Hi, Have you contacted the West Galway Heritage Society in Galway City? You can get their address on the internet. If you have good info (dates and places of birth, marriage, etc.) they will do search for you at a modest fee. I was there in 1999 and paid them a visit and they were MOST helpful, enthusiastic and informative. I even had the last name as FLAHERTY and came out knowing that hubby's family had originally been FAHERTY, the exact areas of Galway they came from, and other pertinent info.
