Hello Everyone,
My name is Eileen and I`m a newbie at Family Research, I started about two months ago and it got me, Hook, Line and Sinker lol. I don`t really know how this site works but will hopefully catch on soon.
I am a Single Parent of two, my Daughter is 23 and my son is 15 and is at home with me, 2 dogs and 1 cat.
I work as a Cook and enjoy walking the dogs, reading, sewing and socialising with friends at the weekend but of course my new passion is Family History, I love it. I have quite a few Irish Ancestors and trying to find out which part of Ireland they came from is a nightmare, but I`ll keep on digging even if I have to go county by County and Parish by Parish, any advice is most welcome lol.
Best Wishes to All
Eileen

Hi Armstrong1961,

If you put your queries in the relevant forum, I'm sure you will recieve help.
Obviously you will find it that bit harder looking in Ireland. But things have moved on recently, and there is more help available now than there was before.
When looking for Irish rellies, don't forget the name variations that occur. e.g. o'neil, Neil, Neal, o'neal, Nial, Niall and so forth. The 'o's do get dropped quite freqently.
Also their religion, if known, is also another factor.
Also take note of any Irish Gaelic variations also.

Here are a few sites that may be of help.

I'm sure you will get lumps of help here.
