The project explores aspects of local history and genealogy. It traces the family history of a teacher who was born in Kilteevan, who taught in a local school in the 1860s and who disappeared from the local record until 1911.His story is explored within this time-frame.
Previous research about his ancestry was re-examined and leads were established. These were explored through free online sources and his family tree constructed. A step-by-step account is given of this process. Other aspects of his life were also explored through local publications and various websites. Members of the community where he taught from 1877 onwards engaged with the project and shared their local knowledge. Older Kilteevan parishioners were also consulted. Fellow genealogy enthusiasts assisted with some online searches.
The project will be shared with the parish community through local media platforms.
