Re: Dorrian - Co Down- 1891
Hello again Bill:
I replied to the email address listed here, not sure if that is current email address.
I very much appreciate your insights here and would appreciate you asking your Ards area relative re: knowledge of Keenan's and/or McQuoid's living in the area and if she has any knowledge of either of those McShane/Dorrian relatives and their town of origins.
I would love to have the address of the parish priest you mentioned and will drop him a line to ask if he would look to see if any Keenan's (not likely McQuoid's as they were mostly Presbyterian) are in his records. These records are not on the list given to me by the UHF.
It would be great to find out that my relatives lived within a stone's throw of yours as I know you can give me some great places to go and check out when I go to see the old sod myself soon.
Stay in touch.
