There was a Rev. David Mair  is he one  of yours and I can give you a death notice for a John and Martha Mairs.
If this is being watched then feel free to say yes or not.

I dont want to spend time typing them in to find I have wasted my time.

Nancy Mairs was a daughter of James Mairs- the marriage appeared in the local papers.
Have not come acress an Andrew Mairs in Macosquin area. There are quite a few Marthas in the Mairs family.
Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!

Hi there....I've just joined up and found this thread on the Mairs and/or Mayrs of Crosscandley...which, is....'us!!  i.e. that's my last name and enough work has been done by 'us' to recognise the family tree mentioned here.

So...first of all....who are you and/or do I already know you?!

Although it may be your name, and you have done a lot of work on it, and others as well, I dont think you have the monopoly of research, that is free to anyone, as is sharing but when you question who is who that is an invasion of privacy.

I suspect that elagh1 was just surprised to see a thread about his family here on the Derry board and is curious about finding new relatives and hoping to exchange family details.
Welcome to Rootschat, David. After you've made 3 posts you'll be able to use PM (personal message) system to exchange details like email addresses, etc. which we aren't allowed to post on the boards.

P.S.- I'm not related to your family but have collected a lot of details on them as well as other local families.

Oh dearie me.

Perhaps my personal style of communication in that particular moment gave rise to a misunderstanding or misinterpretation.

Meaning, by way of explanation and enlightenment... that my intuition, or rather my slight suspicion, at the time of writing that post, transpired to have much veracity... namely, the member in question, by an amazing coincidence of timing is a direct member of my own ancestral family, we are already very well known to one another, have met in person despite living thousands of miles apart and are in fairly frequent communication outside of this forum, about, among other matters, our family tree. A tree, which of course, I immediately recognized in the thread, and hence permitted myself to become a trifle animated with excitement.

Regrets if I have somehow inadvertently and unintentionally offended your, or anyone else's, personal sensibilities.

Be well.

Regards

David

Thanks for the understanding Moderator.

I just posted my response before I read your own observation.

Am looking forward to moving into more family information in the time ahead...but for now must sign off as it is definitely time to retire, given the hour at my current point on the globe!

Regards

David / Elagh1
