|The DONNELLY family originated in Ireland Pre 1600 although records are very difficult to trace before that time.|
The COLLINS family also had their roots in Ireland and were united through Dan Donnelly & Anne Collins 1st.June 1948.
Many of the families' ancestors would have travelled to USA, or England, some during the great Irish potato famine and many more much later.
The'TREE' at present, has started at around 500 names & 6 generations and is building rapidly, across UK, USA, Norway,& Australia. A few of the more common names included are Keating, Peart, Rasmussen, Carroll, Richards, Fitzgerald, & Moriarty.
The intention is to go back as far as possible, keeping the main database relatively narrow. Associated families with broader links will form other family trees which can then be cross-referenced.
Let's go huntin' !
