About Our Family Research
Upon locating my long-lost Aunt Teddy: - Terese(nee Gallagher)Burkowitz[1st marriage]Burnbaum and 2 of her 3 children/my 1st cousins - Stacey ------- Berkowitz (Youngest) - Derrick Wildes (her only child/my 2nd cousin) - Michael ------ Berkowitz (Middle Child)
after almost 40 years of separation due to the ego-centric machinations of the woman who gave birth to me, we found we had a mutual interest in our Gallagher Family History.
A Family Bible left to my Aunt Teddy has given us a start Going Back Several Generations and including the surnames: Braden (mispelled Bradin, Braedon, Bredin, etc.) McNeal (mispelled McNiel, McNeel, MacNeal, etc.) Lacroix (Variations: LaCroix, La Croix, Lacroix and de la Croix
It is believed that the Lacroix branch was French with an authentic Family Crest, Episcopalian and extended back to An Episcopailian Bishop
The remaining branches are believed to be Irish. We welcome any and all with whom our Family tree instersects.
