Just got back to the US from a 2 week visit to Ireland, with one week in Clonmany. The people and sites were incredible! During my stay I attempted to get birth records for my grandmother, Bertha Harkin or her sister Catherine Harkin. I visited cemetary's, St. Mary's Parish House, libary's, and St. Colan's in Letterkenny. I had no luck. I will continue my search in the US, but need to ask for help from this message board. My info is as follows:|
Bertha Harkin MY GRANDMOTHER - (Catherine Harkin - Sister "Katy/Kay")
John Harkin - Margaret Doherty (Parents)
Bertha was born in either 1900-1901 or 1904-1905 (Conflicting Info)
Bertha left for the US in 1915 +/-
Bertha's sister was younger
It is rumored that Bertha had a child (Bridget) out of wedlock.
Thanks for any and all help...
