Welcome to all of you family members, genealogists and internet wanderers. My family tree is actually a forest of assorted names and locations. Check out the branches to discover if you share a leaf or two.
Surnames (above and to the right). Here are the main family trees. My goal is to include names, dates, descendants, photographs, documents & sources for my information. These names link to locations & cemeteries. Related? Contact me to share & compare.
Locations (above and to the right). Here you can find my family names associated with each location, useful websites and blogs, books, maps and other resources that are helpful for research there. Do you have a favorite resource: archive, book, website to share? Let me know.

- May 17, 2019: 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks: NATURE; Ireland - Leaves & Branches
Amy Johnson Crow challenges us to remember our ancestors and their families through this task: 52 Ancestors in 52 Weeks. I completed ’52 Ancestors’ in 2014 & here I go again. This post is in response to that challenge. The topic for this week is NATURE.
Clonmel. County Tipperary, Ireland
In 2012 my oldest daughter and I traveled to Ireland. We rented a car and drove around the island. We were both site seeing & researching our Irish roots. One of the first places we went was Clonmel, home of our Daniel Mullane family.
The Daniel Mullane family took picnics to Saint Patrick’s Well. Old black and white home movies show the place, easily recognizable by the stone cross. Family stories tell of the dog running away with Aunt Nell’s hat and when he was chased the hat ended up in the water. I was delighted to be be in the same place my ancestors had enjoyed. Now the ancient site is the setting for memories for another generation of our family.
It was a beautiful. peaceful place. A good place to enjoy nature & think about our family.
St. Patrick has always had d special place in my heart because I was born on his Saint's Day, St. Patrick's Day. So his well near Clonmel is special in many ways.
I hope you enjoy these NATURE photos from our memorable trip.
