Welcome

My name is David Hanlon and I am the Site manager of this Web site.  My genealogy research is focused on the following families: Hanlon, Martin, Smith, Parris, Waddoups, Quinlivan, McEwan. 

I’m particularly interested in any information on Ellen Martin, born in Philadelphia, USA, around 1876. Ellen Martin gave birth to my grandmother, Doris ‘Lulu’ Gwendoline Martin on March 5, 1900 in Wellington, New Zealand. Doris was adopted by James Doyle (1852-1926) and his wife Alice Brooks (1867-1954) in Wellington on May 19, 1900, and became Doris Gwendoline Martin Doyle. In 1919 Doris married Albert Harold Hanlon (1890-1982), and in 1928 married Francis Eric Quinlivan (1899-1986). There was no record of Doris' father on the adoption file, so it looks like the father will remain a mystery. I don't know if Ellen stayed in New Zealand or returned to the USA.  I have hit a ‘brick wall’ on research so would appreciate any information or leads .  Thanks, David.
