Hi Kevin, u r the 1st McGivern 2 contact me on my search so its good 2 hear from u. I know nothing about my Mary Ann McGiverns family. I have found a wedding 4 Mary Ann McGivoren 2 James Rooney in 1857 but have not confirmed it(99% sure).As far as I know James & Mary Ann had their 1st chid about 1866.
In 1901 James is listed as a farm servant In 1911 he is an agricultural labourer (same as a farm servant but sounds better!!!) They do not have a Thomas living with them.
My Mary Ann seems 2 have been born in a place called Bright, but Raholp features in my searches. I have found a Hugh McGivern from Raholp. Grange also features as a place where their child was registered.
It is possible Thomas & Mary Ann could be related. Maybe u can help with McGivern info as I have so little. Do u have any other names or addresses that could be of help?
