Irish Families Researched by Geni Users

This project has been created on request from the Geni users who are researching Irish families.

This will replace the current Roll-Call Irish families researched discussion as this is becoming too difficult to read through .
The names will be where possible listed with a place name and with a link to the profile of the person who is also researching the name.

If you would like to add your name, please use the alphabetical order used in the list below.

Also provide the place of origin if known.

If adding a name to the list below is too difficult or you do not know how you can use the discussion board here from this project and the name will be added to the list
