KUYPERS, VANDONZEL posted by Dale Van Donsel on Wednesday, May 19, 1999

I am searching for marriage information for my great-grandparents, Johannes (John) VANDONZEL and Anna Maria (Mary) KUYPERS. They came to the US (separately) in 1853 from Nistelrode, Netherlands, and married in Buffalo in June or later of that year. They married in a Catholic church and lived for a while in Buffalo before coming to Wisconsin. They would have spoken little or no English at that time, so does anybody know which parish would have had a substantial Dutch membership then? There are 10 Catholic parishes in Buffalo for which records from that time are available. I would rather not have to order and search films for all of them. Any information about this would help immensely. For your information, these parishes were: St. Joseph, St. Patrick, St. Louis, St. Boniface, Immaculate Conception, Our Lady of Lourdes (formerly St. Pierre), St. Mary's, St. Francis Xavier, Holy Angels, and St. Michael. Thanks for any help you can offer.

MAHONEY posted by Mark Burr on Friday, May 21, 1999

I am seeking information on my maternal great grandfather, Michael MAHONEY. We have limited information on him. He was born around 1855 in New York. The family story is that his father, from County Cork in Ireland, was a worker on the Welland Canal. Erie County seems to be the closest NY county to the canal, so am taking a wild guess that Michael might have been born there. Unfortunately, we have no other clues as to Michael's birth place. He was Roman Catholic. I would welcome any suggestions on where to look for information about the Irish labourers on the canaland sources for birth records. Thank you Mark Burr
