Do they look familiar to anyone ???

This was taken in South Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA circa 1900. I believe their last names are Reynolds/Murphy or Duffy/Cummings?? They arrived in Philadelphia about 1890.

I believe ...Duffy's were from County Donegal. ...Reynolds may be County Armargh.https://d2b4i25io5fq3v.cloudfront.net/17-08-2020/2ffbe11f-1edd-4be0-9ace-de7a.jpg

Thanks in advance.

Hi Dave, 

It's great to see you've found your way to the Community! :) Thank you for posting your picture here as well, and I hope you'll be able to find out more this way. 

Have you ever done any research into the records here on the island? Before 1864 records were kept in the form of church and parish records, and all of the surviving records have been sorted into county-based genealogical centres.

In 1864 civil registration was introduced in Ireland, which is when we started seeing the formal registration of births, marriages, adoptions and deaths. These records have been kept at the General Register Office of Ireland (GRO), to this day. 

You can also search through the Church records and Civil records on the Irish Genealogy website (free of charge). 

I hope this was helpful, and keep us posted on your findings.

Thank You Melin!

I am beginning my Irish journey now. I am really excited and I appreciate the research websites. Will post anything I find. I am going to start with the Duffy's (Stranolar, Donegal).

 Wish me Luck!
