Hello, my name is Mary Casey and I was born in Roscrea Tipperary at Sean Ross Abby in 1951. My biological mother’s name is Mary Cashin. She was from Roscrea and is no longer with us. I was adopted at the age of three and raised in the United States. I was told my father is Thomas McGee. Through Ancestry.com I have connected with relatives, that also share the McGee name, that are from the Donnegal.area. Any help or insight into learning more about a possible connection to my father would be greatly appreciated!
Why not send a message to Donegal Heritage's FB page: https://www.facebook.com/donegalheritage
Since this is a sensitive topic, perhaps say that "for a family history, I am looking for Thomas McGee" and then give his age, etc.?
This issue of adoption is being dealt with at the moment - Birth Information & Tracing - by the Department of Children etc - TUSLA - birthinfo.ie.
If you have not done so, you may consider contacting the Department.
In regard to the surname "McGee" there are quite a number with this surname in County Offaly.
Thank you for you suggestions! Also to note, is that my father was not told about the pregnancy. My mother wanted to protect his privacy. She was 17 yrs when I was born.
