Message (#81):My name is Terry Finn, great, great grandson of William Finn & Norry Cotter Finn. Norry is the daughter of William Sylvester Cotter. After the birth of their son John, it appears they lived in the townland of Kilbarry until they emigrated to the United States in 1852. After John, they had the following children - William, Julia, Dennis (Daniel), Johannah, twins Honora & Catherine, and Jeremiah (born in the USA). The Family settled in the Detroit, Michigan area of the United States. I came along your website while researching the Cotters and saw where your tie-in with William Finn. I would like to exchange family information if you are interested.

Message (#80):My name is Jan Collins, nee Cotter. I live in Australia. My great grandfather was Michael Cotter who was baptized in Carrigaline, Cork, in 1838. I think he had a sister, Catherine, 1834, and two brothers, James, 1835, and Thomas, 1838. He married Elizabeth (Bessy Call) in 1861 and emigrated to Australia in 1865 with two children, Michael and Margaret. We have no information that his brothers and sister came to Australia. I would be very interested in hearing from anyone who is connected with this Cotter family. His parents were David Cotter and Joanna Bagly. I would also really like to hear from anyone connected to a Robert Cotter who was baptized in Cobh in 1850. His parents were Richard and Ann Cotter. Robert came to Australia with Michael and Bessy but we have no more information about him. I will be in Ireland next month and will be in Cork on July 23 and 24. I would love to hear from, or meet any Cotters who may be related. My email address is bcandjmc@gmail.com Regards

Message (#79):Hello, I'm looking for information re an Edward Cotter, Macroom, son of Cornelius Cotter. He was a national school teacher when he married my great, great grand-aunt, Margaret Callaghan/ O'Callaghan in 1877 (m. in Macroom). They moved to the city after they married and had at least one child, Cornelius Cotter. Cornelius was born in 1883 and his father, Edward, is described as a clerk by occupation on Cornelius's birth cert. I haven't been able to trace any further children of Margaret and Edward. They were both deceased by the time of the 1991 census. Cornelius became a painter and was living with the family of his uncle, Daniel Callaghan, at 2 Moore Street, Cork, according to the 1991 census. Cornelius married in 1908. Any information at all re the origins of Edward or any other information re possible children of Margaret Callaghan and Edward Cotter, would be so appreciated.

Message (#76):To anybody reading this message, who might be new to family research relating to Ireland. In the last few days a website irishgenealogy.ie has opened up the indices of the General Register Office to users, which means that if you wish to look up the birth, marriage or death of any person born, married or who died in Ireland, you simply input the person's details, or as much as you know and the system should give you a listing of possibilities for further investigation. Some parts of the system are more detailed than others, but this is a great step forward in researching Irish ancestors. So, you have no excuse now, so, for today, trace at least as far back as Noah! Cheers.

Message (#71):Hello. I thank and congratulate Michael for setting up this lovely list. To the point... I'm named after my great-grandmother Margaret Lauretta Cotter, who later married Edward Francis Kelley of Syracuse, NY (USA). Margaret's father was John Augustine Cotter of Marcellus Falls, NY (USA). Her grandfather was "a Cotter born in Ireland." No one in the family knows anything more, but we've always wondered about it. Here is the Ancestry link. You can click on it to trace my Cotters back, if you wish. http://records.ancestry.com/Margaret_Lauretta_Cotter_records.ashx?pid=183836611

Message (#69):I have found my family in this tree, but my father's name is incorrect, and it lists him as a female. I know this is him, because my mother's name, children's names, his siblings names, and his father's name all match. Is there a way to correct this and or add to it?

Message (#68):Hi there! I am trying to find out any information on a Julia or Mary Cotter(not sure which is correct) who would have been born c1840(?) and married William O'Keeffe. They had 7 children (Mary, Cornelius, Michael, Edward, John, Ellen and Laurence). The family migrated to Australia in about 1880, but I can't find any record of Julia/Mary migrating and wondered if she may have died while still in Ireland. Could she possibly be one of your family? Any info appreciated :)
