Re your message of 1 May 2005, it appears that my O'Meara family is not connected to yours.
My g grandfather Jeremiah O'Meara b abt.1828 (Mara/ MEARA) of Dromduhigmore (various spellings) Kilarney married Mary Foley b abt. 1831 in Killelee Kilarney. They had the following children, Cornelius, born abt.1858, who emigrated to Australia and married Mary O'Sullivan (from County Kerry) on 20 April 1892, Jeremiah born1860, Margaret born 1864, Michael born 1867, Timothy, born 11 May 1873 and Daniel born 1869. All children were born in Dromduhigmore Kilarney, County Kerry, Ireland. As far as I know, Cornelius was the only one of the above who emigrated to Australia.
I am not aware of any family history book. Please let me know if you discover one.
