Yes I am Catholic. I have to get the copy of the tree from my brother. My parents came over from Ireland in 1957.Most of my family is still in Ireland and I have very good ties to them. My father was John I. McDonald from Monaghan town. His father was also John. I am not sure of the middle initial. My uncle is still alive and is a wealth of info. He had our tree done and it goes back a good long line.
I will be happy to send your copy as soon as I get it. My brother is digging iot out for me. If there are other questions you have about Monaghan town failies or names, I would be happy to ask my remaining family members.
If I recall correctly, the trail of our Mcdonalds led back to Antrim and it was believed that it had been scotland before that.
I will know better when I get the tree back. I will keep you posted. My personal email is IMCELT1094@aol.com.
