parts of parishes other than Cahirsiveen could be included in the registration district of Cahirsiveen - e.g. Valencia, Dromod, Prior and Kilcrohane
Again thanks for searching for me. I really appreciate the fact that you took the time to search for me.
I searched the church records myself and I found the names and dates of birth of my grandfather and his siblings, which was a great help.
Many thanks to the person that transcribed those records. It must have been a painstaking labour.
On a more poignant note two of my great grandparents, James and Catherine, must have died as young children, just looking at the census returns.
My father never knew he had an aunt and uncle by those names. They aren't even recorded on the family headstone. I suppose times were different and people didn't like to talk about things like that.
On another note I feel bad asking my dad all these questions when he doesn't really have answers for me and the information he has is vague - not his fault, but I think people didn't talk about things like that years ago. I would love to ask him if he knew the names of his own grandfather's siblings. I am new to genealogy and I don't want to put him under any pressure. But he's curious too and asks me if I have found out any new information.
He did ring me yesterday to say that Daniel Shea's parents were James Shea and Mary Galvin. He thinks they built the farm house in Clahanelinahan, Caherciveen.
Sorry for such a long post.
