My family came from the Connemara area of County Galway. As of the 1901 and 1911 Ireland census records, my g-g-grandparents lived in Lettershanbally, the Ballynakill parish. They were Philip and Anne Walsh Faherty. They lived there with their sons Thomas and Martin, daughter-in-law (first Bridget Kerrigan, then Mary ?), and grandchildren. Most of their children had already immigrated to the U.S. by 1901: Patrick, Philip, Peter, and Stephen, as well as Bridget, Sarah, and Mary. Anything sound familiar?

I noticed that Faherty and Walsh were two of the surnames attached to this post, although they were not explicitly mentioned. My g-g-grandparents were Philip and Anna Walsh Faherty. Sound familiar?

The great majority of Fahertys came from Galway. Mine came from the Connemara region, parish Ballynakill. You need to find the immigration record for your Joseph Faherty. Very often the record will be more specific than Galway. For example, some of the Faherty immigration records for my ancestors indicated "Leenane".

Because Faherty isn't that common a name, my family was located fairly easily in the !901 and 1911 Ireland Census records. My g-g-grandparents Philip and Anne Walsh Faherty had remained in Ireland with their son Thomas and (until about 1912) their son Martin, while the rest of their children had all gone to America before the 1901 census. Do you know the names of any of Joseph's siblings? You can use their immigration records as well. Do you have any clues to the names of Joseph's parents? You can look for them in Ireland Census records. The 1911 Census has been on-line for almost 3 months.

There is a West Galway Family History website that I've used recently to find vital records in the Connemara region. Much of my success in assembling the names of my Faherty relatives here in America came from combining USA census records with newspaper articles, both available on Ancestry. However, I was lucky in that the Trenton/Hopewell area of NJ area has good newspaper availability on Ancestry. Boston, not so much. However, if you live near Boston, I would recommend researching the historical newspapers.

You're doing the right thing, posting on Faherty sites. You can also try Galway. In addition, if you have a public tree on Ancestry, you'll probably make connections. Good Luck.
