Hi. I have been trying to track down a part of the Sweeney family in Wales. The family is composed of father John Sweeney (born about 1840 in Ireland) and mother Catherine (Reed) Sweeney (also born about 1840 in Ireland). I have birth records for three of their children:
Cornelius Sweeney, born 01 Mar 1861 in Waungoch, Beaufort, Wales
John Sweeney, born 18 May 1863 in River Row, Beaufort, Wales
Joanna Sweeney, born 12 Sep 1865 in Blaenavon, Llanover Upper, Wales
I have not been able to find them in the 1861 census but I am confident this family was in Wales at that time. Do you have any ideas? I am getting confused with all the county changes also.
