Bio and Links
Bio Photo My home town is Westport, Co Mayo, Ireland.
I joined FAG while researching my Ancestors who emigrated to Chicago.

I have realised my dream - travelled to Chicago and visited 3 of the graveyards where my Ancestors are buried.

Most of my Memorials/Cemeteries are in Ireland. If you find a relative and wish to add/change information,please feel free to contact me.

Most of my Memorials have Graveshots. I flower all my Memorials and link them with relative's. Ones that may not have Graveshots are my own relatives where I have not located their resting spot, although I know the Cemetery.

I am happy to transfer Memorials to Family Members, however my photographs are copyright and I would like to be notified should anyone require a copy of same.

Thank You to Jim and Tammy who have helped me find the resting place of my Lavelle Family in NY.

In the early part of 2012 I set up the Mayo Genealogy Group in Castlebar, we have monthly meetings in the National Museum of Country Life, Turlough.
We have set up a Facebook Page, if you would like to join and post queries about your Mayo Ancestors check out our page.

Hi Dympna
I am a friend of Jade Schmitt.
She told me you were kind enough to take a picture of the John Rice Headstone.
John Rice is my wife Colleen's great great grandfather and we both thank you for your help in locating and filming the headstone.
Thank You

Rice from Islandeady
Hi Dympna! Thank you so much for the photos of the graves of my relatives! I appreciate it! I had been hoping Ellen's parents, Michael Hurst and Catherine O'Neill Hurst might be in the same plot but it doesn't appear so (based on how the stone reads, the plot seems to be quite occupied!). It's possible the Hursts are in unmarked, graves, too, as I suspect Michael died in the 1840s; while Catherine died in 1881. Anyway, I appreciate you taking the time to visit the Rices and photograph them! I know the odds of me being able to do so myself are very low.

John Flanagan
Hi there i see you have a grave of a john flanagan who died in 1983 novemeber. I am looking for information on a John Flanagan possibly born 1938 or around that year but i donr know if hes alive still. When i saw the grave you added i wonder if this one is mine. My John Flanagan was born in county Mayo Luisburgh have you done much research there? i think he was born there if he wasnt that he certainly lived there because i have letters dated from there.

Old Abbey Franciscan Cemetery
My relatives the Kellys are buried in the Old Abbey cemetery. I wrote the Franciscans but did not get a reply about an interment list.... How do I find out where my relatives are buried there and if there is a stone please? Any info you can give me about the cemetery is appreciated. Thank you..It is the Old Abbey cemetery in Claregalway. It is my understanding there is another cemetery close by to it?

O' names
Please include the apostrophes when you know they are part of the name, with no spaces (that is, not O'(space)Brien). The reason is, the search engine wont find O'Brien names or any other apostrophe names unless you do. I know this because my name is O'Quinn. Leads to duplications, too.
