Late Thursday night I was doing some casual genealogy surfing at the pilot.familysearch.org web site when I came across a record that caught my eye. It was an Irish Birth and Baptism Record for a Patrick Hanly in Bruree, Limerick, Ireland. The spelling of the last name was different than what I had been accustomed to, but I investigated anyway. It turns out that Patricks parents were listed as Daniel Hanly and Ellen Hayes. WOW! That is an exact match. I don’t know why I hadn’t seen that before. Maybe is was part of a new set of records recently added to the web site. Whatever the case, I was excited. I immediately searched the site for Patrick’s brother, William and sister, Ellen (my great grandmother) but did not have any success. Unfortunately, the Family Search record offered me little information that I did not already know… but it was proof… so I took it. Thinking I might get lucky, I looked for any Hayes records in Bruree. I found quite a few, but none that were related.
