Hi to all,

 just joined site so not sure of how to navigate, i would appreciate any help that may be forthcoming.

I was born in 1951 on Mourne Road and most of my family lived near to grand Canal street. I moved to England in 1957/8, and have only been back a couple of times. 

I am interested in tracing my families roots both paternal Fanning, and Ryan maternal. Not had a great deal of luck so far. My parents did not reveal a lot of facts too us, so have had to rely on some guesswork and the odd photographs, and census 1901 & 1911

Greetings from Australia,

I am seeking info on my Greatgrandmother, Annie Olive Clyne and her sister Mary Clyne. Both were born (of Edward Clyne and Ellen Moran) in Mohill, Leitrim in 1868 and 1863 respectively. (Annie may have been born in township of Drummond - according to unreliable info). All info according to death certificates.

Annie is believed to have arrived in Queensland in 1884 and then NSW two years later. Married George A Holden in 1890 in Balmain, Sydney.

Teresa Maria Locke of the Naul married Patrick Seaver of Ballyboughal in Ballyboughal in 1836. I have looked for years of any trace of her family without success. I also would like to learn where they lived in Ballyboughal and any details of their lives. They had 4 children, Teresa, Mary, Joseph and Patrick. They immigrated to Australia in 1864. Any help appreciated.

Wolfe Families of co Cork

Searching for more information on  the following family names that had deeds, leases and/or marrages with Richard Wolfe in   1700's.

Walter Gale had lease or deed with Richard that mentions his  Richards childrens ages but no date for the lease so I am unable figure their birth years which would confirm much.

In 1773 Sampson Stawell demised property at Lower Knockapanery(Beanhill?) to Richard Wolfe.

I know that my line of the family came from Ballyboughal. They were Patrick Matthew Seaver and Teresa Maria Seaver (nee Locke, from The Naul) who immigrated to Australia in 1864. They took 2 daughters with them but two sons remained - Patrick and Joseph. My Patrick's father was also Patrick Seaver, who married Mary Dollard from Skerries in 1795. If anyone has any information I would be so grateful.
