Ward family Ireland
« on: Saturday 11 April 20 18:48 BST (UK) »
Hi my maternal grandmother was a Ward. Kathleen Ward may have been born 1905 - states she's 23 on marriage certificate Wexford  1931 to Charles Power traveller ? Not sure but later says he's a tinsmith, birth of his daughter Kathleen dealer. Later he's a known horse dealer.
All takes place in Southern Ireland.
Been told Wards were big traveller family in S. Ireland- suggestions that Wards associated with Mount Bellion, Taylor or Tuam.
If anyone is part of any of these family groups and could help, l would appreciate the imput. Kind thoughts Kat

Hi Aghadowey
I entered new detail about families that maybe connected in the vein hope that someone may be able to help further my enquiries. I thought as my grandmother was of Traveller stock l may become lucky.
As your probably aware Travellers don't put much store with  paper which makes it difficult to research.
If l have breached any duplication please accept my apologies and do feel free to delete my post.
Kathleen

As I have spent years trying to locate my grandmother birth. I have posted much about her as you can see.
I must now tell you all I have found her Different name how frustrating. ???
How did I find her Irish Newspaper archives.
Many thanks for help both with her and my Aunt who by the way used a surname that's wasn't hers.
Happy Days until I find another issue lol
