Hi, Maura. I believe we know each other from Narrogin, if you're the same Maura O'C. I will email you privately, so if I have the wrong Maura please accept my apology in advance and let me know so I can desist.
Julia and Maura, regarding the Burns/Byrne/Beirne connection above, my husband Mike had a Burns ancestor also who married a Fermanagh man in Western Australia in 1861, but that is a family line I have yet to pursue so I won't add any detail here at the moment, or suggest exploring possible common ancestors, until I check sources to verify what we think we "know" about our Mary Burns or her parents. Regards from Chris Timoney, Western Australia
