Looking for any descendants of my Dad's family all named Kelly all born in Liverpool.
I have made contact with his sister's and 1 of his brothers descendants and the rest I know nothing about in most of the cases apart from their name and year of birth
.Their details are Thomas 1882 /Joseph 1894 /John 1887/ James 1888/ William 1890/
Phillip 1893/ . The ones I have made contact with are Mary Ellen 1881 and Edward 1891 and obviously my Dad 1895. I must have lots of relatives but a family row meant we were isolated from the family ( so the family saga goes??)

Have you looked to see if any of them are on people's trees on here, and then tried to contact the tree owners?

Have you found possible marriages and children for them, and also possible deaths?

With a surname as 'Kelly' from Liverpool there will probably be lots of similar births and marriages so using genes trees seems like an obvious first route.

I have not tried as I have no idea of any names or year of birth for the descendants of the brothers listed. I was hoping that if someone had been researching the family they would recognise the list of names .I will try your advice now and see where it leads m. .Thank you so much for coming back so quickly
