    Hi all

    I’m researching a McKenna family who were in Aughnacloy, Co Tyrone in 1901 and 1911. I know at least some of their children’s name. The surname is quite popular so other than ordering lots of marriage certificates (will become very expensive!) does anyone have any ideas how i can find the descendants of this family please?

    thanks for reading

    Hello Emma,
    Would be glad to help out if you give a starting point.
    There are a lot of Mc Kennas in that area!

    Hi

    Thanks so much for the reply. There are definitely plenty to look at! Any help you can offer would be much appreciated. I’ve looked so much i think i must be missing the obvious.

    Francis Mckenna and his wife Jane (nee Mullen)are in Aughnacloy  on the 1901 census with their children Henry, Francis, Sarah Ann, Catherine and Jane.  Is that enough info?

     

    thanks again:)

    Hello Emma,

    I sent a detailed reply but not sure if it went through as it does not appear.

    Did you receive it?

    Jane and John’s family are described in an Ancestry Family Tree – Gallo-Bridges Family Tree managed by klbmom46: https://www.ancestry.co.uk/family-tree/tree/108516747/family/familyview?dtid=100.

    I hope this is of help.
    I would be interested in any further information on Francis’ ancestors you may come across, and also his descendants, as part of my Mc Kenna research.
    Thank you.

    Hi again

     

    Thank you so much for looking. The owner of the tree mentioned is based in the US and unfortunately doesn’t know much about the McKenna side who probably stayed in Ireland. I will certainly share any information with you. Do you have a surname project for McKennas?

    Do you know if finding the descendants will be possible at the archives? I’m in England and never been to the archives there but may be an option once we can travel again! I am happy to pay for certificates of course but there are so many it would be cheaper (and nicer!) to visit. I guess how useful this depends on whether the records and indexes help me identify the children marriages by their father’s name too.

    thanks again, Emma
