Kildalkey & Ballivor, Co. Meath, Ireland

My great-grandmother, Delia (Bridget) Keegan was born in Ballivor in 1862. Her parents were Ellen Douglas (aka Duglas) and Patrick Keegan. My Douglas & Jones ancestors were married in Kildalkey in 1822. I also have Carney and Dixon connections in these Co. Meath parishes.

The search for these ancestral connections lead to my creation of databases covering these areas. It would please me to have others benefit from my transcription of these records.

I'm sorry that time constraints prevent me from answering questions related to the databases. However, you can order film number 926163 from the Family History Library to view the microfilmed copy of the original parish register.

Of course, if you have connections to my ancestors, please contact me at
