    Please notify me if the town you are researching isn't listed below and I will contact you as soon as it has been added so you can add your information.

    Missing Townlands

    Post  Mary O'Donnell Mulcahy on Mon Sep 28, 2009 4:59 am

    Annie...You will have your hands full with this new project you've undertaken, but I do hope it all works out as planned. It will be great!

    When time permits, would you add Loughnanoran and Meenacrieve to the townlands list? I did not see them out there.

    Many thanks and good luck with this project.

    Hi Annie--

    This is a great forum you've started. I would like to request the addition of Oughtmeen townland. I believe the closest town would be either Dunglow or Glenties.

    Please list Crickamore, Leffin, Keadew, Belcruit. Thank you.

    My name is Anthony Cerminaro. Now don't be tellin' me that I'm not Irish. My sainted grandmother was Bridget Ferry from Crickamore who emigrated to the United States in 1911, eventually settling in Hazleton, Pennsylvania, where she married James Veglia and gave birth to Doris Cerminaro, my mother. Bridget was the daughter of James Ferry of Leffin whose father was Dennis Ferry of Crickamore. Bridget's mother was Catherine Bonner, daughter of Bernard/Bryan Bonner of Keadew, Templecrone. James and Catherine were married on April 21, 1884 in St. Mary's, Belcruit.

    Towns of Donegal

    Post  Wendy Fairbairn on Fri Oct 02, 2009 3:40 am

    Dear Annie, My ancestors immigrated to Sydney, Australia, in 1840 and the shipping information I have states that the four siblings (Patrick, Daniel and Hannah (twins) and Margaret) came from Killygordon, Donegal, although Hannah's listing states Donaghmore, Donegal, as her "native place". Could you please list these towns in the hope I can be given some direction in my search.
