I'm looking for any descendant's of Michael Crosbie/y and Anne Bowe of Freshford, Co Kilkenny, Eire. My mother was one of their fourteen children, I know some of them did not marry, but that still leaves me with approx, 20 cousins. I do know at least one of her brothers emigrated to the US. If you are a grandchild of Michael and Anne please get in touch.

Many thanks Terri. :-)

It's extremely unlikely that anyone connected will see your message

Better to be pro-active, and look for them

Start with 'search all trees'...

You'll need birth year info for ANY searches............

Have you done any research yourself?

Hi Reggie,

Thanks for the advice, looks like my grandparents, as it looks like 3 of my uncles were listed in your message. Unfortunately asking questions of my mother is not a possibility as she passed away while I was still at school. As so often happens families lose touch for all sorts of reasons. I know most of the names and have found records of some of the births.

Thanks again for your help and advice. :-)
