Looking for Family Dwyer
« on: Sunday 16 July 17 21:44 BST (UK) »
I've been using ancestry to find members of my family for a long time and I've seemed to have reached a brick wall. My 2nd Great Grandfather was named Edward Dwyer and he was born around Kildare, Ireland in 1859. I'm looking for his parents. His children's names are Patrick, John, Elizabeth, Matthew, Mary, Michael, Edward, Nellie, Thomas, and Timothy. His wife's name was Catherine.
If anyone else has him in their tree, please reach out!

Welcome to RootsChat Melanie, did Edward marry in Ireland and if so were any of his children born in Ireland?

Hello and welcome  :)

I am sure that people will want to help you. You give no dates or places and I know you are looking for family members.
I can see a family with several of those names living in Greenane, Kerry with Edward born Co. Kerry. Could that be your family? If so, I wonder about Kildare as a birthplace  ???

Do you have Edward and Catherine's marriage details? You would hopefully find his father's name there.

Regards
Heywood

Heywood,
I think that you're right about Greenane, that is my family for sure. As for the marriage details, all I have are census records that list them as husband and wife, along with their children. I have yet to find one with his parents listed.

Yes, that's them! I have those records, and that's the most I was able to find!

I'll ask a Moderator to move this to the Kerry board.
It should be possible to find more, Ireland has several good free sites that can be searched.
