    1. [Australia-New-Zealand] Looking for James McGUIRE descendants
    2. Hey gang, I'm looking for details on, and descendants of, a James McGUIRE, son of John & Catherine McGUIRE. John & Catherine McGUIRE arrived, along with James's half-sister Mary Jane, in Melbourne on 9 Mar 1857 on the Admiral Boxer. James appears to have been born in Australia after their arrival. They arrived as Assisted Immigrants. Research thus far has determined the following: - John was born in County Clare, Ireland in 1827, and died in 1901 in Hawthorn West, Melbourne,Victoria; - James may actually be John, as the only birth record I can find for a McGUIRE child with parents John & Catherine is one in 1864 for a John McGUIRE; - Catherine's maiden name may be SANDS, the maiden name listed in the above birth entry. A death for a Catherine McGuire (nee SANDS) in 1907 gives the correct birth year of 1833. My connection to James is that his half-sister Mary Jane McGUIRE is my g-g-grandmother. Regards Kevin Ettery
