Thanks to Tim Kane of Seattle for a link to a Biography of Dominick O'Kane and his Family [43 MB file]. Dominick was the son of Bernard O'Kane who left the townland of Gorteade in the 1860s for the North East of England where Dominick was born. Later the family emigrated to America.

For those of you interested in the Glens of Antrim region, you will find information on some families and localities at the Clachan Project within the Glens of Antrim Historical Society website.

Remember that if you have difficulty reading any of the c.1860 Six Inch townland maps you can get a better copy at askaboutireland.ie [Griffith's Valuation]. If you are not sure of what to do, when you get there - read this. Note also that the maps covering many parts of Mid Antrim on the askaboutireland.ie website are OS maps which do not demarcate the boundaries of holdings and do not include the numbers and lettering from the printed valuation.Unfortunately there are no large scale town maps on askaboutireland.ie so I had to use the copies of the town maps that are held in PRONI. The town maps [and the rural townland maps] have been reproduced here with the kind permission of the Deputy Keeper of Records, Public Record Office of Northern Ireland.
