My grandmother was from a large Irish family, I have her mother and fathers name from her marrage certificate and her daughter, but I don't seem to be getting any further than that does anyone know how to find Irish families please. Thank you x x Karen
I would be interested in any replies. My great grandfather came from Ireland (Cavan County?) about 1850. Another ancestor came about the same time. Yet even on Irish sites I can't find out anything. All I know about my great grandfather is his first and last name and his families in Canada. But I do know the other fellow's name, his wife's name, her parents' name and that he was married in Ireland. Either way, I am hitting a dead end!

I am desperate to find Family members if you could help.
I was going to check the Mass Vital records for any death entries. About when was he born and where? The family on the 1900 census did they use the surname Mello or Silva? It appears there is quite a large population of da Silvas and da Mellos from the Azores.
I would have to say that I am extremely jealous! I would take Vog over mundane desert anyday. If you do come up with possible family links let me know. Perhaps we could find the family he was visiting in the Mass vitals.
