Looking for relatives

Hello.  My grandparents came from County Donegal, and settled in Canada.  I believe I must have second cousins still in Ireland, and would love to find them, but have no idea how to go about the search.  Can anyone advise me how to proceed?

Thank you

Debbie Alexander

  • Hi
    Do you know where in Donegal they were from?
    Some towns have historical societies and there is a Donegal historical society.
    Can I ask your family/name that you are searching for.
    Good luck with your search.
    Liberty.
