red mail Donnelly family research
I am presently researching my family history and have a fair deal of information. My father, Philip, and his family came from the village of Springhill, near Barrhead, Renfrewshire. My Uncle Thomas (Tommy)Donnelly was the last member of the family, as far as I know, to stay in Barrhead. He was probably recognisable in and around the town by his artificial leg, long coat and hat. My Grandfather was a James Donnelly who married Bridget McManus on 10th August 1906. My Great Grandfather was Thomas Donnelly who was married to Margaret Hart. My Great Great Grandfather was Henry Donnelly married to Helen Kerr and I believe they came from Ireland as did many families in search of work. Henry owned a butchers shop in Dovecothall and 2 of his sons, Thomas & James, worked there also. While my search takes me across the Irish Sea, I am still firmly focussed on the Barrhead area. What I am searching for now is any photographs, epecially of Henry Donnelly's butcher's shop, or any snippet of information related to my ancestory that may be lying in attics, basements and cellars. I know that my uncle had photographs and items of the family in his house as I saw them as a small boy. My Uncle and his wife have passed over and I have no knowledge of their whereabouts. Please remember that the slightest of information is very important to the research. Thank you very much for your time and interest.
