Looking for information on the parents  of my great grandmother Winifred Ellen Kane born in Galway 1850. Immigrated to the US around 1870.  Thanks for any leads

    The subscription site Roots Ireland had one record in Galway around 1845 for a Winifred Cain. I also located a Winifred Kean in 1848. Do you have the names of her parents? Many churches in Galway do not have records back to 1850. Cummer parish is in north central Galway and Glinsk is in East Galway near the Roscommon border.
