Dear Editor, Hello my name is Maureen Glazebrook and I live in Australia and I am wondering if you be able to publish a request for assistance for me as our family history research seems to have hit a brick wall. I have appended below a summary of what I know and what we are looking for.
Connor/Casey/Maguire - Ballinderry
My great-grandparents Michael Connor and Elizabeth Maguire migrated to Melbourne, Australia in 1864.
I am trying to locate descendants of Michael's two brothers (Patrick baptised in 1825 and George baptised in 1828) as well as information on their parent, Michael Connor Snr and Mary Casey, and any other children they may have had.
The family lived in Ballinderry, Co. Westmeath and the baptisms mentioned above were performed in the Parish of Tubber and Rosemount.
We have been unable to find any more information on Michael Snr, and his wife or the other children.
If anyone could give assistance please contact me on email@example.com. Thank you.
Any assistance you can give would be greatly appreciated as we have gone through all the usual genealogical channels to no avail.
One point which could also be noted is that the family changed its name to O'Connor when it moved to Australia, reason unknown.
