Extract from the BRENDAN family Public Members Tree on Ancestry website
Bridget Dunphy b 1890 married Michael Mcloughlin b 1890 Louth Ireland
Michael and Bridget both died in Salford Lancs

Bridget's parents were Matthew Dunphy b 3 Dec 1841 Waterford Ireland and Mary Power
Matthew's parents were James Dunphy b Waterford Ireland and Mary Phelan also b Waterford Ireland

Michael's parents were Patrick McLoughlin b 1855 Louth Ireland and Catherine O'Neil b 1859 also Louth

There are 7 children to Michael and Bridget all born in Salford, some or all of which may be still alive and if you would like the details of them I'll list them by way of PM

Hello Wendy,

You have added to a thread from earlier this year.

What would be best for you to do is to start a thread of your own - take a look at the Help Clinic (top left corner) for further advice.

You can also try putting the names you are researching into the Search Trees box above to see if anyone else on this site has them in their tree. If you find a connection, you can contact the tree owner. Regards. Cx

This is a thread from last year. 'Unknown' - you need to start a thread of your own. Just click on 'add topic' on the Ancestors board. You will need to be a bit more specific though.

Kathleen, there is no point adding to this unrelated thread. Just start your own by going back to the 'find ancestors' board and clicking on 'start new topic'.
A tip - explain what you mean by 'searching for' when you start your thread.
