Hi Maria, Thank your for your reply to my original message.Can you fill in a few blanks?Such as who your emigrant ancestors were and when they arrived in Belleville.I have quite a few names in my very incomplete tree:for example, I now know that my great grandfather, John Kerby (one of the three brothers from Ireland) married Mary O'Connor on April 25, 1865 in St Anicet Church near Huntingdon.My grandfather James Edward was their fourth child and was born in 1876.John's father was a man called James and his mother was Ann Griffin. Mary's parents were Denis and Joanna Linch (or Lynch).I also have a record of a Ellen or Eulalie or 'Naly" Kerby who married Joseph Alexis Chretien on Feb 7 1826 at St. Anicet Church, but I don't know if she is a family member or not.
Anyway, any names you can pass on - and especially where they may have come from here in Ireland would be of great help.
PS - Were you living abroad for a while? I remember having a brief e-mail correspondence with a brother of yours (?) after being invited by e-mail to a Kerby reunion somewhere in Ontario.It was a long time ago.
