I am looking for my grandparents history. My grandfather Thomas Joseph Ryan was born in 1862 in Murroe Limerick\Tipperary. His father Patrick Ryan was a laborer and he married Bridget Ryan. Thomas Ryan arrived in Moreton Bay Australia  I think in 1889 but this has not been confirmed. Thank you

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    I searched the subscription site Roots Ireland and located an 1861 baptismal record for a Thomas Ryan with parents Patrick and Bridget. Looks like he had two younger sisters Catherine and Mary (twins) baptized in April 1865. Is this the correct family?

    I believe that this is his family. Is there any other information you can help me with or advise me where to look- for example his parents history - when he sailed to Moreton Bay-  -

    did all his siblings go with him?

    Thank you
