I have traced my family history back to Thomas Conboy (1863-1931 ) and his spouse XXXXX XXXXX (1865- 1948) on my paternal side from Strokestown, Co Roscommon and Laurence Murphy (1874 circa- 1936 ) and Mary Agnes Heveran dob unknown died 25.03.1971 at Castlemagarret, Co Mayo on my maternal side. from Turloughmore or Loughreaa Co Galway I am having great difficulty in tracing any of their antecedents except for the names of John Conboy ( 1816-1878) and Brigid Lyons ( No Dates) from Kilglass, Strokestown, Co Roscommon. My question therefore is how best to take this research back further, Can you help and what the possible cost might be. Many thanks for your assistance. Thomas XXXXXXcatherine-mod41084.9580037847
I have tried family connections, birth ad death certificates, death notices ad cemetery memorials as well as some information from newspaper notices and personal diaries.
Hi, Welcome and thanks for your question.

Sorry, My resources do not allow further expenditure.Thank you
Okay, my answer and depth of research will be based on your current budgeted amount of $50 then.
So is the next step to go past John Conboy ( 1816-1878) or Brigid Lyons ( No Dates) from Kilglass, Strokestown, Co Roscommon or are you looking for the next step beyond for the maternal side?
Thank you for your response. an you tell me why you are quoting me in USA dollars? I understood that I was dealing with an Irishman in Ireland. Is this a computer generated activity or a genuine genealogical research. Sorry if I sound a bit pernickety but I am very concerned about the possible cost of this exercise balanced against the depth of information discovered. Can you tell me whether the info on John Conboy is available and what the cost of this aspect would be. Regards XXXXX XXXXXcatherine-mod41084.9580573264
Hi, Sorry if someone gave you the idea we were Irishmen? Nothing in our marketing that I know of would reference that. Why did that come to mind for you?
Thank you for your prompt and detailed response to my last query. I don't know your name and it would be useful to know it. If I ask you to follow up a particular line of exploration e.g. Thomas Conboy what will that cost me and does that cover the advertised cost of £34?. Also can you give me an estimate cost for following up all the leads I gave you.I shall look forward to hearing from you.Kind regardsThomas
Thanks for your reply.
I can only work with the budget given and see if it anwsers the question when I am done. There is no real way of knowing what the outcome will be or what the total cost might be. The more you budget the greater the chances of success for all aspects. I will do my best with what you have given.
If you give me a particular person you want researched, I will look for information on him or her that you don't already have. So who would you like me to research first and what pieces of information are you missing?
All the best,
