Hello Nova - I noticed your comment on the chat page. Thought I would ask where in Ontario you are as I had ancestors living in Elizabethtown, Leeds County. If you lived close, was wondering if you could tell me about the place, etc. Thanks, Sandra

Yep, I've got World Deluxe. Unfortunately, the only Robert Fitzgerald born around the time of my Robert's birth was in 1838, to a John and Mary Fitzgerald (according to the Drouin). I can't track down this family in the 1852 transcriptions on automated genealogy, so I don't know if this is a link or not.

My information (unsubstantiated, as it is) has Robert being the son of Robert Fitzgerald and Margaret Regan. I'm willing to believe it's something different if I can actually make a solid connection.

Thanks for the interest, Nova. As far as I know, it was Quebec. Robert Fitzgerald noted on more than one census that he was born Feb 1839 in Quebec, and Matthew, his brother also noted Quebec, with a dob of Jan 1837.

Family legend says that their parents, Robert and Margaret, sailed in from Ireland to settle in Boston. At the bottom of the gangplank, the immigration official told them that their were "too many Irish" and sent them back onto the ship. The ship then steamed for Canada, where they settled. Robert and Matthew were then born there, and eventually traveled down to Illinois, where they settled in McLean county, and each had a herd of children.

I'm an Ancestry subscriber, a member of Q-R, and I've searched the Automated Genealogy site extensively, and I can't seem to track them down in Canada at all. I've also come up short looking for any sort of passenger records.

Anything you might have in the way of help would be greatly appreciated.
