My idea for this started because I have so much unsorted information about Meehan and Meighans that I've come across -- in passenger lists, census records, etc. etc -- that I don't know what I have. I want to gradually enter all of this stuff into a database so that if I am searching, say, for info on an Andrew Meighan or Meehan, I can tell whether I have information about such a person or not. I'm going to begin working on this database and will enter various sources over time, and keep the data also available on this web site. In the meantime I have the raw lists -- the Civil War Rosters and Immigrant list I posted today to this list -- up on the web site. If any of you have any other such lists that I could post up there, please let me know.
I also have a list of Meehan / Meighan family researchers and a list of links to Meighan / Meehan information on the web. Anyone who would like to be included in the list of researchers, please send me your contact info and a sentence or two about your research focus, and I will add you to the list. Also if anyone knows of any info on the web relating to Meighan or Meehan family research, please let me know and I'll add a link to it.
I hope you'll stop by and visit the web site, and make additions and suggestions to it -- and I hope you'll find it useful. Once again, it is at http://home.earthlink.net/~mdmeighan/MeighanGenealogyhttp://home.earthlink.net/~mdmeighan/MeighanGenealogy-- stop on by!
