United States of America / Re: HAMMOND family, "went to America"...........
« on: Tuesday 22 July 14 05:53 BST (UK)  »
Hello New Zealand,
I found a Herbert Hammond in the 1910 US Census, living in Missouri and married to an Emma. He was born in England and his age puts his birth year at about 1866.

At that point, Herbert has 2 children, Arthur K, 19, born in West Virginia and Herbert E, 17, born in New York.

Moving forward to the 1930 US Census, Arthur K Hammond (born in West Virginia), shows Kepler V Hammond listed as his son and they lived in Pueblo, Colorado.  Kepler V was born in Colorado in 1925.

I hope this is a connection. You can find more on, which is free.

Good Luck.

Cork / Catholic Parishes in Ballyvourney

I found baptismal information on my great, great grandmother, but it just states- 

Does anyone know which Roman Catholic parish or church, was located in Ballyvourney around 1839?

Thanks so much.

Donegal / Re: Location for Lower Town, Clonca

Thank you, that helps a lot.

For some reason , I have the worse time wrapping my head around these Irish place names.

Donegal / Families and farms in Donegal
« on: Sunday 20 April 14 02:05 BST (UK)  »
How long would one family in the late 1800's usually stay on the same farm, without moving?

I know here in the US, family farms are passed down, usually from father to a son, or a son would buy a piece of land close to their parents, so they could help out on both.

Usually,  farmers are born, die, raise their children and live their entire lives in the same house.

Barring those whoemmigrated to a different country, was that how it was done, in Ireland, during that time period, or did being a tenant farmer, rather than an owner, have a big effect on it?

I guess what I'm trying to ask is, if a person is listed in the Tithe Applotment Book,  what are the chances they, or some of their children, will still be in the same place, in Griffith's Valuation?


Donegal / Location for Lower Town, Clonca

Does anyone know exactly where Lower Town in Clonca is located?

It's in the Tithe Applotment Book,  but not in Griffiths, so it might be a name that changed into something else.


The Common Room / Re: Gggrrrrrr!! Private Tree on Ancestry photos copied

 I don't think  there is anyway to stop this.  As long as anyone else can access  your page, private our not, you always take a chance, that somewhere down the line, this will happen.  And there is really no way to stop it.

Also, there is nothing to stop them from copying a photo, onto their own computer,  and uploading it onto a different site like Myheritage,  or even back onto Ancestry, without any trail at all leading back to you, by using "Save image As", in Windows.

If your biggest complaint is people posting your photos without attributing them to you, why don't you try watermarking the online image itself,  before you post it?  That way your name is associated with it, and it would be too  much trouble for the average person to Photoshop it out.  If those you trust, want an unmarked  copy,  than they will have to contact you directly.

Donegal / Doherty's from Meedanmore.

Does anyone have any information on Doherty's, from Meedanmore?
Gerald Doherty b. abt 1806, d 1874

If I'm correct, he had a son Denis b.abt 1844, and a daughter Margaret  b. abt 1840, and  I think another son Bernard, but I not absolutely sure about him. They all moved to the US from 1858-1862

His wife was Ellen, and she also moved to the US, but I think it was after he died.


Donegal / Re: Is Gortinurty a typo or a real place?
« on: Friday 09 August 13 09:32 BST (UK)  »
Could it be Gortany, Carndonagh?

It could be. They sound similar. Thanks, I'll check it out.

Ireland / Re: Were Bryan/Bernard interchangable in Ireland in the 1800's
« on: Tuesday 30 July 13 23:30 BST (UK)  »

I  guess I was confused  because they really don't seem  at all similar.

I've seen the name, in my family, as Barnared, Bernard and Barney,  but never Bryan  our Brian.

I  think this might help clear up some things.

Thanks Again.
