Introduction to Dennis Buggy research

No one seems to know where in County Kilkenny, Ireland, Dennis Buggy was born.  Some sources give his birth year as 1830, some as 1833.  My goal is to:
1    Discover Dennis Buggy’s birthdate and birthplace,
2    Demonstrate a “reasonably exhaustive search” and explain the research process as I go,
3    Record my research and findings, and 
4    Explore the use of a blog as a research report.

Each post will treat a specific type of research aimed at discovering Dennis Buggy's birthdate and birthplace, beginning with compiled genealogies and online databases.  Depending on the findings, research will move on to newspapers, censuses, and the whole range of records available to researchers and the interested general public.  U.S. records about Dennis Buggy will be a starting point.  Hopefully they will provide a springboard to Irish records.

My next post will discuss a published Buggy family history.  Can’t wait!
