I note that McBurney is the only spelling you give for your search. My grandfather was George McBirney who was married to Sarah Jane McQuade who both emigrated from Brown Hall, near Ballintra,Donegal, Ireland between 1910-15. They went to Omemee, Ontario where the McQuades had some relatives. George McBirney was born somewhere other than Donegal and hi had a dispute with his siblings after his mother's death. He severed all relations with his family. I have been trying to find out any info re where I can start to look for info about his McBirney family or where he came from in Ireland. Do you know where the name predominantly comes from in Ireland-what county? The family moved to Toronto from Omemee. They had 8 chn. including my mother, Annabelle Lillian McBirney Brennan. Most of thier family is buried in the St. John's Norway cemetery in Toronto. If you can help with anything on the McBirney's in Ireland, I would appreciate it. I believe there are several ways of spelling the same name. Tks. Noella Fisher
