I am an amateur genealogist, living in Dublin, Ireland.|
I am particularly interested in the Pigott and Edgeworth families of Ireland and their descendants.
The graves of Irishmen who fought in WW1 & WW2 are also of interest.

they will not follow you,
The vagabond who is rapping at your door,
is standing in the clothes that you once wore"

One day, we will all become Fallen Gravers

Thanks John for this fantastic work-we are all in your debt.

I have edited the date of birth on the entry that you have for my brother, Laszlo Polgar, buried in Bohernabreena Cemetery. His date of birth is 24 December 1949, and not 1950 as showing currently.
Many thanks for your work.
|sandlotball||De Valera Family Gravesite|
The photographs are outstanding. Outstanding. Thank You.
The script is challenging. I'll send you an email shortly.
Never mind the first part. I'm just now looking at the photos.
I had no idea there were separate tombstones. Thanks so much.
Where are you getting the different years from ?
The ones I have come from Terry de Valera's autobiography. They're also the dates that correspond to information in a number of de Valera biographies published over the past 45 years.
Here's something you might be help with. His daughter Dr Máirín was a Professor of Botany at UCG for many decades and is buried in Galway - somewhere. Likely in a graveyard in a Gaeltacht, but I've never found the location.
|dara morefield||Hynes: Desmond and Thurlough (Terence)|
Thank you so much for adding the information re my two uncles, Des and Thurlough Hynes. There is another Hynes sibling, the youngest, my mother, Ita Veronica (known as I.V.) now I.V. Morefield, and at the age of 89 living in Bedford, England. Mom lost touch with uncle Thurlough (Terence) when he moved to Canada, where he later died, He had at least 4 children, my cousins, now probably grandparents themselves. I would very much like to trace them, if at all possible, while Mom is still alive. Could you help me in this??
By the way, our grandfater, Francis Hynes, was himself a stonemason at Glasnevin Cemetery, which is how the family grave comes to be there.
Many thanks again.
|Gearóid||Catherine Redmond Carroll|
Hi John, I see you have included census information on the record of Catherine Redmond Carroll in Templeogue. I note you have two Grand children listed by the same name (Alice). This is incorrect the last entry should read Anne age 11 years as per the 1911 census. Anne Redmond McKnight was my grandmother. Refards. Gerry McKnight

|Gearóid||RE: Carroll and Redmond families|
Hi John thanks for message. I didn't directly message Vern regarding the Redmonds, but I did edit the information. Will this be sufficient or do I need to make direct contact. I did many edit regarding the Redmonds as 5 of John and Margaret children are buried in Bluebell along with their spouses and children/grand children. Regards Gerry
