The Clare Journal did not usually publish advertisements seeking to make contact, so this one caught my attention:
Clare Journal, Mon 8 Apr 1861:
Local News. Important. We copy the following, at the request of a friend, from the Melbourne Leader, of the 12th Jan., 1861: “Should this meet the eye of Margaret Markum county Clare, Ireland, her sister Bridget Hern wants to see her at 68 Lonsdale-street West.”
