Tracing Relations.

Patrick Hogan is trying to trace his relations. His Great-great Grandfather was Michael Hogan (b. 1829- d. 1915) who was married to Mary Kilkeary and they had six children Patrick (my great grandfather)
Peter, Bridget, John, Michael and Mary. He lived in Lorrha where Patrick visited in July 2015. He does have a lot of information gathered already as listed below.  If you think you can help Patrick he can be contacted at:  Estrada de Seac Pai Van, One Oasis – Pena Tower 2, 30E, Coloane, Macau or his father in the US can be contacted at: James E Hogan, 612 Hood Blvd, Fairless Hills, PA 19030.

I have been using Ancestry.com to trace my family history. This is what I have so far:

I am a direct descedent of John Ryanborn in Lorrha in 1829 who migrated to Australia approx 1864 with his wife Margaret (nee Callaghan) and two children Bridget and William. John Ryan's parents were John Ryan (farmer) and Bridget Nevan and Margaret's parents were Morgan Callaghan and Bridget? Am doing family tree and seeking other descendents. Plan to visit Lorrha end of August 2010.

Last May we visited Lorrha to visit my great great grandparents home which was built by them in the early 1800's. It was a memorable time for me and I was overwhelmed by my visit. I am proud to think they were born in such a beautiful place and I read your news every week. I have met some local people from Lorrha and hope to see them again. Ireland is very beautiful and I am proud to have Irish ancestors. I am from Australia and my family came here in 1862 by Abbysinian.
