DINAN FAMILY
« on: Saturday 06 February 10 21:05 GMT (UK) »
Hi,

I am trying to trace anyone who knows anyone who may be related to or know of the Dinan family in Cork.  My maternal grandfather was called Michael Dinan, I think he was born c.1890s. He did have brothers, ?how many,?sisters.  He married my grandmother, not sure of correct spelling, Hanora Devane(?spelling) in around the 1920s. There moved to Amercia, New Jersey to be exact around that time and had 8 children. My mother Lucy Elizabeth, was the oldest. Although my mother and some of her siblings were born in New Jersey, her father and mother returned with the family to Cork and/or Carcihveen (Kerry) around the late 1930s. 

Thanks!

You might want to find the family in the 1911 census in Ireland if you haven't done so already-

Hi,
My great grandmother was Hanora Dinan nee devane. I know she had daughters called Lucy and Mary (Gemma), as Gemma was my nan. Hanora was from Carcihveen and was born in 1898. I'm looking into any family in America. I think this May be the same Hanora, she passed away in 1983 in Kilburn, London. Let me know if any of this sounds familiar to you.
