Searching: Robert E. O' Hara, Elizabeth O' Hara, Mary Elizabeth O' Hara, Elizabeth O' Hara

Please explain to me how I can access which site the listings are in via your data base. I can see where the people I have listed are *on* your data base. But for some reason that I haven't quite figured out I can't get to the listings of the site. Please help

Webmaster's Reply: Dear Kathleen,

Access to the datebase is through http://oharas.com/persons. The links on this page generate - in addition the main table of all persons in the database - tables of persons selected by geographical location, Irish county or country of origin and dates. There is a search facility near the top of the page which allows you to formulate queries yourself; for example by selecting surnames you could look for families intermarried with O'Haras. Near the bottom of the page there is a link to the ‘O'Hara Genealogy Forum’ whose entries are the source of the data.

If I understand you correctly, your searched for your O'Haras and found the tables in which they are listed, for example for Mary Elizabeth you might have selected forenames from the pull-down menu and entered %Mary, Elizabeth% - note that I have separated double forenames and forenames followed by an initial with a comma. You would also find Mary Elizabeth under GA if you search locations. I guess your problem is finding the detailed information on say Mary Elizabeth. Well according to the table listing her this is entry number 907 (which in this case is your own message) at the ‘O'Hara Genealogy Forum’. At the bottom of the database main page you will find a link to this forum; the link is also at the top or bottom of the query pages. When you click this link you get the complete listings of all the messages posted so far. There is a "jump to box" at the top where you should enter 907 and click "go". The link is: http://genforum.genealogy.com/ohara/all.html.

I wish you success in your search for your O'Haras !
