Is anyone researching the family of James Higgins and Bridget Griffin who were living at Uggool, Kilmovee in 1901. James Higgins has died between 1901-1911 and Bridget Higgins has her grandson John Higgins aged 7 born in England living with her in 1911 together with her daughter Catherine (Kate). I think James & Bridget Higgins may be my G Grandparents and John who is living with Bridget in 1911 may be my Uncle who was missing from the 1911 UK Census in Liverpool.

I am seeking information about my GG Grandparents James Dunn and Bridget Dunlancy who were probably from Castlebar. They emigrated to Stockton on Tees, England in 1860s where their children were born. Wondering if there are family members still in Castlebar.
