UPDATE 10-29-2010  One of our distant Kelly cousins (Susan Bibus - a descendant of Edward Kelly, James Francis Kelly's Uncle) has been working on the Kelly genealogy and has found an internment record for Charles and Catherine Kelly - James Francis Kelly's grandparents. Go to the Doc/Records page and scroll down to "Cemetery Records" to view the internment record. Our history continues to unfold...

Please sign the guest book and wish him well.


UPDATE 08-13-2009  I have been contacted by a descendant of Edward C. Kelly (James Francis Jr's Uncle) and have added a chart showing the Edward C. Kelly line.  Many of his descendants are still in the Philadelphia area.  I also have a picture of Edward C. Kelly's children from around 1910.  Check out the "Charts" and "Pictures" links above to see the new content.


UPDATE 12-15-2008  I have received the death certificate of James F. Kelly Sr.  The good news... I got it.  The bad news... it lists James' father as Denis Kelly.  I have a census record with a Denis Kelly and James Kelly but James is listed as a nephew.v I suspect that Florence Kelly (Getz), who provided the information for the death record, incorrectly provided the name of Denis Kelly as James' father.  Go to the documents/records page to view the record.v As what often happens - receipt of a record doesn't always answer your questions... it just creates more.  The next step... birth record (if they had them back in 1869...).
