Thank you for continuing to update
us on these atrocities. When I was in Ireland 3 yes ago for my brothers funeral, I was told about my mothers sister Helen Gardiner who was sent to one of these homes because she was pregnant. She lived in Cuilmore,
Gurteen and died on May 21, 1970
at the age of 48 yrs., which means she
Was born in 1922. There was a list of
babies last names published & I saw
Gardiner on it I think 1948. However
There were no first names of mothers or
babies. How can I find out? If anyone
can help I’d appreciate it. I’m in the
U.S., in the Boston area.
I will try and find a direct contact for you Kathleen but maybe try Patricia Mc Walter of the Galway County Council Archives. firstname.lastname@example.org first and see if she can help you find out more information. They have digitised many files and may be able to direct you.
The collections, together with detailed descriptive lists, are available at http://www.galway.ie/digitalarchives/.
You can also email email@example.com the historian who discovered the graves as he research may have listed the mothers names, kind regards Mannix
