red mail McGinley family from Ballindrait, Lifford - (Ballindrait, Baile an Droichid - County Donegal)
My grandfather Charles was born at Rossgier (20th April 1918), in Ballindrait, Lifford, Co. Donegal. He was one of 7 children: Mary-Ann, Daniel, Robert, Bernard, Amelia, Charles & Margaret. His Father Charles McGinley (b. 26th Aug 1890) married his mother Mary Ellen Lynch in Murlog on 20th Nov 1911. Both his parents died young and the children lived with their grandparents Robert & Eleanor Lynch (nee Clarke) and Daniel & Mary-Ann McGinley (nee O'Donnell). Daniel McGinley was also born in Ballindrait (c. 1860) which leads me to believe that all of his children and grandchildren were also born there although that hasn't been confirmed yet. Mary Ann O'Donnell was from Clonleigh, Lifford, Co. Donegal and they married 13th Nov 1884 in Strabane RC Church.
red mail Balliintra Quinn family - (Ballintra - County Donegal)

Some of the family names include: John Quinn (born ca 1780-90), his wife Bridget Murphy (born same), their son James Quinn born 1828. Related but we are not sure how include a Daniel Quinn who owned a farm at the top of the street in Ballintra (the church of Ireland now stands there), Andrew Quinn, Patrick Quinn, Donal Quinn, Edward Quinn, Catherine Quinn, Mary Anne Quinn, Rose Quinn. All these people were born during the time period of 1780-1830. Other surnames connected to us include McGowan, Tunney, Cassidy, Gallagher, McGonigle, Forde, Travers - there are MANY others. Think there is a connection? Please contact me.

My family is from the Ballintra/Rafoarty area of Donegal. Am researching family history and looking for any contacts. I have the following: James Quinn, born 1828, Ballintra.

But I would love to find all family that I can. We were always told we were the last of the line. To find this wasn't true has been a godsend. Are you related to the Ballintra Quinn family?

In the census it also showed staying at the same address a family of Gallochers, Mother Margaret (believed to be the sister of Charles Boyle) her son Charles and wife Mary along with children Catherine aged 7 and Mary aged 2. All were born in Ireland except the youngest child Mary who was born in Blantyre Lanarkshire Scotland. It is belived that they came from the Glenties area, I know these two surnames are not unusual in this area and it is a bit like looking for a needle in a haystack however if anyone recognises any of this info or has any suggestions to make re further tracing I wouls be greatful to hear from you. Thankyou Beth

red mail Greencastle, Co. Donegal - (Greencastle - County Donegal)
I am particularly interested in my McLaughlin maritime ancestors from Shrove/Stroove and Greencastle Co. Donegal. My Great-Great grandfather was Captain Michael Mc Laughlin (c.1815 - 1905) of Brooklyn House Greencastle, who was involved in the maritime emigrant trade. He had a brother Daniel (c.1831 - 1905) and possibly Patrick (c.1820 - ?) and Neal (c.1828 - ?) all sea captains. I know about their sea careers, but not their families. One of Captain Michael Mc Laughlin's daughters Mary Jane (c.1848 - 1937) married William Henry Mc Cormick (c.1828 - 1900) from Derry and they are also linked to Breslins from the Glen of Glenties, one of whom Patrick Breslin (c.1847 - 1935) married Ellen Dunlevy (c.1861 - 1892), whose brother was James Dunlevy (c.1865 - 1935), solicitor, Donegal Town. My Grandfather was Hugh Mc Cormick (c.1888 - 1958) dentist of Derry and Brooklyn House Greencastle who married Ellen Dunlevy's daughter, Mary Christina in 1914. Their son Hugh Eimar Mc Cormick was my father. I am interested in any family connections and also family and maritime history in the Inishowen Peninsula in general and further afield and have quite a lot research done already. Richard.
