Omigoodness - I guess that means I won't be going out anywhere this weekend!

Thank you, thank you!  I've been trying to unknot this Stevens ancestor since the 80s, and didn't manage it even back when I did have an Ancestry subscription!  Sometimes it just takes one puzzle piece to send you in the right direction  :-)

I had better drag myself to bed - it's sooo tempting to stay up and keep searching for more.

Nannyj - I just saw your signature line with Cullens from Dublin.  I have some of those too.  If you come across Cullens married into the O'Hara/Canavan family, they'd be mine  :-)

Those names don't come up in mine. However, my nan's mum died in childbirth and her dad disappeared shortly after so there's not much into on that side. I did find my mum's first cousin recently though. Neither knew that the other existed.
