WOW! You are a wealth of information.
I had the correct name for father, Michael, from another poster here.. The error propagated to my tree the way I suppose happens to other records.....cockpit error! I was working from memory!
He also told me the Bridgetown, Clare was the registration center for an area which included Broadford, Clare. This could account for the 3 days. Took them that long to get over there. Also, the 14th came from hand-written notes in the back of Nana's family bible.....probably entered from her memory!
I might have mentioned that I have commissioned 4 hours of research with the genealogylookup company thru the FHL website, on the passenger list issue. Waiting to hear if they can dig anything up in that time.
Next project will be passenger list for granpa Thomas Whalen. I have much skechier info on that, possibly an 1868 arrival in Boston.
Should keep me busy!
Yes there were a lot of Duggans. Don't know for sure how many of them immigrated. If we had the 1890 census, that would be a jewel!
Early in my Navy career, I was stationed in Guam and Hawaii. That pretty much removed cold weather from my vocabulary!
