Right, so basically I know most of the names of my grand-aunts and uncles from my father.
He said he had an uncle Johnny, but i can't find info about this Johnny, even though i can find some birth records for most of his brothers and sisters.
HOWEVER, i found a birth record for a James which fits the family EXACTLY.
I know long ago in Ireland families tended to change names as they grow older, for example Ellen to Nellie, or Julia to Sheila is a common one also, and even John to Jack or Sean or vice versa. Is John to James a possibility also?
But would it be accurate to say my dad's uncle Johhny was once James?
Johnny wasn't the only one i couldn't find info about also btw!
Exact same situation with Kathleen and Margaret...my dad remembers an aunt Kathleen...but would it be possible that she was born Margaret?
