My Ancestors. Looking for any connections.

Wisconsin.

I am looking for any siblings or ancestors of JOHN DORAN or JULIA FEENEY; also a place name

I am a direct descendant of Patrick Boyle and Cecelia O'Donnell of Beaver Island. I have some data on descendants and am trying to research antecedents. I tried your website but can't access the links. An error message from Homestead is received.
