    Dear M C Moran
    My name is Valerie Luck (Moran) and I am trying to get information on James/Margaret Moran (my father was Raymond Moran, who was a descendant of Alexander (Sandy) Moran)
    and am planning a trip to Ireland on August 28 of this year and I am hoping to visit the town/city of my ancestors origin.
    My friend (whom is from Ireland) has been helping me try to find information on my roots and has come across your name on and it looks like you have done so much research, with more success than I ever hoped to achieve.
    I was hoping that we could somehow connect via face time, email or old fashion telephone call.

    Hi Valerie,

    Thanks very much for your comment. Were your grandparents John Moran and Mary Katherine Dunn?

    Re: the town/townland of origin for James Moran and Margaret Jamieson: I have been searching for their county and townland of origin for about six years! And I’m sorry to say that I still cannot tell you where they came from. However, I recently found a possibly promising record in Mountmellick, Co. Laois, and am starting to look at that area more seriously. It may prove a false lead, though (it certainly wouldn’t be the first time…). Would love to talk to you before you go to Ireland. Please email me at mcmoran at gmail dot com.
