Fionnuala 😀 great interview with you!

My kids have Power ancestors in Dungarvan and Abbeyside (Waterford). Don't know how far that is from Sporthouse. Of course, Power is the most popular surname in Waterford, right?

These are my kid's paternal ancestors >

Hello Maggie

Yes, there are lots and lots of Powers in Waterford! The name evolved from the Irish version of a French surname: "de Paor" is the Irish version, in French it original was "le povre" or the "poor one"!!! In the middle ages, the French Normans invaded Ireland and many settled in Waterford. So it is almost impossible to find connections with Power families as there are so many, and the first names are also often repeated too!! Dungarvan/Abbeyside is not far if you are talking about American distances, but in Ireland it would be considered quite far for a family connection in the mid 19th century. So, I think it might be difficult to find any connection between your kids and my Powers. I've been quite overwhelmed with responses to my "Member of the Week" appearance - but I will have a look at this when I've time and let you know if I find anything interesting! Thanks again for your message.

Thank you very much for adding death records to Isabella Mills and her sisters. Based on the informants, I have now been able to confirm who their parents were. So that's one mystery solved.
You're very welcome Philip!! I came across them on the "Dublin Unsourced" profiles during some work for the Ireland Project!

I've just added the "born in Ireland" sticker for the three of them :)

How's everything going?

Now that you have had a little time to try WikiTree, there are a few more features you may find useful.

Ideas on what to include in a profile can be found in Styles and Standards, including some tips on writing biographies.

If you need to describe an event, an heirloom or a location relevant to your research, you may like to learn about Free Space Profiles.

Lastly, sometimes you'll run into unresponsive profile managers. We have a process for resolving those unfortunate situations.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask via my profile page.
