Subject: Second try on Bryan McDonald
Date: Thu, 9 Jul 1998 16:54:46 -0500
Sorry, I forgot to include the file information, let's try that again:
I just joined this fine group, I'm a descendant of Bryan McDonald (sometimes
spelled McDonnell) of County Wicklow, Ireland, who came to the USA to New
Castle Delaware. Below is some information on him that I copied from my
McDonald webpage. I am trying to confirm his ancestry, which I have seen in
numerous books and is traced back to the 5th Century AD in some branches.
The main thing I'm looking for is any records from Ireland that show his
parents and grandparents. I firmly believe the following information is
correct, some comes from the Royal Gedcom site. If you have information on
this line, please e-mail me.
