Yes when asking a question as Claire says please give as much info. as possible including names,dates, location townland is ideal but at least parish if not county, religion, and an idea of what documentation and searches you have already done.August 2, 2017 at 11:00 am #9344Tri5iaParticipant
I joined a few months ago, but this is my first visit to the Forum. I’m looking forward to participating. You never know, I may find a long lost cousin or two along the way. My Dad was from Cork City (the North side).August 9, 2017 at 9:41 pm #9387
Welcome Tri5ia. You will find there are a fair few of us here from Cork. What surnames are you researching?September 29, 2017 at 3:11 pm #9530MaureenParticipant
I joined a few months ago to research my ancestors from Cork area, Bandon to be more precise.
Denis Lynch dob 1879 baptised at Cork and Ross(RC) Innishannon, He Joined the navy and married in Peckham England,
His Father Richard Lynch 1842 Ballyclogh. Mother Margaret Dennehy 1852.also Ballyclough
I would like the find the actual records for them and will be going to Ireland mid October to see the church and local area.
Any suggestions where to find the records.January 13, 2018 at 8:51 pm #9659AndrewParticipant
I am researching the Grahams of North Wexford/South Wicklow whom I believe may be descended from one Fergus, a Scot who lives in the area from the 1590,s I would welcome contact from any Graham interested in research in this area.January 14, 2018 at 11:48 pm #9664
Hi Maureen and Graham I think it would be wise to start separate posts with your queries as they may well get overlooked in the Welcome post. Doing a post with the Surname of interest, the Location and an idea of relevant Dates all in the heading will get a much better response.October 24, 2019 at 8:25 pm #13075danielloftusParticipant

Although I’ve been a member for some years now, this is my first visit to the Forum. I am researaching my family name of Davis and have come to a dead end with my great great great grandfather Samuel Jones Davis who married a Frances Mary Bowks in the Diocese of Leighlin in or around 1800. They moved to Templemore in Tipperary and had 4 children, Jane who died at the age of 8 in 1821, George Armstrong who died age 30 in 1847, he was a Surgeon. Samuel Wesley who also died aged 32 in 1852, he was a Curate in Athlone Church of Ireland Parish and my great great grandfather Jones Henry who married a Mary Kidd from Carlow. I can trace the family up to the present day but I cannot find where my 3x great grandfather was born, nor can I find anything about his wife’s family Mary Bowks. All of the above are all buried in The Church of Ireland Church in Templemore. This is probably a long shot, but perhaps there is somebody out there who could throw some light on this. Any helop much appreciated.

Hello from Australia. I have recently joined. I am research Samuel Ford who seems more than elusive. I have tracked him to the isle of Cumbrae but I suspect he came from Ireland. Thank you for accepting my membershipApril 6, 2020 at 3:26 am #13430
