Looking for relatives....My greatx3 grandfather, Maurice Hyland married Mary Blaney in 1837 in Rochfortbridge. Currently, looking for their relatives. Was told many years ago that Maurice was born cira 1814-1816 on Christmas Day in Athlone, but have not been able to confirm that.

Recently, found James Hyland listed in the 1835 Griffiths Valuation of Westmeath; in townland of Farthingstown, Parish of Castlelost. I would like to see if they link up. If anyone has any information or is interested in sharing, I would love to hear from you. 

If anyone has HYLAND or BLANEY family in this area we could be related.

Thank you- Karen

Also include information concerning which sources you may have already used so others may further your search.

    Please be patient - as our programme has only begun to rollout across the island of Ireland and volunteers in some areas may not yet be organized.
