Mr. McElroy:Much of your furture McKee research may involve Irish records (or perhaps Mormon -LDS records).You have a fairly location in Ireland for your McKee. Keep in mind that your McKee from County Monaghan was then in Ulster - provincial records for that period may be in Belfast, not Dublin. This also means that records for your McKee may exist in Belfast rather than have suffered destruction in Dublin in 1922. Thought I'd mention that.Three more areas I like to touch.First,without regard to the religion of the individual, the Mormon Church has made microfilms of many parish and county records.For instance Poor Law Union records, local business (published) directories or baptismal records may be on microfilm.These are freely accessible and may be viewed through Mormon Church libraries, if there is one near you. You don't have to be a Mormon to use the microfilm facilities. Second, in my research (on another line) I found that immigrants of that generation of W.J.D. did not always make a straight line immigration to USA.Often they went to England and Scotland in search of job opportunity first.Last, I have had some good luck in tracking down ancestors of such immigrants (and documenting them well) through the Ulster Historical Foundation (UHF) in Belfast.UHF has a web-site. Their (UHF) services are not free, but they do a good job.Good luck.
