I, too, am interested in that book. I have visited Ballinakill a couple of times; spoken with Christy O'Shea and Father Conlon. My great-grandmother, Catherine Swain, was born in 1854; her parents were John Swain and Catherine Moore. She was in the 1870 census in Utica, Oneida County, NY, along with her mother and two sisters. The RC church there in Ballinakill had records dating from the late 1700's...what a find! Let me know if you find the book...and thank you...
