How do I find the right ancestor... My great grandmother Bridget Power daughter of James Power was born on the borders of Kilkenny & Tipperary according to family records. Her father had a farm in Knockroe and her brothers worked in the Slate Quarries. A brother James Power apparently bought one of the slate quarries. There were also marriages between quite a few James Powers and others around that time, so it is difficult to find the right Bridget. I believe there are still relatives in tipperary.
