BRIAN POWER IS LOOKING FOR KENEFICKS/KENNEFICKS, IN EAST CORK/ WEST WATERFORD (Clonmult/Tallow/Youghal areas), IRELAND possibly his father, WHO COULD BE AGED IN HIS 90’S.

My cousin Brian Power does not know his paternal line


Brian was born in 1946. He spent a number of his early years in a children’s home in Dublin. Later he joined his mother in England where he still resides. Brian’s yDNA matches at 37 markers. He is an exact match with an American Kenefake (who has done 111 markers) who emigrated from Ireland before 1805, probably from the East Cork area, to North America. It seems likely that Brian’s paternal line is Kennefick. Through DNA I have found second and fourth cousins of Brian in the Shanagarry/Aghada/Youghal areas.

Are there any Kenneficks/Keneficks (perhaps biologically and adopted?) who were friendly with Brian’s mother Peggy (Margaret Mary) Power (b.1923) in the Clonmult or Tallow or Youghal areas in the 1940s? Peggy also lived and worked in Dublin during some of that time, in the Rathmines/Rathgar area. It is thought that she worked for a medical doctor.
