Hi Mike!

All of those names sound familiar, although not connected to my tree just yet. I do have a Bridget Macgoveran, although I’m not a direct descendant from her. I think she may be an in law (I have to look when I get home). I do have a few Prior (Pryor?) in my tree. You may want to check out a book called You CAN go home again by Jim McGowan (That’s his pen name - his real name is Jim McGovern). I bought it off of amazon. It has some interesting facts on the Red Oineys and tells of his trek back to county Cavan in the early 2000s. He mentions the Cavan center for Genealogy and stated that they have a ton of info on the McGoverns of Cavan. I just started reading it myself, but he is the one person in our family who knows almost everything there is to know about the McGoverns.

Hi Danielle, came across an Anne Mc Manus married to a Patrick Prior from Templeport, she was from Coraclassy and the date was 1857. Even Anne Mc Manus was popular,  I think I came across two dozen. IRISH GENEALOGY. IE is a great site and it's free. ROOTS IRELAND  WOULD COST YOU 31 POUND A MONTH.

Oh I know. I thought I found Anne’s family on the Ireland Census, the year and age matched, but it was a different Parish from where she was married, so I put it aside. And with no real information on her birth (I’m just going off of an old family tree from the 60’s or 70’s), other than the year, it makes it hard to distinguish between each Anne McManus. Thanks for all this info though! It’s helpful!

It seems like quite the journey of discovery for both of you, Danielle and Mike!

The Irish Genealogy site is the main General Register Office of Ireland pages where after 1864 when civil registration was introduced in Ireland, we started seeing the formal registration of births, marriages, adoptions and deaths. A wonderful resource, even though you may find more Anne McManus's!

We hope that both of you continue with your research, please keep us up to date with your journey, we are all making it with you. :)
