Trying to trace Mehaffy family of Ballybay
« on: Saturday 07 August 10 14:32 BST (UK) »
Just joined forum.  Am doing a family tree and have got stuck at my Monaghan relatives from the 1800's.   Has anyone any idea where I might look?
Thanks

Well you'd be relying on church records so you'd need their religion, plus any details of townland etc.. every crumb is important!

Yes, I have seen that but all I know is that they came from Ballybay and I have no idea if any of the entries refer to the Ballybay area.  I will ask around the only older relative I have left if he has any information he can add.  Thanks for your help

Yes, they are Ballybay area.  Townlands with Ballybay being nearest town.

Thanks.  I'll try to sort out who if any "belong" to me!
