My father always knew of James and Mary, of Kinsale, but nothing of any family before them. It is only in more recent years that he has found that he still has links in Kinsale.We now visit Southern Ireland annually. With more access to and knowledge found on the Internet, we know more than ever before, this still amounts to very little.
Early advice pointed us in the direction of www, familysearch.org and although dates confused us, in comparison to what we did have, we were able to connect and confirm :James Greenway ( To ease confusion we refer to him as senior ) and Mary, were the parents of Thomas and James ( To ease confusion we refer to him as junior ).
An Irish gentleman, gave us some data that he had collated, with regard to his own family and this information assisted us with a little Greenway Family knowledge. Some more has been gained from remnants of memories, this aided the compilation of our History as we now know it, although many gaps remain.
