Hi there, I'm hoping you can help with my research for the following:
>> My maternal Grandfather John Patrick WHELAN - DOB: October 1891/DOD: April1968 @ Colliers, NL...Married my Grandmother Helen (aka Nellie/Maryellen) FITZGERALD on April 29th, 1924 at Cape Breton, NS. Grandmother Helen (FITZGERALD) - DOB: October 14th, 1904 @ New Aberdeen, NS/DOD: ????;
>> My GGrandfather Lawrence FITZGERALD of Small Point, Nfld; DOB: 1882/DOD: May 1905 [mining accident at Dominion 2]...Married *GrGrandmother Ann (MURRIN/MORAN/MURRANT, b. abt. 1882-1884 of Pouch Cove, Nfld)..*I do not have other details such as DOB/DOD, from where/when, etc..;
Question(s): My GreatGrandmother, Ann(e) MURRIN/MORAN/MURRANT - I have no birth/baptism details..no parents..no siblings.
Several months ago I had my DNA tested and have since registered with GEDMatch.com and other dna/gedmatch groups. I am still trying to figure out how I connect as cousins with the matches I have made. And, I have yet to make any specific connection to my MURRIN/MORAN/MURRANT resesarch..although, I strongly believe the spelling should be as MURRIN as this is historically the known spelling for the families of that area.
Any help is welcome.. regards, Nora
