Hello Everybody, My name is Sylvia & I've just joined your group,
had a wonder around the webpage which I've found most interesting..
Like to let you know abt our Kelly lot who were born in Ireland and
moved to Dundee.. This is the family on the 1841 & 1851
Michael Kelly is already desceased. I'm happy to send on my family
tree report to anyone intersted. Would anyone know the name of the
place where the family worked as Linen Loom Weavers & Linen Power?
Weavers in Hilltown.
1841 Census at Hilltown Dundee. Forfar Scotland
Record in Book 83 Page 4.
Bridget McLean Age 30 Born Ireland.(Don't know how she fits in
Rachel Kelly Age 50 Linen Loom Weaver Born Ireland.
(Rachel is most likely Michael's sister-in-law rather than sister?)
Jean (Jane) Kelly Age 40 Linen Loom Weaver Born Ireland.
Easter (Esther) Kelly Age 15 Linen Loom Weaver Born Ireland.
Miles Kelly Age 14 Linen Power Weaver Born Ireland.
Patrick Kelly Age 13 Linen Power Weaver Born Ireland.

I'm also interested in the dates of Registered Photographers to try
and date my photo's for Dundee, I couldn't see anywhere on the
webpage where you might have this info... He was a W. Lowden Cabinet
Photo's Dundee. I did find a photo of a Elizabeth Lowden Dundee 1849
in St Andrews Univerity Photographic Collection which might have
been his wife? http://specialcollections.st-and.ac.uk/
As this is
when I think our photo's were taken a couple of years before our
Esther Kelly came to Australia. Well enough from me.. Any help
would be appreciated. I see I've just got a email from the group in
so off to read it.. Bye for now Sylvia.
