Just starting on Keogans of Tow Law
« on: Thursday 26 February 15 17:29 GMT (UK) »
Hi.
I've just started researching my mum's side of the family. My grandmothers maiden name was Keogan, she had brothers John and Lawrence and I have managed to get some limited information on about 4 generations back from the census. There are lots of John's, James and Joseph's but I need to find their wives maiden names and children for quite a few of them. Can anyone help?

Hi and welcome to Rootschat. Are this family from Tow Law in County Durham? We could do with a bit more information on this family to know how to help you best. We don't want to be telling you things you already know :)

Yes they are. In later years some of the family (Lawrence and John) are in Consett but they originate in Tow Law.
