What library in County Monaghan would be the best place to put a family history book? I desire to place the book where it will be most available and most used by the public interested in this particular surname.
The book is about the descendants of Patrick Keenan, born 1766 in Drumboat, County Monaghan, N. Ireland. He migrated to the USA in 1804. This 237 page hard bound book, written by Francis W. Keenan, Ph.D., and Perry T. Ryan, J. D.,and published by Perry Ryan at Versailles, Kentucky: Kentucky River Press, 1992, contains documented names of over 2,000 of Patrick Keenan's descendants in the USA.
The authors wish to have a copy of this book available in County Monaghan. One reason is that the parents of this Patrick Keenan (1766-1832) have never been identified. We have proof that he was born in Drumboat and also that he was a member of the Roman Catholic Parish of Inishkeen.
This Patrick Keenan remove from the Baltimore, Maryland, area in 1816 and settled in Breckinridge County, Kentucky, where he died in 1832.We desire any credible information about this Patrick Keenan's life in Ireland.
