Looking for ancestry as we will be visiting Sligo in November. This is information I currently have:
Great grandfather: Owen Hillis, born 1869, Skreen, Templeboy, was a horse shoer, mother's name Ellen Loftus, father Owen Hillis
Great grandmother: Catherine Flynn: born 1874(?), The Griddle, Easkey, mother's name Catherine McDonnell, father Andrew Flynn
They both emigrated to New York, USA
ANY INFO WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED
