I am a descendant of pioneers in the Ottawa Valley & Gatineau, & my maiden name is Conlin.
I recently attended the Ontario Genealogical Society conference & had prepared these cards
for the wall of ancestors. I thought perhaps they might indicate some of the families I
am researching, for posting on your web site. If this is possible, it would be greatly

My name is Karli Marshall and I am a descendant of Jane Ann Murdy's brother (one who moved further west to Ontario).
I was wondering if you have any information about her origins further back than Joseph Murdy and Mariah Farley,
or know specifics related to where they came from, date of crossing etc.
I know that Jane married into the Conlin family but any information at all would be helpful as I am stumped when
it comes to where in Ireland the Murdy's came from, when they immigrated, and who Joseph and Mariah's parents were.
