Queens Co in famine
Posted by: Cynthia Simmons (ID *****2401) Date: February 06, 2003 at 17:27:02

My gg-grandmother, Catherine Moore Swain, arrived in US around late 1860s/early 1870s...according to the census for Utica, NY, 1880. I have been to the Offaly Family History Center and found their church records, but am curious as to why...after the famine...did they emigrate. I'd like to know how County Laois (Queens County) was affected by the famine and would appreciate any references relating to same. Thank you.
