Well it goes on and on here in Millstreet, the change in the weather bringing no respite.

  1. I wrote on any information on Cornelius Keane family from Co. Cork or Boherbue where they went to parish Mass and Drimoleague area. They are relatives of my father, Daniel Bernard Kane who was born in Seneca, Wis. Dan Kanes father was Cornelius D. Kane b-April 14, 1862 and his father was Dennis Kane b-01-04, 1840 and he married Mary Kingston. Next is Cornelius Keane who married Mary O’Leary . Does the library have any genealogies of the Keane family up to date in Ireland? I sure wish someone did. It’s hard to keep the family up to date when others don’t write down dates and messages of the families before. If someone can help, please give my address to them. <email>. Thank you.
