The Irish/Scottish Doherty and Barra McNeil Families

Updated August 25, 2009

About Our Family Research


Hi - A family member recently sent a genetic sample to Familytreedna.com, which has a genetic project for Doherty's, among others. The project is building a gentic data base for persons with the name Doherty. There is a cost of course, but it might be of interest to other relatives of ours. The link follows: http://www.familytreedna.com/Login.aspx

Remember:

When you look at family trees please remember to press "d" on the squares for more details.

I hope you enjoy the information and pictures shared on this site. Be sure to visit each link and when you look at the Family Tree links be sure to read the instructions because you will have access to much more information than meets the eye.

If you are a descendant of DOHERTY, MCNEIL, CLANCY, JARF OR STYRMAN you will find this page of interest.

The family research focused on Hugh Doherty, born March 17, 1877 in Granard, Ireland. His wife was Isabella McNeil, born August 29, 1878 in Tangasdale, Barra. Isabella is descended from the Clancy's of Ireland who settled on Barra.

We also have collected family information on the Jarf and Styrman families of Finland in the Kotka area.

PLEASE BE SURE TO EMAIL ME AFTER VIEWING MY SITE. I ENJOY FEEDBACK AND AM USUALLY QUICK TO REPLY. IF YOU HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS OR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION I WOULD BE VERY INTERESTED TO HEAR FROM YOU.

Please Enjoy!

Kathy
