We’re a little out of our league here, and decided to go to some fans and ask for advice on the information we’re seeking. We’re genealogists searching for information on a man named James Henry McKenna, who was born about 1872 in Chicago, Cook County, Illinois, USA and lived in Quebec for a certain amount of time. James like to go by the name Jim, some people have him listed as Joe (Wikipedia included but they also have ‘Joe’ linked to a man born in 1951 and that’s just all wrong! We’ll sort that out.) but we really think Joe is a mistake. We believe James died in 1928, possibly in Chicago.

We’re looking for information on the Montreal Shamrocks, specifically their goalie in 1899, 1900 and 1901. We believe our James played for the team. We have a few really good copies of a photo taken of the team after their Stanley Cup win in 1899, but the 1900 version we’ve found leaves a lot to be desired, and the possibility of reading the names is right out.

Can you help us with this? Do you know where we could get a copy of the 1900 Stanley Cup Winner Photos? Do you know anything about the goalie of the 1899-1900 Stanley Cup wins? Is there records of team members, accomplishments or any recorded media of the time that can be accessed by the public?

We’d be more than happy to add your name to a list of sources and thanks that we keep up for assistance with our research and we really appreciate all responses.
