Thanks for peoples help it's really helpful when you're stuck to have people giving advice. I was wondering if anyone might be able to tell me how to go about finding the parents of George McKinley sr b.1797? How would one go about finding that out? Was wondering if there was any connection to the McKinley of coleraine, one of whom a Francis McKinley was hanged for rebellion in 1798? Many thanks to all
