Hello All

I was told that we have family  down under but all I have is information on my  gggrandfather  

Daniel married Catherine McCafery and lived on Dernish Island county Fermanaugh  Ireland I was told that one of his brothers (Jack) moved to Austraila but I can't confirm this . So if anyone can help me this would be great   Tanks  Bob Kearns

Bob, You would need to list Jacks parents names and his approx date of birth

Australia is a very big country and every states records are kept separate - we can only check to certain dates for privacy reasons which varies from state to state


Was Jack KEARNS his birth name or his nickname?

Bob,  Going on an estimated birth date of c. 1800/1810 there are quite a few possibles listed in BDM indexes

in the different states of Australia - so unfortunately without having both his parents names I would only be guessing if any of them are the Jack KEARNS you are looking for

KEARNS can also be spelt several different ways and the spelling can change over the years

Sorry I don't think I am going to be able to help with this one without parents names

Thank you for your time  I think but again not sure   Thomas and Mary might be his parents
