Please remove my access to your tree.

Please also note that you should not include living people without their permission.

Michelle was asked to remove her other two threads as replies had landed on this one.

She thought she could upload her dna details to Genes - so I would presume she was looking for dna matches.

For location, for helpers' reference -

SR District/Reg Area - Fermoy
Death of JULIA REDMOND in 1915
Date of Death 1915
Group Registration ID 5458660
SR District/Reg Area Fermoy
Deceased Age at Death 26

Address: Kildinan
Labourer's wife.
Cause of death: childbirth 11 days, pneumonia 3 days.
Informant: Peter Redmond, widower.

That would make her born c1888, rather than 1890 - but I can't find a record 1887 -1892 with father Timothy.
Nor a marriage of Timothy Cahill and Julia Riordan.

SR District/Reg Area - Fermoy
on 08 September 1910
Date of Event 08 September 1910
Group Registration ID 2070714
SR District/Reg Area Fermoy

Address of both: Kildinan, Rathcormac.
Both "of full age" - which makes them both born at least c1888-1889.
Fathers: Henry Redmond, labourer, and Timothy Cahill, labourer.

As you have posted your query on more than one board, I'm not sure what exactly you're looking for, and it's not clear from your posts.

Are you hoping to find living relatives?
Or are you trying to extend your tree further into the past?

Unfortunately, ifi you are looking for actual records, Irish records can be quite patchy, as many have been destroyed.

Thanks for the pm. The only thing that you can upload onto Genes is a tree.

If you are not getting Irish matches on My Heritage then you are unlucky. I have loads but as none of them have trees going back far enough I can’t work out any connections.

Get your Dad to do a dna test and upload it to Gedmatch, then you will be able to work out which matches of yours are not on his list.

Hiya sorry guys I did not realise I had got so many reply. I am completely stuck on my Irish side of the familyI am not getting hints matches records or any thing MyHeritage where my main family tree is located.
I did my DNA with LIving DNA and managed some how to upload to GEDmatch. Unfortunately Living have changed something and you can no longer upload to MyHeritage 123 etc. My dad has an extensive Family tree on Ancestry going into to his side of the family.
Thank you for for all the research you guys have done. Thank you nameslessone I did not understand your message lol sorry but thanks for brining my attention to the threads.

I have sent a message to say she needs to return to the boards as it looks as though she is new.

Added. 8.36

Well, she has read my message and asked for access to my tree :-S


ArgyllGran Report 25 Jul 2021 15:42

Is this your maternal grandparents' marriage?

Marriages Mar 1932 (>99%)
Harland William Morley Whitby 9d 848
Morley Gertrude Harland Whitby 9d 848

Which grandparent is the one with the Irish ancestors?
How far back?

From a quick rummage on Ancestry, it seems to be at least a couple of generations before that.
Perhaps if you give us names and dates of some of the Irish relatives, we can work forwards to the present day.

Have removed birth but left marriage details


ErikaH Report 24 Jul 2021 16:16

As John is a member of GR, it may be tactful to remove his birth details

Michelle can find the info herself easily enough if necessary, although as she has him in her tree, one assumes she already has the details.

Also, if I read her post correctly, it’s her mother’s side she’s looking for

Your parents married in England - a copy of their marriage cert will tell you the names of each of their fathers, assuming you don't already have that info.....................

Several members have you (and your sisters) in their GR trees.......have they asked for your permission to include you?

Please delete the threads you have posted on the other boards. Thank you

GR isn't a DNA-matching site.

To get help on here, you need to have first names, birth years and birthplaces on which to base searches of available records.

Have you tried doing any research yourself?
