Hello, I'm a newbie, and today's my first day of being hooked on geneaology!
I'm not certain if I'm related to this Atkin family we're talking about, but I'll throw out my info just in case it helps. My father, Noel Liam Atkin is from Dublin, Ireland. His Mother Patricia Philhomena Atkin (maiden name was McCarthy) is a native Dubliner. Her husband, (my Grandfather) Desmond Barrington Atkin, was originally from England.
