One of the things I love about TNG (The Next Generation of Genealogy Sitebuilding) is its powerful search capacity. Once you’ve entered some data into your TNG-based genealogy database, you can quickly and easily perform all kinds of searches based on any number of criteria. Cause of death contains “tuberculosis,” for example, gives me this list (which almost certainly underrepresents the actual number of tuberculosis victims in my database, since I either have not discovered or have not entered the cause of death for many, many individuals). Birth place “Arnprior,” to give another example, produces this list(96 individuals, many of them Cunninghams, Finnertys and Galligans, and with 16 surnames represented overall).
On 29 September 1846, William Coil/Coyle, son of Thomas Coil and Ann Wellworth “du comte de Tipperary” (of the county of Tipperary), married Ann Lahy, daughter of John Lahy and Ann Fitzpatrick, also of Tipperary (“du même comte”/of the same county). Witnesses to the marriage were John Doherty (Dogherty/O’Dogherty) and James [Brogan? Bingham?]. Marriage record found in the parish register for Notre Dame Basilica, Ottawa:

Another Killeen couple with surprisingly few marriages amongst their offspring:
Via Deborah Large Fox, a new genealogy search engine called Mocavo. As Deborah Large Fox points out, since Mocavo scours only genealogy-related sites, and therefore filters out genealogically irrelevant results, it has the potential to be quite useful to family history researchers, though the usual cautions apply (in general, the genealogical information that you find on the internet will range in quality from impressively accurate and well-sourced to fundamentally conjectural and probably inaccurate, if impressively fanciful; and the more you already know about an individual or a family, the better able you will be to parse the distinctions between “true,” “false,” “possibly true,” “almost certainly false,” and etc., more finely. So: the more you already know, the more you can subsequently discover? Well, yeah, basically, but of course this logic is by no means confined to genealogy…).
Hanora (sometimes Anna or Hanna/Hannah) Killeen was one of the eldest (perhaps the second eldest) daughters of Denis Killeen and Mary Ahearn. She was born in March township in the early 1820s, possibly (as per the 1901 Canadian census return) on 10 May 1821.
My paternal grandmother, Mary (“Mae”) Catherine Lahey, daughter of John James Lahey and Bridget Loreto Killeen, and wife of Allan Jerome Moran:
