|Bio and Links|
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.

|Susan ||RE: Re: Dankert, Concordia|
I am not related. As I add photos I like to add other members of the family together as much as I can. I use familysearch.org. I was merely joining family members together and did a little work on familysearch.org.Thank you very much for the offer. It is very kind of you. Thank you again.

I used a photo of yours for my relative before I realized you had a copyright. When I entered it I added your name and the website address. I am sorry. I didn't realize this until now when I thought I would look thru the entire cemetery for more relatives. I have it on familysearch.org. Have a look. Maybe you can help me?

|Tim LaVelle||RE: Lavelle Family|
Thank you. I don't do Facebook but I will try and locate the website. Regards, Tim
|Tim LaVelle||Lavelle Family|
I found you by accident!! I am researching the LaVelle (Lavelle) family tree. My name is Tim LaVelle. In Ohio, in St. Mary's cemetery in Little Hocking, I have found many ancestors and also a link to you through Thomas Lavelle.
I wonder if I can ask for your help or guidance in moving my search along to figure out more about my Irish ancestors. More than one gravestone states "born in Co. Mayo" but I am having no end of difficulty in finding and showing the parents or grandparents who likely remained in Ireland. If you are a member of Ancestry.com I would be happy to show you the work I have done. Also I saw the list of Lavelles you have worked on and it is amazing. Thanks, Tim.

If you are friends or family of this hero, can you contact me? Thank you and have a good day.
|Mary Ellen Joyce||Edward Matthew Joyce|
Edward Matthew Joyce was my paternal grandfather. I never met him as he passed away when my father was only 12 years old. My fathers given name was Edward Malone Joyce, but he always went by Edward Matthew. He had three brothers - Patrick (deceased), William (deceased) and James (living in Ohio).
My paternal grandmother was Isabel (Malone) Joyce and we always called her "Gammy." She lived in Toledo after my grandfather died.
|Scotty||RE: Meelick Cemetery|
Hello and thank you for your response. I thought you might know, as a local person, whether it is correct to refer to one cemetery section as Meelick and the part across the street as Meelick (Old), and if this is used consistently. If I request that the memorials be merged, Find A Grave will need that information I think. I would have called the entire place by the same name. Thanks again and sorry for the duplicate message.

|Scotty||Meelick Cemetery vs. Old Meelick|
Greetings! I live in USA but recently traveled to County Mayo to visit kinfolk both living and departed. I created some memorials for Meelick Cemetery and loaded photos. Some of these have been duplicated and placed in Meelick (Old) Graveyard. I want to make this all correct. Do you know if one side of the road is known locally as the "old" part and the other side the new part? At this point I may need to ask the good Find a Grave folks to merge the memorials. See memorials for Patrick Muldowney, died 1920, in both Meelick Cemetery and Meelick (old) Graveyard and you will see what I mean. Of course they do refer to the same person. Thank you for any clues! The ones I created are indeed in the older part (that side of the road) but not in the very old part (behind the tower). What to do?

|Dee Townsend||RE: Re Needham & Fadden, Westport|
Yes, I am member of Mayo site on FB.....My McFadden's came over during the 1850s, straight to Joliet, Illinois. Years ago wrote to Mayo Government Genealogy office and they were able to furnish me with marriage bands and baptism of first child...but advise I would be wasting money to pursue further as not many records before 1840s and especially since they were not land owners....Did find a brother of my gr. grands who came over before them.......and have made a couple of DNA connections thru Ancestry.com......a few months ago I did post my line on FB Mayo site.....as you said, there are other McFaddens on there and so far we haven't connected....thanks for the offer....
|Judith Roberts||Moran family|
Yes, that is my correct email address. I will friend you on Facebook! Thank you again for any help you can offer.
