If one has an ancestor who emigrated to the U.S. from the West of Ireland at the time of James Hack Tuke's emigration scheme, how might we find out if there was, indeed, a connection? I ask because my great-grandmother was from a village outside Clifden.
Mary

To add to Gerard's comment Rosemarie and Geraldine Mills both gave a talk to launch our Heritage and Historical Society it was a a great evening and a very fitting way to launch our Society

Great discussion this afternoon. Can Gerry comment on the importance of Tuke's work and influence on the Balfour brothers in setting up the Congested Districts Board in 1891 which did quite a lot to help cottiers in the very poor areas of the West of Ireland in the 1890s.
Tim Madigan
01:50:42

Maryanne Dunmire

I am also a Tuke descendant-- my grandmother was on the Nestorian in 1883. Greetings to Rosemary. We met when my friend and I visited in 2018.
