Query: I am searching for anything about my ancestors. Anastasia Hoyne who I have being born to Richard and Elizabeth Hoyne on January 6, 1845 0r 1846. I am told but it is not confirmed that she was born in South Kilkenny. She married William Walter Walsh who was born in 1836, from his death record I found his parents listed as John and Betsy Welch. I don't know where he is from but am guessing County Kilkenny. They had their first child Elizabeth Waslh, born May 28, 1873 and then according to Elizabeth's death record immigrated to the US in 1873. Any information- birth records or marriage record would be appreciated.

My wifes mother who is still living in Plmouth England originated from Thomastown County Kilkenny Ireland having left there in 1938. Her mother Kate Dalton was still living but died in Ireland after the war having little contact with her gaughter who's name is Mary Bennett nee Dalton born in Thomastown in 1918. Her father James Dalton who she cannot recall with any clear memory died soon after she was born at a young age (she thinks forty)and mother married on the 3rd of February 1909 at the Roman Catholic Chapel at Freshford for which she as a copy of the Marriage Certificate. Unfortunately the certificate does not give them a exact birthdates having the word fullage as a age which i take as being able to mary without parents consent. She would like to obtain a birth certificate and or a Baptism certificate for both parents. Although i realise you cannot supply certification we thought that you may point us in the right direction to enable us to contact the proper authorities with regards to furthering our progress. We wondered if there was a local genealogy groupwho may be able to help.of course any fee involved would be honoured if details of payment could be sent. My mother in law is aware of several names mainly Dalton who she remembers as a young girl and she thinks there offspring is still in the Ballycallan,Kilree.Freshford and Kilmanagh of Kilkenny. Many thanks for your time and patients

Query: Hello, I am attempting to begin family research on my grandmother, Mary F. Doherty. We don't have a lot of information but if any of this sounds familiar please contact me! Mary had two brothers, John and Fred who came from Kilkenny and settled in the Hamilton, Ontario, Canada region around 1900. They had a younger sister named Sarah who died at any earlier age and a unnamed brother who died from a gun wound. Their father was the hounds/grounds keeper on a large country estate. Mary loved to sing in the church choir, was a speed walker and often worked as a waitress or house keeper. Mary came to Canada after her brothers around 1905(?) and then settled in the USA in the 1920s. I look forward to any little piece of information that you might have. I am not an expert genealogist but have been rather successful in other searches up till now. Thank you in advance and if you are my relative I would like to hear from you!!!
