    Welcome to the IGRS forum!

    Users please be civil to each other.

    When posting a query, remember to give as much information as possible: dates, locations, resources already checked.

    All these will help other posters give you a more informative answer.

    Welcome Tri5ia.  You will find there are a fair few of us here from Cork.  What surnames are you researching?

    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.

    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.

    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.
    Thanks
    Valerie

    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 membership
