  • My great grandmother was Margaret Scannell, lived in County Kerry and died in early 1900s.
    Would be interested to know what information you have on the Scannell family.

  • Dear MSM & Mcullough:

    Many thanks for your post to Ireland Reaching Out. As Clare Doyle previously stated, if you would create a profile of the family in our XO Chronicles (tab at the top of the Page) that would be really helpful to anyone else who is also searching this family.  There may be information out there that will be shared with you via your Chronicle post.

    Click on the XO Chronicles tab, and Click on People to create a profile.

    Kind regards,

     

    Jane.

  • Hello,

    I have created a post and a person profile: Michael Scannell 1820. This website is not particularly user freiendly if you only use it on occasion. I am not sure how to edit the Michael Scannell profile I did add.

    In any case, I would like to help with information on Margaret Scannell. However, I don't know enough from the question to be able to come up with any answer. I have tracked the Scannells that are from Rathcormack. Rathcormack is a small town in Eastern Cork. I have all of the baptism records from the Cloyne Diocese for people baptised, the parents of, and the sponsors for those people. 

    There is also another contingent of Scannells from Western Cork in and around Ballyvourney. The East and West Cork Scannells are not related that I am aware of. There are also quite a few Scannells that ended up in the City of Cork. The seem to have moved sometime after the 1840s. I have been able to connect very few of them to the Rathcormack Scannells from the records available on line.

    Margaret, Mary, and Catherine are common given names in the Rathcormack area. I had all of the Rathcormack Scannells in a single file on Ancestry.com but people started grafting their families to ones that I knew for a fact that there were no connections to. I ended up removing the file rather than have it getting too corrupted.

    Are there any other detail that can be provided for Margaret Scannell? The Parish baptism records available on line are good but tedious to search throguh. You almost need to know what you are looking for before you can find it. The civil records are better for the early 1900s, maybe the early Ireland census records.

    I wish I could help more. Good luck.

    Best regards, Don McCullough

  • I agree , the website is not terribly user friendly.  I just entered info on my great-grandmother, Margaret Scannell's husband, Jeremiah, and after having trouble getting info entered and hitting "save this person", it seems to have disappeared!  Was going to enter the scant info I have for Margaret Scannell - but since it apparently did not save Jeremiah - haven't done so.
