This request came in recently, have a read below as you might know someone or something that could help join the dots x
I hope you won’t mind me contacting you but I am trying to trace someone and wondered if you could help?
His name is John Scahill and married Deirdre Connolly in the local church on 11th February 1975. Sadly, Deirdre died young but I believe they had a daughter together. I’m actually trying to trace Deirdre’s older sister, Dolores, who went to live in America in the 1960’s approx. She was very kind to me when I was a child and now that I am getting on a bit !! I would like to find her and say thank you.
The only “lead” I have is John Scahill and he may have had siblings? Maybe you would know of any family links through the village, or the whereabouts of his daughter – who may be able to lead to me Dolores ?
Thanks for taking the time to read this and help if you can.
If you can help please leave a comment below.
