Hallo, I am Lucinda Cook, and looking for cousins who have ancestors in (Boultine) Keel, Co Kerry. 

My 4x great grandparents were Michaelis Hogan ?1796-1876( Horgan/ Hagan/ Hargan/) and Joanna Fitzgerald, 1806?married 1826 on The Dingle Peninsula/ Corca Dhuibne in Keel, Cnucaneachultine, Graun, Co. Kerry, Ireland.  I have their marriage and 9 children records, including my 3xgreat grandfather Andrew Hogan 1829-1908. (Died Adelaide, South Australia, married a Clare woman, Hannah Ellen Collins b.1834, Craigleah, Ennis where my 2xgreat grandmother Mary Hogan was born 1857, and emigrated to Adelaide, South Australia.) The records are 1796 through 1862, mostly all from Keel, Graine/Graun/Grawn/ Gurrane , Co Kerry and a list of my records follows in a bit. 

Firstly though, I'd like to point out there are (at least) three Joanna /Johanna Fitzgeralds, all born on Dingle peninsula early 1800's, and one married with dispensation a Michael Walsh in Kilmelkidar Parish; One married a Thomas Horgan, in Keel, Or Castlemaine and lived Ballymacdonnell/Firies not really on the Dingle peninsula proper and also emigrated to South Australia and Kapunda; one married Mechaslis (Michaelis) Horgan or Hogan in Cnucaneachultine, Keel. Five people in my family dna match (32.8 cm- 19.4 cm) to living  people who have claimed one of the above three Joanna/Johanna Fitzgeralds as their ancestress, but not mine who married Michael Horgan. The dna matches could be coincidence;, or Three Cousin Joanna Fitzgeralds, and two Horgan /Hogan brothers or cousins ; or glib copying of other people's trees leading to confusion.  I would like to sort this out!!!

Michael and Joanna's parents are  brick walls for me because of this confusion of Joanna/Johanna Fitzgeralds, and common name Michael Hogan.

I was born in Australia but live in Dingle 32 years.
