and who passed through the emigration station on Ellis Island, New York between 1892 and 1924, using free and publicly available data provided online by the . The project will be managed by Paddy Casey, a member of the forum, in association with Clare County Library staff. We are now seeking volunteers to assist in this project by agreeing to transcribe relevant records relating to individual .

Anyone who is interested in participating should register their interest in transcribing a particular parish (if they have not already done so) by emailing clare.emigrants@gmail.com. You will then be contacted by the project manager. Please indicate preferred parish.

A page on the main library website has been created to accommodate the project at http://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclar ... roject.htm

have been provided by Clare Past Forum member Tom McDowell.

Data should be transcribed whenever possible online using the .

Transcribers who cannot use this form can download a and email it in to clare.emigrants@gmail.com following completion.

It is intended that volunteers will undertake to search for all emigrants from a particular parish. A table showing who has agreed to transcribe which parish is shown on the .

This project is the result of discussions on the topic on the Clare Past forum.

I've just come across a manifest page from Ellis Island in which no less than 18 of the 30 people listed were from different parts of West Clare, going to different parts of the U.S. Those looking after this project for the relevant parishes might like to check that they have caught all these people:

These people left Queenstown aboard the S.S. Celtic on 15 Sep 1911 and arrived at Ellis Island on 23 Sep 1911. See images formerly freely available at
http://www.ellisisland.org/cgi-bin/tif2gif.exe?T=\\192.168.100.11\images\t715-1744\t715-17440657.tif&S=1
and
http://www.ellisisland.org/cgi-bin/tif2gif.exe?T=\\192.168.100.11\images\t715-1744\t715-17440656.tif&S=1
and available to subscribers at
http://interactive.ancestry.com/7488/NY ... 4005092549
and
http://interactive.ancestry.com/7488/NY ... 4005092549

I was looking for Delia O'Dea (no.29), later Mrs. Tom Cullinan. She was 22, female, single, servant, non-immigrant alien. Her last permanent residence was Tullabrack, Ireland. Her nearest relative or friend in Ireland was her sister Mrs. Woulfe, Tullabrack, Co. Clare. Her final destination was Buffalo, NY. She had previously been in the U.S. for 7 years in what looks like `Town' or `Iowa'. Delia was going to her brother Pat O'Dea, 36 Harvey [or Harry?] Place, Buffalo, NY. She was 5' 6" with fair hair, fair complexion and blue eyes. She was born in Tullabrack, Ireland.

The other West Clare people on the same page of the manifest, whose details I have partly transcribed, as best I can read the handwriting, were:

no.4 Catherine Talty (22), child of Michael Talty, Doonbeg, Co. Clare, b. Doonbeg, going to brother Michael Talty, 789 Washington St., NY;
no.5 Delia McMahon (22), child of Pat McMahon, Cooraclare, Co. Clare, b. Cooraclare, going to friend Mrs. Horward, 1101 Garden St., Hoboken, NJ;
no.6 Molly McDonnell (22), sibling of Ml. McDonnell, Baltard, Co. Clare, b. Baltard, going to sister Catherine McDonnell, 603 Grove St., Jersey City;
no.7 Delia Hedigan (18), child of John Hedigan, Kilmacduan, Co. Clare, b. Kilmacduan, going to sister Kate Hedigan, 7 Pleasant Ave., Weehauken Heights, New Jersey;
no.8 Thomas O'Brien (22), child of Mrs. O'Brien, Tullaro, Co. Clare, b. Tullaro, going to sister Mary O'Brien, 2701 Prairie Ave, Chicago, Ill.;
no.9 Michael Sexton (22), child of Ml. Sexton, Tarmon, Co. Clare, b. Tarmon, going to sister Delia Sexton, 32 Clarkson St., New York;
no.10 Mary Sexton (18), child of Ml. Sexton, Tarmon, Co. Clare, b. Tarmon, going to sister Delia Sexton, 32 Clarkson St., New York;
no.11 Ellen Doherty (22), child of John Doherty, Doonbeg, Co. Clare, b. Doonbeg, going to sister Mary McGrath, 201 Erie St., Jersey City;
no.18 Annie McMahon (20), child of Pat McMahon, Cooraclare, Co. Clare, b. Cooraclare, going to Brother Wm. McMahon, 161 Newark St., Hoboken, NJ;
no.20 Ellen McAuliff (42), child of Mrs. McAuliff, Connolly, Ennis, b. Ennis, going home to 350 West Orange St., Lancaster;
no.21 Bridget M. Madigan (23), child of Michael, Derreen, Liscannor, Co. Clare, b. Liscannor, going to her aunt Mrs. Murphy, 19 Elton St., Rochester, NY;
no.22 Anna Moore (23), child of Thomas Moore, Dereen, Liscannor, Co. Clare, b. Liscannor, going to her sister Delia Moore, 132 Hamlet St., Columbus;
no.25 Mary Hickey (22), last residence Kilrush, child of Ger Hickey, Cragaknock, Co. Clare, b. Cragaknock, going to sister Kate Neutsey[?], 303 Old Brygen, Bergen Road, Jersey City;
no.26 Nano Conway (18), last residence Ballynote, child of Ml. Conway, Ballynote, Co. Clare, going to Columbus, Ohio;
no.27 William Downes (22), child of John Downes, Tullahan, Co. Clare, b. Tullaher[?], going to cousin Patrick Waters, 206 7th Street, Jersey City;
no.28 Anne Killeen (22), child of Ml. Killeen, Doonbeg, Co. Clare, b. Doonbeg, going to sister Mollie Killeen (Waters), 206 7th Street, Jersey City; and
no.30 Katie Kelly (19), child of John Kelly, Kilard [sic], Co. Clare, b. Kilard [sic], going to cousin Michael Talty, 789 Washington Ave., New York. (Nos. 4 and 30 were going to the same relative; nos. 27 and 28 were going to the same relative.)

I haven't tried to match all the emigrants to the 1911 census, taken only a few months earlier.

Hi Paddy,
Thanks for West Clare emigrants.
I'm currently compiling Killard parish so have added your contributions.
Unlike any of the other parishes I've looked at for Clare I'm finding a very high percentage of Killard Parish emigrants heading for Jersey City addresses.
If anyone knows of a particular reason for this, I'd love to know.

Seasons greetings,
Tom McDowell

Hi Tom,

Jerry Blake is already working on Killard (see http://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclar ... roject.htm ). This needs to be coordinated. Please get in touch with him directly, copies to me, to coordinate your work. I'll mail you both right away to get you connected.

Paddy

Paddy W.,

Individual emigrants can be transcribed with the spreadsheet template which can be downloaded from http://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclar ... roject.htm The resulting spreadsheet can be mailed to clare.emigrants@gmail.com

The online form has been deactivated and the link has been removed from the http://www.clarelibrary.ie/eolas/coclar ... roject.htm page. Thank you for pointing this out.

The evidence regarding the last permanent residence (LPR) varies enormously from record to record (beginning with the legibility of a given entry) and it has to be left up to the transcriber to deduce the last permanent residence from all the data. As you point out, next of kin,, place of birth or other hints might be more useful than the entry in the LPR column in a manifest. Thus the LPR might say "Tubber", of which there are several in Ireland, but the next of kin might be of a well-known family in Tubber, Co.Clare, or the person might be going to, e.g. a brother in Cambridge, Massachusetts, who the transcriber knows to have been from Tubber, Co.Clare. There is a column "Assumed correct last residence" in the template. The Notes column in the template can be used for statements as to how the LPR was deduced.

Paddy C.

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?
