Did you know that there are 3,849 listings for Kerry natives at the Database for Irish Immigrants published in the Boston Pilot ? This newspaper published advertisements called 'Missing Friends' from 1831 to 1921. Family members who had lost contact with each other placed advertisements in the newspaper in order to find each other again. I recently made contact with someone who was able to find their townland of origin by means of this wonderful resource. So if you haven't tried it already, get clicking on the link and good luck!
