Hey Brad,

There is many a statement started with these words! 😉

How far back in time were your ancestors making their way to the New country?

This is the start of your journey of discovery here on the island of Ireland! ☘️

Hello Brad,

What a fun adventure into the past! It's always lovely to see people exploring their roots and I'd be happy to help offer a bit of advice.

There's a wonderful thread right here in our community that is full of helpful advice about how to get started discovering your ancestry. In particular, I'd recommend reaching out to a genealogical center in the area you suspect your ancestors may have hailed from. That's the best option for records from before 1864, when civil registration began to formally record births, marriages, and deaths across Ireland.

Do you have any ideas on where your family may call home?

Hello Brad,

County Clare is a lovely area to have this connection with!

Thank you for sharing a bit about this journey into your family's history, as well! It certainly sounds like you've done a lot of research into your roots and I sincerely wish you luck in learning even more.

Warmly,

~Rochelle
