Am now looking at SP for Catherie's birth. Can find her brothers Patrick & Thomas but not Catherine.

According to Patrick's cert, his father Thomas was a roadsurfaceman.

Hi Everyone, I have just joined genesreunited and I am from Australia. My greatgrandfather was Miles McKenna and my grandmother - his daughter Alice is my grandmother who came out from Scotland. Cheers Kaz :-)
