Well lot's of luck Bernard, but I think your barking up the wrong tree on this site. I haven't learned a thing in the 2 or 3 years on here, you have to be a expert or more then you think you know to argue about it.

Subject: [R-M222] Keilty surname research
Hello, I just joined the list and figured out how to browse/search. I am new to
NA as well. I am really just a lurking sole who doesn't know what to do with
ll of the dna info as of yet. FTDNA tells us customers to read the tutorials. I
ave been researching Keilty family history for just a few years here in the USA
am trying to identify accurate information about the Keilty family from
do know that my paternal great-grandfather "Michael Keilty" was supposed to
ave come from County Tyrone, Ireland and immigrated to the USA abt 1860
ettling in Watertown, County Litchfield, Connecticut, 06795 USA. Michael Keilty
as born 15 AUG 1838 (Tyrone?) Ireland, died 08 MAR 1923 and buried Mt St James
emetery, Watertown, County Litchfield, Connecticut, 06795 USA. Possibly from
he parish of Kildress and diocese of Armagh. Michael was Catholic and his
arents are possibly Patrick Keilty (1810-) and Catherine McShane (1818-) from
ichael Keilty (1838-1923) married Sarah Quinn (1854-1927), but it is not known
hether married in Ireland or the USA. They had nine children and raised their
amily in Watertown, County Litchfield, Connecticut, 06795 USA.
am interested in researching how far back the Keilty surname goes. Some of the
ther surnames of interest from the paperwork genealogy include Keilty, McShane,
uinn, Kelly (from County Roscommon, Ireland), Dubauskas (from Lithuania).
f anyone could kindly point me in the right direction or refer me to someone it
ould be greatly appreciated.
would be pleased to provide any further information.
