Dear mike thank you for sharing the information about your greatgreatgrandfarther. I am still not to sure or that i am 100% that both our feenys could be related. i have just this morning reicived the griffiths tax evalution which bernard appered on.I will be replying for my gretgretgrandafarthers death certificate and but am not to sure about your greatgreatgrandfarther. there is one suggestion that you could try if you went tohe bath library in bath they have all the births deaths and marriges of england from 1847. So if your greatgreatgrandafarther died in england you could at least apply for the death ceritificate which would tell you something. Also my greatgreatgrandafarther had died in 1871 because it said this on my greatgrandfarthers wedding certificate. The reason why i am sure that our relatives came form galway if they ARE related is. I have appiled to the four diffenrent septs where the feenys came from. I tried county mayo libary. I also paid for a aserch at county sligo geneology centre. and they had found one john feeny but they thought that where then parish was and the roads being very poor that they got the immprestion that this would have been to far to lisnanne. So galway seems to be the best bet i have also got a book on the surnames of ireland from the libary. This man who printed this book is a leading geneologist and also has a degree. AND ON THE MAP. it said that the feenys were in galway in the 1600s. But only after the griffiths tax evalution did i find out that my greatgrandfarther was born at lisnaane so it was my greatgreatgrandfarther that came form galway. ALSO I A have SEEN ON THe INTERNET that feeny is not a county roscommon name. There are quite a few things that you could do for me in ireland but i think that it s a lot to ask for and i feel it s a bit unfair when you are on holiday. BUT WHAT I AM GOING to do next is apply for a few death certificates and birth certifcate. of the feeneys and murrays which is another relative of mine. which is at the health board services roscommon the main place for the birth deaths marraiges of roscommon. Also you could try the family history society of county roscommon they could also help and it would not be that expensive . but the family history genegilcal society in strokes town is. I will try and find the both address for you and then you can decide which one you chosse.
