I have just joined this site, I came across it while searching for family information. like so many I am looking for answers but I may need a few more than most
My Dad and Grandparents are Irish but I know very little about them. A few facts about my Dad and his side but almost nothing about my grandmother.
I live in NZ so long distance research takes time and is not so easy.
I am hoping someone may know a wee bit so I can start to build some knowledge of her.
Her maiden name is Mary McLoughlin
Possibly born 1903 in Westmeath....her father is possibly Patrick
Mary died about 1936/7 in Ardee, County Louth aged 33 leaving 5 children.
She married Robert McElhannan. He was in the Irish Constabulary/Police.
I am about to request a death certificate to furthur my search ...but hope someone may know of her family, if she had bothers or sisters, names of her parents.
I would very much love to contact a descendant.
When she died her children had no contact with their mothers family or with each other. As they were all very young when they died no one had any memories of her.
Thankyou so much
