    1. [Irish-in-Pennsylvania] [ADMIN NOTE] The Rootsweb lists are ending communication March 2, 2020 Were we go from here
    2. Lauren Boyd McLachlan
    3. Dear List Members: By now, you have heard that Ancestry is closing the Rootsweb mailing lists to live communication.As of March 2, 2020 you will not be able to send or receive messages via Rootsweb lists. Whatever is currently housed under the Domain Name Rootsweb, will remain until Ancestry makes any decisions it feels necessary in future. The List Archives for all the LIsts at Rootsweb are to remain viewable. and searchable. I do not find their search engine to be robust. You may want to browse each year and month if you do not find searching the list to turn up what you are seeking. Also, trying a google search can be effective. You have about a day to post your last ditch messages. BE SURE to put your contact information in the body of the post so that people can contact you in future. Be aware that this informaiton will be permanently viewable to anyone searching the archives in future, so be prudent and do not compromise your own security. When the lists close, tha Admin tools also go away. I won't be able to assist with Rootsweb list items. The Rootsweb/Ancestry Message Boards will remain active. You CAN post there. You do NOT need an Ancestry paid account. You do, however, need to have a login ID and password. If you do not have an Ancestry account, you will not be able to have direct contact with authors of posts in private. Consider putting your contact info in the body of your messages. Where do we go from here? Firtsty, Thank you for adding to the body of the your families history since 1996 on Rootsweb.com I am the Admin for about 100 surname, location, clan and DNA lists. I am downloading all the subscriber addresses. I have not yet created a place to move the lists. However, that is the end aim. Bear with me as I have been a List Admin at Rootsweb since 1996 and have 100 lists to deal with in attempt to preserve a friendly email experience with all who are accustomed to that environment. IF you are on Facebook, there are groups you can join, if you have not already, to discuss and share your Interests. You can easily search and use the "group" classification to find all which may apply. Karen and Brian who began Rootsweb, and also created LInkpendium, were heavily considering creating "Rootsweb the Next Generation." I held off acting to move the lists elsewhere as I was hoping they would go forth with their perceived craziness and I could move all to RWTNG. Alas, life is too complicated to create such a venue at this time. That said, they will be adding links as they are sent to them, to show where the Rootsweb lists have gone. I have not asked Cyndi Ingle of Cyndi's list, butt I suspect she may do the same. Lots of work. There are currently over 31, 000 lists housed at Rootsweb. If the admin is active, they will be considering options. So...Let me assure you that I will not use your email addresses for any purpose but to alert you where I have found to continue this conversation. If your list is associated to an organization, I will be supplying your information to them for followup as they may have established a presence elsewhere of which they can alert you. Happy Trails, Lauren Boyd McLachlan Rootsweb Volunteer since 1996 Ancestry Volunteer since 2000 100 Lists 235 Message Boards

    1. [Irish-in-Pennsylvania] Christmas KELLY wish>Ireland>Pittsburgh PA
    2. acmbjc via
    3. Hello Listers: Here is my Christmas wish for my KELLY ancestry. Searching for anything about my 2nd Great-grandfather, John Patrick or Patrick John KELLY. Born in Ireland (of course) about 1820 and died (c. 1853--56) after the conception of my Great-grandmother, Mary Anna KELLY, b. June 1854, Pittsburgh, Allegheny Co., PA. John Patrick was married to Mary Ann DOLAN (b. 1826, Co. Galway, Ireland--d. 1890, Allegheny City/now the Northside of Pittsburgh, PA). I have NO idea where or when they married, but from family notes, it is *guessed* they were married here in the U.S. Two children born to this couple. Issue/child #1: Patrick Francis/P.F. KELLY, b. Feb 1852, Pittsburgh; d. Jul 1896, Pittsburgh; buried in Calvary Catholic Cemetery, Pittsburgh, Allegheny Co., PA. Issue/child #2: Mary Anna KELLY (see above). She died in Feb 1908, Northside Pittsburgh, PA; buried in St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery, Bloomfield/Lawrenceville, suburb of Pittsburgh. Other surnames associated with the offspring of these children include: CAVANAUGH BLATTNER EMERY STALEY KNEELAND PHILLIPS THOMSON BAIN and GALLAGHER. Mary Ann nee DOLAN KELLY married a second time, Sept. 1856 to a Richard HALL (b.c. 1817, Ireland--d. 1875, Allegheny City/Pittsburgh). Four known children: John; Richard; Elizabeth/Lizzie; and Ida Julia. Mary Ann nee DOLAN KELLY HALL had two known brothers who also came to America. Martin DOLAN (1822--1872) and Thomas DOLAN (1826--1877). Both brothers resided in central and western PA. Any help greatly appreciated, as have been at this line for close to 30 years! Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and Peace and Health in the New Year. Regards, Marybeth Corrigall northeast Ohio acmbjc@aol.com

    1. [Irish-in-Pennsylvania] Early 1700 Irish records
    2. Carl Hilton via
    3. I have a Lancaster PA church record stating that one of my ancestors was born in Armagh Ireland in 1725… I have been unable to find any ship record of immigration, nor any records for Ireland. My understanding is that many records were lost in some fire or some such calamity. David Hilton b 1725 Armagh Ireland. Father was Edward and he had a sister Agnes. Edward HILTON had some land Warranted in Lancaster County in 1737… IMMIGRATION: I have been unable to find any HILTON that immigrated prior to 1737... The closest I have found is the Ship SUPPLY that docked in Feb 1726 in Annapolis, MD, had the following people: Edward Leigh, Agnes Leighton, Richard Leighton... My argument that these could be them was that We know Edward Hilton had a daughter named Agnes, so if Edward Leigh and Agnes Leighton were husband and wife. In Edwards will, he left property to his daughter Agness Wishet, was she named after his wife? Then Richard was most likely related... there is a Richard Hilton that owned land in Lancaster County in 1750.... Now, this ship brought Felons.... the saga continues.

    3. Donna, I ran into a similar situation with ancestors from Scranton and someone at the local genealogy center told me that most Scranton Irish came from Mayo. So I contacted the Northern Mayo Genealogy Center in Ireland and I found most of them. I gave them a $200 donation and I got unbelievable of research from them. I did things like look for all Patrick O'Connor baptisms between certain years.

    3. Dia Duit Irish in Pennsylvania Listers: It seems that today is the 11th Anniversary of my being the Volunteer Administrator for this list. Time has surely flown. How is your research going? Have you had any breakthroughs? Are you still chipping away at the same brick wall? Or are you busily decorating a new one? My 11 year old message still has merit. I have had a couple of changes in that time.

When was the last time you posted? Have you ever? Or are you simply waiting for your cousins to drop in and give you the pieces you are missing to your genealogical puzzle? I would appreciate it if all of you took your sledge hammers in hand and began to swing away at the many brick walls I am certain lurk in this list. Please post a query to let us know who you are researching, that is on topic for this list. Be sure to mention dates and locations. Do not simply dump data reports on the list. If you do, *please* follow or precede with a query re each of your burning questions for each generation you may provide. That is a lot easier to read and respond to than reports that may include 135 or so names and several generations. Post as many queries as needed to ask all of your questions. Keep the messages to a managable size and be sure to have an appropriate subject line that reflects the content of your message.

    1. [Irish-in-Pennsylvania] Duffy's Cut
    2. CHICKSMOM-BETHANNE via
    3. In 1832, 57 Irish immigrants were hired by Philip Duffy work Mile 59 of the Pennsylvania & Columbia Railroad in Malvern, PA, as part of what would become the "Main Line." Less than two months later, all were dead, thrown in an unmarked, mass grave. The true story of their deaths is now coming to light but is not yet complete. The Irish Network of Philadelphia will be hosting a Symposium entitled “Duffy’s Cut and The Arts” on October 11, 2014, at Immaculata University in Immaculata, PA in support of this ongoing project. The vision is to demonstrate the impact this discovery has had beyond the world of academia and the passion that is evoked by this American immigrant story. Because there is still much work to be done (excavation, DNA testing, historical and genealogical research) by the Duffy’s Cut team, they are hoping to raise both funds and awareness to allow them to continue their work.

Am looking for records for an Ann Knox and James McClure who emigrated from Co. Donegal. They are in the 1850 U.S. census for Ross Twp., Allegheny Co. with children ages 2 yrs and 6 mo. both born in PA. Most likely protestant, either Presbyterian or Church of Ireland. I need a starting point to look for records, if there are any.
