November 2014 Update
I’ve had difficulty uploading updates to the on-line family tree since August. I’ve been working with My Heritage tech support but we haven’t been able to resolve the problem other than to recognize that our satellite internet connection may be a contributing factor. Corrections and additions to the tree may be delayed as a result.
I was thrilled to make some progress on this family by using two subtle clues from family photos to positively identify Sullivan and Leahy families in south Wales and refine their origins to County Cork, Ireland.
While I had my mind on Wales I researched the Davies branch but without success. The only theory I could develop is that the family was not together during the census periods. I found a possible family member in the hospital with his wife as a visitor and possibly their children that were listed as visitors or extended family (grandchild, niece, nephew etc) living with others. There were a lot of possibilities but nothing concrete.
This branch was extended using more clues from family members and connections with other family trees on-line. A temporary subscription to ancestry.ca helped out here as well as with the Sullivan family research.
