  Looking for information about my great great grandfather Thomas Burgess. He was born in 1822. I don't have any other information about his life in Ireland. He immigrated to Canada during the potato famine. 

Thank you for whatever thing you can find. 

Take care

  • Hello McCoy,

    Thank you for the information! Unfortunately I don't think that's him. I double checked the census he filled out when he immigrated to Ontario and he wrote he is was Catholic.

    Thank you again,
