Hi Barbara:

Thank you. Oddly my search results for Jeremiah Donoghue brought up a lot
of unhelpful results when I listed his specific place of birth. But when I
changed his birthplace to just "Cork, Ireland" the family tree came up at
the top of the screen.

I will take your advice.

Many thanks!

Kevin
