THOUGHT: “We consider we do not have enough of much in this world — money, friends, prestige, education, and so on… The real trouble is not that people don’t have enough of these things but that these things in themselves are not enough” Selwyn Hughes.

WARNING: People are being charged up to 100 euro by accountants to pay household charge, there are free ways to pay, but commercial interests are cloaking them.

RELATIVES: Looking for information on ancestors of Jeremiah Kennelly ( born 13 Dec 1796) married to Julia Hickey, who came to Canada with their family around 1845 and settled in Ontario. Most of their children moved to the Saginaw MI area around the 1860’s. I have had contact with several descendants but haven’t been on the forum for awhile and would like to reconnect especially with the descendants of Julia Kennelly who married Philip Holihan (or Holahan).Looking forward to any info. Thanks

Looking for info for Jeremiah and Nora Kennaly possibly from NY or NJ. They had one natural born daughter (Gertrude) and an adopted daughter (my grandmother, Mary Margaret Smith Kennaly Morrison Savoy.) Mary was adopted from St. Mary’s Orphanage in 1924 or 1926, born 12-8-1916.
