You do not say where you have looked already so it is a little tricky to advise you. However, some basic facts are that Sir Ernest Shackleton (1874-1922) was born in Kilkea, County Kildare. His father, Henry (originally from Yorkshire) and mother Henrietta Gavan moved to Sydenham, South London when Ernest was 10 yrs. Ernest married Emily Dorman and they had three children - Raymond, Cecily and Edward. Do any of the places or names mentioned fit with what you already know? Perhaps you could give us a little more information on your family to see if we can help any further.

William who is in my family is from settle Yorkshire. I am registered on find my past but go to the library to check the hints as I don't have the money to pay for the subscription. Lol. I got quite a bit of information from wikitree as someone found my side of the family was connected to hers.
