I am trying to track down my McGinity relatives from WNY (originally from Ireland). A poster here related to his "upstate" NY McGinitys, from Peru, NY , which appears to be way up north, near the Vermont border. Mine are upstate but from the other end, southwestern NY, reputedly from Jamestown, NY, in Chautauqua county. My paternal great grandmother was Catherine Connors. She had a sister Bridget Connors who reputedly married M. McGinity. There were 5 children of the marriage: John, Alice, Margaret, Genevieve and Catherine. The family supposedly moved to Hollywood, CA, with some of the children becoming involved in the motion picture industry. The Connors were from the Ellicottville area, and in between, is Randolph. If you pull up the St. Patrick's (Roman Catholic) Cemetery from Randolph, NY records there are some 20 McGinnitys buried there, but not sure any are related to mine.Also there are some 15 people buried there with the name McGinn. I am trying to trace this McGinity family branch, if indeed they moved west. There are none left in Jamestown, NY. Any thoughts ?
