I found this group when I was searching for my Great Grandmother's ancesters on  My great grandmother's US maiden name was Braun and I was hitting a brick wall until I found out her French Canadian maiden name was LeBrun.  Anyone out there looking for the Shriver/LeBrun  link?

When I married my Western NY husband in '92, I had no idea that I, too, had Western NY roots!  My aunt had discovered that my great-grandfather George Pleau came from Rochester.  I've since discovered so much about him & his family.  This past year, I got to visit my great-great grandparents' graves at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery.

Also researching Riley of Rochester, New York.  Dr. Walter Riley was a well known medical examiner for many years. His parents were James T. Riley and Anna Prindergast.  There may have been a step-mother as well.

Researching the Donovans of Rochester, New York.  James F. (1856-1927) and his siblings and his parents.  I am sure he had two brothers, Michael and Timothy.  Parents may have been Timothy and Ellen (found on the census) but haven't confirmed.
