Almost by accident I found someone who was interested in the Donegal Purviances (previously a family I had almost ignored). A privately published pamphlet printed over 100 years ago in 1897 records some (but not a lot of) information about John and Sarah Purviance and 2 or 3 others. It would take too long to explain here. You can see what info there is in my web site "http://h-f-h.org" and there are at least 3 ways to the info from the Home Page: (1) use QUICKSTART and select Purviance, (2) use GALLERY + MAPS and select 1610 Donegal, (3) use FAMILYHISTORY and then use the Index (yellow icons top left, 4th and 5th from left) and select Purviance. I hope this is of some interest.
