Hello, you might not read this, but my great-great-grandparents were John Francis Gilgan & Kathleen Curran. My great-grandfather was John Gerard Gilgan. The really weird part is that my grandmother, (John's daughter), actually shares your name, Maureen Gilgan. When I saw your name, I had a little heart attack. My grandmother died before I was born, so your name kind of scared me. She gave birth to my mother, Regina, & to my aunt Theresa & my uncle Jerome.
We barely new anything about our Gilgan family, until my Aunt found my great-granddad's birth certificate. Because of a lot of family drama, we were told that my great-grandfather came to America in 1942, met my great-grandmother Rita, had my grandma, then died in WWII. I later found out that was a lie. My mother was also lied to about her own father, so it didn't surprise us. I found out he died 3 days before my 9th birthday in New York.
I made contact with someone in New Zealand who I am apparently related to through Kathleen Curran. He told me that she was the daughter of Peter Curran & Rose Dolan. You said that she was the daughter of different people, & now I am confused. Since Curran is a common name, I don't really know which couple is actually her parents. You might know more than me, so the person in New Zealand might not even be related to me.
It would be great if you could contact me, Thanks!
