I am researching my grandfather's family - James N Guinan. His father was Patrick. James was born in Grange (a farm community) in Offaly in 1894. He had 7 brothers (Frank, Tom,Kieran, Joe, William ...) I am forgetting all of the names. One became a priest. During the 1911 census James was living in Dublin with a cousin (also Guinan) and working as a grocery clerk. He eventually moved to Perth Amboy, NJ in the late 1920s.
If any of this sounds familiar to you, please write.
