Ronan family
I have been searching for my maternal grandmothers family on and off for several years. I have recently learned that she was married and widowed in Ireland before she left for the U.S. Her last name on her marriage certificate to my grandfather was Helen F. Ronon. She was born Helen F. Power in Lacken/Dungarvan in 1890. Since Waterford and Cork are neighboring counties and I found Ronan's in Cork I thought perhaps someone might have some information that would help me in my search.
Born approx. 1887. Searching for his family believed to be Helen and Anna May (daughters) and son Maurice Burns born 14.12.37 County Cork. Maurice left Ireland in 1957 to go to Australia and as far as I know has had no contact with any relatives since leaving. Really need to contact someone who knows of him or family alive or deceased.

red mail Looking for Donovan Family Roots
I am looking for information about my great grandmother ne Marie C Donovan. She was born in 1898 or 99 in County Cork. Her parents were Patrick and Catherine Donovan and they had 3 other children, Alice and twins Ray and Roy. I think they immigrated to the states between 1900 and 1920, eventually settling in Perry Iowa, where the entire family except Roy is buried. Patrick's death is not marked, and Catherine died on 11/19/1942. Alice was single until her death in 1980, and Marie was married to Charles Jones and passed away in 1976. Her only child, Anna Mae, preceded her in death in the 1950's. I don't think either of my great, great uncles married or had any children, so it looks like my siblings and I may be the only surviving descendents. If anyone has information, I would be so very happy to hear from you. Regards, Betsy
