Private User is researching the names:
Healy -from county Cork
Dingley - from Dublin and maybe Scotland
Breen - from Dublin
O'Connell - from Cork
Millard - from Cork
There is not mucht to help here, hoping that the members of the Irish portal will participate in this and add their names to this discussion.
If you have Scottish familymembers see [http://www.geni.com/projects/UK-Portal-Scotland UK Portal-Scotland]
I am researching the names :
From Castlecomer, County Kilkenny. 1) RYAN 2) SHORTALL 3) DORMER 4) CLOSE.
From Leighlinbridge, County Carlow. 1) WALSH 2) CLARKE.
From Ratoath, County Meath. 1) ELLIOTT.
From County Kildare 1) MONAHAN. 2) DEMPSEY 3) BYRNE.
From County Wicklow 1) KELLY 2) PLANT 3) KILFOYLE.
From County Westmeath 1) SALMON
Also O'BRIEN from County Carlow but originally from Limerick city, ENGLISH from Waterford and WEBB from County Meath.
Edward Francis Boyle, born in Ireland c.1810, shows up in Cincinnati in 1830's. We only know that he is Irish by US census data and that is how we are estimating his year of birth.
Margaret Boyle, wife of Edward above. Again, all we have on her is US census data.
Annemarie is already looking at these two. The possible Edward is too young, but I have family looking at what she gave me for Margaret.
Private User, you usually do not need projects for individual names. You can just use the surname pages to locate all profiles with that last name. Here's an example: http://www.geni.com/surnames/hilgen So unless there's another specific objective, there's no need to have both a project and a surname page; the surname page is usually sufficient.
yes, thanks you, i did that during the time I was learning how to use geni for my genealogy, but thought it was not what GENI-staff wanted with this, for later you had to pay to look for all the ones with a certain surname. Now I know how to find them all by using Google, but I do not like that, for it means that also all my own profiles older than -lets say, dont know the law about that to good in the Netherlands, hundred years, some even less, can be found by others. And that means that others can use my very unusual fathersname to search for family-members abroad.
I have quite a bit of Conan's family into his tree, but I still can't connect him in. I'm currently trying to find the parents of James Francis Reardon and Thomas Francis O'Brien, Sr., since the parents were all born in Ireland. I'm also trying to find James Gavin and Bridget Gavin, but I don't know anything about them, just what shows up on the U.S. Census.
For Leary, he has a fairly close cousin on Geni who has a private tree, but it also doesn't go far back enough to connect. I believe their relationship -- they're known to be third cousins -- is through the Gavins.
Oh, and in my own tree, I have a dead end with Jessima Knowles, who arrived in the Bahamas in c. 1850. Jessima is an odd name to say the least, so I'm hoping to somehow find her in Irish records based on that. Unfortunately, we have no clue about her birth date.
Eldon, I think you answered your own question. :) While I can't speak for anyone, you might want to do a separate project for Scots-Irish ancestry since it's pretty different, including in records. And it will help avoid diplomacy headaches. I don't say it to say "Go away," but rather to say something focused on Scots-Irish might be a lot more useful for you.
Eldon Clark (Geni volunteer curator) there is going to be a project for the Scotch -Irish on the Northern Ireland project, most Scottish lived in Northern Ireland. Will also create a more extensive project about the plantation of Ulster, the history of the Scottish in Ulster[http://www.geni.com/projects/Northern-Ireland-portal Northern Ireland portal]
@Sean Sherwin maybe we should create a project with the Irish versions of the surnames , so that people can check the original names.

i am researching LEWIS from laois, aswell as LABAN.
HUTTON from Berwickshire, Dublin and Dumfries(came over to ireland with cromwell and settled in Dublin)
SHEANE(pronounced shane or shehan, mostly shane today) from Carlow some went over to Canada and USA.
TYNER from Cork MELLIFONT, from cork, GOOD from Cork, RICE from cork
Kenneth Kwame Welsh, (C) Sounds great I don't think mine were involved in the plantation but they were Presbyterians in County Antrim
Private User, do people in Ireland really say "Scotch-Irish" instead of "Scots-Irish"? I thought "Scotch-Irish" faded out long ago. I usually see "Scots-Irish" in academic writing. Interesting to see the variation. :) I was always taught that Scots are a people and Scotch is a drink. ;)
Though I believe that the term in Ireland is actually "Ulster Scots," and that "Scotch/Scots-Irish" is an Americanism only. Maybe the Scotch/Scots-Irish -- meaning the ones who settled in the U.S. -- would be a sub-project for the Ulster Scots project?
Oh, and I guess I should add that my partner is a Shaughnessy (Ó Seachnasaigh) from Clarinbridge, County Galway. He has no interest in genealogy at all, but I'd be curious enough to collaborate with anyone working in that area. I believe the Galway Shaughnessys branched off from the Limerick ones?
