  • Hello, Are you looking for ancestors of James and Honora--or descendants?

  • I guess either one!

    Preferably, decendants. I would be very interested in meeting any family I might have in Tralee. My mother's name was Mary Patricia Dunne, she is now 91. Her father was James Michael Dunne, born June 1,1888 in Tralee. Died March 11, 1943 in Boston, MA. James immigrated to the US. He arrived at Ellis Island June 22, 1913. I have a copy of the ship's manifest from Ellis Island. Very exciting! I'll be visitng Ellis Island next month. 

    Any assistance anyone could offer would be greatly appreciated! So looking forward to meeting family!
