In Reply to: Seeking My US & Dublin Irish Connections by Mary Beth Dingle Hunnewell of 352

Only just commenced tracing family history.I'm based in Dublin, Ireland. My Mother was a Dingle. Her Uncle Christopher Dingle (born in 1865 - died 1947) worked in the GPO all his career - occupation listed in Irish Census 1901 as Tracer GPO. He is the only Christopher Dingle listed in 1901 & 1911 Irish census which is now available online. His Father was Thomas Dingle who married Margaret Howard in or about 1862. Family christian names of brothers & sisters of Christopher were Thomas, Peter, Edward, Joseph, Mary, Ellen, Elizabeth Josephine, Margaret & Alice. (Thomas had 10 children). Only Peter left Ireland & settled in Bernardsville USA in 1920 - no children - died 1946. All of my Dingles originated in North County Dublin, which includes Howth - a reference I came across in another posting. I recall my mother saying that we had some connections buried in Malahide Castle graveyard. Most of the family that I have been able to trace are buried in Kilbarrack graveyard near Howth. I suspect Thomas had brother(s)& sister(s) which I haven't yet traced. I'm still researching that possibility. Don't know if there is any connection, but the one & only Christopher in Dublin in 1911 was my Grand uncle & he worked in the GPO.
