Dublin / Re: Duggans - Dublin
« on: Tuesday 02 August 11 19:53 BST (UK)  »
Hi....I think my Duggan from Dublin is the same. It looks like I can attach an image or post a PDF showing the tree where it currently stands.  It would be much easier than explaining it all but my grandmother is from the seemingly same family.....Duggan - Portland Row - Keeley/Keely - McCarthy - Printer/Composter - Freemans Journal - Freeman of Dublin - Julia burried in Glasnevin, etc. If I can post a picture of the tree so far perhaps we can work out what pieces others have that I don't and together get the complete picture. That would be really exciting and I could then show to older relatives and see if more gaps can be filled in. No time to do it now but will give it a go. Also, how do I look at anything others have posted. I see messages with references to something seemingly being shared but cannot see any images just your message texts.

Cheers! L

Hi L!

A few of us have our information and trees shared on, but if we establish a connection here, we can add you in and you can see what we've got!  :)

If you want to post two more messages here, your Private messages will be activated and we can share some of the more private information that we're not allowed post, such as trees.

Hope to hear from you soon!

God that's frustrating! :P

I threw it into Photoshop to see if I could isolate/darken the lettering, but it was having very little effect. I then spent ten minutes holding my laptop at different angles and to me it now looks like it says 'Dempsey's Studios, 48 Lr O'Connell Street', or something similar at least. I can definitely see 'SEYS' at the end.

Hi Liam,

I'm from Dublin, my grandad John Duggan grew up in Clontarf.

I didn't know Julia was buried in Glasnevin, I had looked before but couldn't be sure which was hers. Do you have a record (birth or marriage) showing that her father was James? I had found her on the census with Christina as well, and in 1901 I think.

Have you ever contacted Guinness to verify the relationship between the two?

That is very interesting! My grandmother has always said that there was a connection to the Guinness family but nobody knows what it was.

My laptop is currently being repaired so I don't have access to all my files but I had found a possible birth cert for Julia naming her parents as Dennis Keely and Esther Nugent, nothing about James. Of course that doesn't mean it's correct but it was the only one I could find at the time. I think I do have Julias marriage cert but I shall have to wait until my laptop is fixed. Do you happen to have a marriage cert for them?

Tipperary / Re: Kennedy and Stapleton, The Mill, Cloughjordan

I was searching for my own relatives in Cloughjordan through the parish records in the NLI in Dublin. Cloughjordan was in it's own parish as far as I can recall, and there were LOADS of Kennedys. I remember this distinctly because we have (Dublin) Kennedys in the family and I was surprised to see the name pop up so often in my search.
