Hi Snowhite,
I've just discovered the 1901 & 1911 censuses. As far as I can make out, James & Thomas were brothers of my grandfather, Patrick Kelly. I'm the daughter of Patrick's son, Laurence (1924-2011) from Wolfe Tone Avenue. I was able to find the birth records of their other brothers Henry (1889), Peter(1892), John (Jack)(1894) & William(1897) easily enough and their only sister, Julia(1885) but haven't found either James's or indeed my grandfather, Patrick's birth records yet.

It was great to find this information, many thanks,
Anne-Marie Farrell (nee Kelly)

Hi Ann-Marie, Glad that was some help to you, I was in Belgium earlier this year and went looking for your Gr Uncle Thomas Kelly's grave to leave a little Irish Flag on it, I brought loads with me and any Irish guys I came across I left a Flag for them in respect of their sacrifice. :-( Unfortunately I went to the wrong cemetery though and only found out later the one I was looking for was only around the corner, but I will be going back again and will make it a point to go and leave a Flag.


I found these for you and hope they are the right people,..................... (just click on image when the link opens ;-) )

This is the La Ferte-Sous-Jouarre Memorial, Seine-et-Marne, France, where James Kelly is commemorated on. (Lest we forget)

Hi Denis,

No, it was Tom, my dad's brother who worked in Quinnsworth but they were very alike. Tom is the only one of the family left, he lives in Ballybrack. My dad was a traffic warden in Dun Laoghaire in the eighties, you might remember him!!! He passed away on Christmas day 2011 at the age of 87 so he had a good innings. I didn't know that James was known as Josh. He was exactly 14 years younger than dad but unfortunately died in his thirties.

I'm having great fun here looking up censuses and death/birth records... it's addictive!!

Thanks for the welcome,
Anne-Marie

Hi Snowhite,

Many thanks for those links. It was the right Patrick (which was the one I was particularly interested in, as he was my grandfather) but not the right James (mother's maiden name was different) but that only leaves one to find, I've found the birth records of the other seven.

That was a lovely idea to leave little Irish flags on the graves and a shame that you didn't get to the other cemetery... next time for sure!

Lovely photo, by the way

Anne-Marie

Now, why couldn't I find that last night? Probably because it was about 4am!!

Welcome to the site Anne Marie. You have done amazing work on finding all your family. I am bogglied eyed looking at those Irish genealogy records. They have allowed me fill in so many blanks in my trees.

My great grandparents seemed to have moved around every address in D/L. Every baby was born in a different address adn...there were a lot of babies...sad to think that in two generations our family name has almost died out.

Continued good luck in your searches wuu wuu

Do you have any good Dún Laoghaire stories to get us all thinking and remembering??
I am not afraid of tomorrow, for I have seen yesterday and I love today.

Glad to hear Tom is still with us sorry to hear about your Dad. It's hard to believe that Joss ( I called him Josh earlier) died so young. He was a little older than me but I remember how tall and well built he was,he looked indestructible,you just never know do you. Keep posting.

This is the only surviving photograph of my grandfather, Patrick Kelly. I think he is the third from the right. Great to have and it will be taking pride of place on my photo wall very shortly!
