Hello!  I'm trying to find the ship's manifest for my maternal great grandparents.  Their names are James O'Donnell and Bridget Magee from Donegal.  James was born 1837 and Bridget was born 1847.  They were married in Donegal October 1867 and had their first child in Philadelphia in Oct/Nov 1868.  Someone found the attached record which is likely them.  I know from their marriage record that the names of the fathers are correct and the date and place of marriage is correct.  On this record the ages are not correct but that could be a transcription error.  I have attached the record.  Thanks for much for your help.  (I have checked about 4 of the SS Denmark's manifest and did not see them.  Could they have changed ships?  Thanks in advance for your help.  Alice Marnell Galcik

    Welcome back to Ireland Reaching Out!

    Bridget Magee was from Meenbane townland in Stranorlar civil parish so you did post in the correct parish. FYI All parish postings end up on the main message board. James was from Stralongford townland in Convoy civil parish which is the parish to the north of Stranorlar.

    The civil marriage record had James as 30 years old and Bridget was 24.  https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy.ie/churchrecords/images/marriage_returns/marriages_1867/11511/8233693.pdf

    The manifest info provided to you may not be for your ancestors. James and Bridget O'Donnell were very common names.
