Ruane Family

Hello,

My name is Matthew Davin.  My Grandmother was Bridget Ruane.  She was born the 18th of December 1877.  She attended the Convent of Mercy in Gort,.  

Her parents were John Ruane and Mary Kelly.  According to the 1911 census, Mary lived on Crow Street in Gort.

Bridget came to the United States (Boston Massachusettes) with her sister Mary around 1895 to 1900.  

I would appeciate any information that you may have regarding her or her family.

Thank you,

Matt

    I can't explain the 3 Johns as I checked for death records but there are none that match. Transcription error perhaps - could one be her sister Mary?

    The Irish Censuses are free online at http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/. There are 316 Ruanes in Galway in the 1901 & 344 in 1911 - you might want to look for Pat & John(s) to see if they married and had families

  • Hello Col,

    Thank you for the information. My family will love to see this.

    I will definitely look for more Ruanes.

    Regards,

    Matt

  • Matt, one other idea: the National Library of Ireland website has the R C parish registers free to search https://registers.nli.ie/

    The Gort baptisms are there up to 1881 so might be worth a look; they are the originals and can be hard to decipher however
