Does anybody know of any Mullane’s that lived or live on the Killorglin area please or Slattery’s from Clare?
Yes there are Mullanes in Killorglin – mostly from 1825 – 1847. Just check the names on http://www.irishGenealogy.ie in the Church Records section. Very simply enter the name ‘Mullane’ and the location ‘Killorglin – nothing else and go down to SEARCH,
Sorry I can’t help you with the Clare query, I specialise in Kerry only.
Hi Kay Can anyone help with info on the Hurley family in Killarney

Patricia, thank you for your comment. As you are arriving in Killarney in a week’s time, it doesn’t give a real opportunity to find descandants in that space of time. I would suggest that you go into Killarney Library while you are there and ask to see the local Register of Electors – the last one issued. Also enquire from the librarian on duty if she could refer you to any older citizens who might be actiee in local history in the area. You will probably find lots of ‘O’Callaghans’ in the register so you will need a bit more direction. Kay

Trying to find record of my mothers birth.
Brigid foley 06.01.1921?
Born to denis foley/annie ashe of fibough.keel
Co kerry.seven other siblings all born in same home.
My mother brigid siekierski now deceased on 25.05 2014 in walsall west midlands.
My mother recalled her birth registered long time after actual birth due the times.
Willing to attend pwrsonally as visiting this year.
Janina, it is not possible to research a birth within a hundred years. Due to data protection, we cannot access births after 1915 (of course it should be 1917 but the ‘powers that be’ haven’t caught up with that yet. Your best bet is when you visit Ireland, go to the General Register Office in Werburgh St., Dublin. Be prepared to put in some time if as you say, the birth was not registered until after the actual time. You can purchase a Day Pass for €20 and go through all the Birth books from 1913 (apx) and see if there is a Brigid Foley registered in the Registration District of Killarney. Keel is an unusual one – keep an eye out for Brigid Foley in the Dingle registrations just in case.
Best of luck, Kay

I’m having trouble finding the birth records of James Fitzgerald Sneem Kerry 1882 (information derived from other certificates).
Has anyone got any tips?
i’ve tried many of the usual routes.
You seem to be close to the place. You will note my middle name!
Tony, yes it will be possible. You probably need this for Irish Citizenship/Passport purposes. I have replied to you by email. Kay
I am trying to find a Denis Mullane and Kate Shea….I they had a daughter Mary Ellen Mullane born in Miltown Kerry Ireland…Mary had a daughter Catherine Violet Mullane.
On Catherine’s wedding record it states she was illegitimate.
Mary went on to marry an Edward Hill (He was English and they lived in Australia – in Bundaberg Qld).
Catherine was married in Australia but I’m unable to determine if she was born here or in Ireland?? Catherine would have been born approx 1884/5.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Jackie, on a quick look at Kerry baptisms http://www.IrishGenealogy.ie there is no record of either a baptism of Catherine Mullane in Kerry between 1880 and 1886. That date range is to cover any possible error in Catherine’s supposed birth. You see no Irish person knew (or cared about) their dates of birth in the 19th century – they just took a guess at what they might be. Also checked for any record of Denis Mullane/Kate Shea with negative result. However that may be because the records in Milltown do not start until 1826 and their birth dates may be too early.
I am looking for a Joseph Huddy born about 1807 in County Kerry or the family name Huddy in the late 1700’s or early 1800’s
I too am trying to track a Joseph Huddy, born in Kerry, moved to Creevagh North, Mayo. He may be related to my great Great Grandmother Jane Huddy Conroy. Does that match your Joseph Huddy? Nancy Conroy
My grandfather was Martin Huddy from creevah Cong county mayo
Hello, both sides of my family come from Kerry, Scart townland and Tullamore townland, Im trying to see how far back I can go! my question is this, I have read that in Ireland they had a naming system so to speak first son named after fathers father and so on, is this true/accurate? and was it followed strictly, would I get far using this method? oh and with the 1901/1911 census how accurate were their ages? because some of them don’t add up with the year they were born in other records! any advice is much appreciated!
Several years ago we visited the “basement museum” in a private home in Killorglin. Is it still there? If not, do you know where the material went? Coming over later in Sept and wanted to have a good look at the material. We have ancestors, Looney, who lived in Lismacfinnan and Killorglin.
Martha, I never heard of the basement museum in Killorglin. I was there on Sunday and spotted the Killorglin Heritage Centre had a shop or at least a presence in a shop on the main st. Best thing would be to contact Killorglin Archives website.
Hi, Kay. I am attempting to untangle my maternal grandmother’s Kerry roots, and am running into what I expect is a rather common problem: too many people of the same name in the same area at the same time. Any pointers? I’m dealing with the Cliffords of Dromod parish, in the Waterville area from the 1840s onward. Daniel Clifford and Hanora Connor are my original ancestors – all I have on them are their names, sadly. They had a large family and it seems that each of their sons had a son names Daniel. How might I decipher who is who when looking at available records (online, as I am in the States)?? I know spellings of locations vary greatly, so I’m doing my best to go matching with phonetical spelling, but even then, I get confused. ANY hints are greatly appreciated! Thank you!
Karen, you have a difficult one here ok. Dromod Parish records start in 1850 with some months missing threafter. Added to that in the case of the name ‘Clifford’, it was also known as ‘Cluvane’ so you should search for both names. There are records of Dermot (b.1853) and Daniel (b.1856) in http://www.IrishGenealogy.ie. You will find the father Daniel Clifford’s land records in Griffiths Valuation 1852 in Srón na Lochain, where five of the seven occupiers of mountainly land were Cliffords. i will email you privately.
Hello, While investigating my Mulvihill ancestors in County Kerry (Coolkeragh/Moyvane), I have come across 2 places mentioned on Moyvane baptismal records from 1837 and 1841, which I cannot identify. Perhaps they are addresses, rather than place names as such: they are Sronagraga and Poulagoun (I did find a Poulagoun in Co. Clare). Just wondering whether you can throw any light on these places? Many thanks..
I am looking for information regarding Michael Reardon. His gravestone has his birth year 1808 at Killarney. He is buried here on Prince Edward Island, Canada. If you have information or suggestion as to how I might find information, I would appreciate it.
Replying to you separately with Query Form to get more relevant information.
Hi Kay. I sent you an email regarding the Hoare family from Kerry. Not sure if the mailto link worked. Can you advise please?
Con, yes thank you I got your query I should get to have a look at it in the next couple of days. My emails ‘swamp’ me sometimes.
Great, thanks Kay
I am trying to trace my grandfather’s birth records. He was born 28 November, 1896 and lived on the family farm in Firies. I visited the farm in the 80s, so I know it’s there, but I can’t find any records on him in Ireland. His name was John Daniel Mahoney. He emigrated to the U.S. in 1920. He doesn’t show up on the 1901 or 1911 census. Are you able to point me in a direction for more information?
Many thanks for your time!
Jennifer, I would need some more details on him and I can have a look then. I will send you by email a Query Form. It has targeted questions. Perhaps you would fill in and return to me.
I am trying to find information on a Daniel McCarthy who married Bridget Lane on Feb 11, 1831 in Templenoe Parish, Kenmare. We have a copy of the parish record recording the marriage. They left Ireland shortly after their marriage and went to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the US. Their first child, Charles was born in Philadelphia. We are looking for information on Daniel, his parents or siblings. We think his father may be Charles due to the tradition of naming the first son after the paternal grandfather. His mother is named Ann. She also left Ireland and was living with Daniel in 1850 in Philadelphia. I know records prior to 1830 are scarce. Are there any sources available that would indicate his parents or siblings? We think Daniel was born about 1807. His mother was about 37 when he was born so he may have been one of the youngest of the children. Based on your experience, do you know if there are any exisiting records from the period of 1790-1830 that may be able to provide more info on Daniel and his family.
Nancy, thank you for your enquiry. The records from Templenoe are now included in the Kenmare Church Records and the earliest records surviving there are both baptisms and marriage from 1819. A quick search for any family of Charles McCarthy as father is negative. On a quick land search in the Tithe Applotments 1825, there are only two McCarthy names and they are John, Cladanure and Eugene of Goulanes townlands.
My understanding is that the church of Templenoe was established about 1819 that is why there are no records prior to that. I don’t know what church would have served that area prior to 1819. I was told that the marriage was usually in the wife’s church so I’m not sure if Daniel’s family was also in that parish but it is the only record we have. Given the naming tradition how likely would it have been for Daniel not to have named his first son after his father? What was the area of Kenmare like in the early 1800’s would it be likely that Daniel did not live in that parish but worked there? Any suggestions?
Records of church births/marriages in Templenoe may or may not have existed prior to 1819 but its only from that date that records survive. The reason for this is that the Penal Laws in Ireland prohibited Catholics practicing their religion and Catholic Priests in particular from carrying out and/or recording the the details of their priestly functions. This meant that priests were working in a very informal way, jotting down notes, there were no Parish Offices etc. The Roman Catholic Relief Act was finally passed by the Parliament of the United Kingdom in 1829. To answer your other questions, could I direct you to my blog Life in Kerry in the 19th Century
Does anyone have any information about the Jeffcott family? My ancestor, Robert stated on his 5th Dragoon army records that he was born in Killarney in 1838-1839. I know from his marriage records that his father was called John and that John was a farmer and a house painter at different times. Robert was a paper stainer before joining the 5th Dragoon aged 17 and a half in 1855. I can find Robert’s marriage and army records, but no information about his birth or his father and I don’t know who his mother was. Thank you!
Kate, there is only one family of Jeffcott in Killarney – none called Robert. However there is a baptism/birth of Robert Jeffcott in Tralee 28 July 1833, with father John Jeffcott and mother Eliza Jeffcott. John Jeffcott is described as ‘A Private and Glazier. this would appear to me to be your ancestor.
