Trying to find McEvoy

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Michael Report 16 Jun 2005 14:37

Michael McEvoy, Trying to find my cousins, the children of Francis born 21/06/1916, died 14/03/ 1990 & Joan. The names are, Christine (deseced) Christopher,Simon, Valerie and ?.I am trying to do a family tree just started.

Do you know who Francis parents were. I am looking for info on a Frank McEvoy but your Frank may have been too late for me. His mother would have been 47 having him, I suppose she could have been.

Hello Mary,
Just found your message. You can have a look at my tree. Francis was brother to my Father born in 1916, his Mother my Grandmother was born in1879
Good luck Michael

Other thread of today's date, with some replies:

I think there may have been an earlier thread as well, fairly recently, as the names sound familiar, but I can't find it now.

Michael’s other thread was about people supposedly missing from the 1901 census - on Genealogy Chat
He hasn’t looked at the replies - or, if he has, he hasn’t acknowledged them
As with this thread, no location info given


ArgyllGran Report 14 Jun 2020 09:41

I think there must have been yet another one, as I recognised the names, and that thread doesn't mention names:


ErikaH Report 14 Jun 2020 10:49

5 posts against Michael's name - all accounted for, I think


ArgyllGran Report 14 Jun 2020 11:48

Hmmm - strange.
I wonder if posts on a deleted thread are deducted from the total.

Another little GR mystery ;-)

And yet another little GR mystery...
Of the three threads started by 'Michael' only this one shows forename and surname against 'posted by'. The other two threads just show forename. Does that mean that the system does not modify earlier threads when someone changes their board name?

And one more - why do people post requests and then never bother to look at the replies?

There are so many at the moment

I've sent another PM today (I know Erika sent one a few weeks ago), advising against starting any more threads re this family, and requesting a reply on any one of the existing threads.
