About Our Family Research

I startedresearching my maiden name which is O'Hara. Both of my parents came from the same part of Ireland, which was Aclare Co. Sligo, and both of them were named O'Hara. It gets pretty confusing because there were 11 children in my mothers family, and 7 in my dad's family. Of course knowing there nicknames helps. My mother was known as the "Boaty O'Hara's", my father was the "Pat Heamus" O'Hara .
My husband came from Bonniconlon, Ballina, Co., Mayo, which is about 7 miles from Aclare, thru the Windy Gap.So why not look up both while I am doing it.
If anyone has information regarding either of these families,
e-mail me at
