Patrick, thank you very much for this info., it does help. I checked online for the baptismal records for Killard and Doonbeg Parish and sadly, they only go back to 1855. My family had already left Ireland by then. It is interesting, though, that there are still many Honans in and around Doonbeg, they might be my distant cousins. At least now I know that nobody else on the face of this planet could have possibly done more than you and I did to locate my ancestors in County Clare. Thanks again. -Mark D'Elia from Niagara Falls, NY.
