Hello from Boston

Hello from Boston ! I am attempting to trace my family back to Millstreet in the early 1800′s. Would you by any chance know of someone local that undertakes geaneology research for hire ?

I suspect my great great grandfather Denis Buckley and his wife Ellen Buckley nee Welch /Walsh came from Millstreet. Dennis and Ellen had at least one son Richard D. Buckley born around Nov. 1845. He emigrated to America in 1861 and settled in Bosto. I believe Ellen’s fater was Edmond Walsh from Millstreet born around 1822.

I would apreciate any help or guidance you may be able to provide as I will be in Kenmare in early Oct. and would love to visit Millstreet if I can establish a family connection.

All the best, Jack Buckley ( <email> )
