My name is Gerald Sweeney.
-----born in 1930 in Dauphin,Manitoba

My Father's name was Stephen
-----born in 1903 in Norwood, Manitoba, Canada
(he had 1 brother and 5 sisters)

My Grandfather's name was Michael
----born in 1870 in Rathmullen, Donegal, Ireland
-----died in 1940 in Norwood, Manitoba.

My Grandmother's maiden name was Catherine Boyle
----born in 1876 in Rathmullen, Donegal, Ireland
----died in 1961 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Grandparents Michael & Catherine probably married in Rathullen before emigrating to Canada in 1901

Expect to visit Ireland in 2004 and besides enjoying the sights of the country--I would like to visit the area and possibly the houses my Grandfather and Grandmother lived in and trace my ancestry starting with my grandparents families and at least their immediate forebears.

Please contact me if you have any information to start my search.
