Hanleys or Hanlys in Kiltrustan or Strokestown

Hello!

I am the great granddaugther of Edward T (Thomas?) Hanley, Sr.

Edward's dob 1 Dec 1864, Strokestown, Roscommon, Ireland

              dod 7 Oct 1930, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA

Parents: Peter Hanly and Mary Kearns

Siblings: William M Hanley (confirmed) also emmigrated to the U.S. and settled in Indianapolis, Indiana

              James (possible) - Strokestown area birth and baptismal records indicate this

              Likely other siblings not yet discovered

I am seeking any insights into the Hanley and Kearns families, including not only information from Strokestown, but also potentially the Kiltrustan and Lissonufy Parishes.

Thanks!

Bridget

    Welcome to Ireland Reaching Out!

    I checked on Roots Ireland and found the records for James and William. There was also a Catherine but her mother was shown as Bridget and not Mary so maybe the record is not for your family. The 1855 Griffiths Valuation head of household listing for Kiltrustan civil parish shows two Peter Hanly records. Not sure if either record is for your ancestor.

  • Thank you again, Roger, for your assistance.

    This sound a novice question, but how does one make the leap from a Giffiths' listing to determining actual lineage? Is there a method? That is, other than finding living relatives in Ireland that might be able to confirm information?

  • Hi Bridget!

    Not a novice question. You can't make a connection without other info. Griffiths allows you to identify townland/parish possibilities. There are Griffiths Revisions books that show how the properties changed hands in the years after the actual survey. Right now these books are only available in Dublin or through micorfilm through the Mormon Church (which is a tedious process). The good news is that we expect the books to be digitized and available online sometime this year. (They are available online right now for the six counties in Northern Ireland).
