About Our Family Research


I have just started doing my family tree. Date: Gt Gdfather 1860. Other names coming up Coghlan of Dunmanway, McCarthy Cashel, O' Donovan, My gt gdmother was Hayes, Hayes also comes up on great uncles line. The most significant step was a visit to the estate in Carorgariff, my grandparents were tenant farmers. I discovered the land lord was famous, William Thompson. I visited a local historian who put me on to books he had written.
My cousin in Baltimore Co. Cork visited parish priest for records. Also visited grave yards, and record keeper of grave yard. He recorded interview with the only surviving neighbour now in late 80s.
