looking for progengy of Torpey (f) +White(m) Australia

Query by julianne

My great grandparents were Michael Francis Higgins and Brigid Torpey, Australia, their children Timothy O'Callaghan Higgins and Edward Cudmore Higgins. Am looking for Brigid's family. She had many sisters , they married into the White family having daughters Maureen and Carmel. Not sure if these girls were cousins of Tim and Ed or my father, Francis Higgins' cousins. othernames associated with Torpeys are Carroll, Kennedy.....Have photos of Maureen and Carmel White also Brigid Torpey. Latter's name could be Bridget.
Greatgrandparents settled in Victoria, Australia.

Hi Julianne, Do you have some dates to go on

white-torpey marriage would have been mid 19th century in australia. Ibelieve there are white relatives still living near Kells in Co. Meath Irland. My parents visited them in mid 1970s but both parents now dead.

Julianne, See what The Surname Navigator can dig up on your TORPEY relatives. Just click on a country from the drop down list, type in TORPEY and click on submit. It's a genie search engine that can look up to 14 different places at one time.

If you have dialup internet it may take a while but can be really worth it.

Also, have you been to the Emigrants to Australia board at [url=http://rootschat.com/]RootsChat/url] before? Perhaps rootschatters can find your HIGGINS/TORPEY marriage and maybe locate Bridget's family. Lots of rootschatters have bdm indexes or Digger to every State in Australia (especially Victoria).

See also the National Archives of Australia 33 records for TORPEY.
