Hello. My Breen Family is originally from County Armagh and the Townlands of Clonroot and Drumard (Jones) near Battle Hill and Rich Hill in what is today Craigavon, Northern Ireland. My family was Church of Ireland. Other names associated are Ruddell, McCann, Preston, Pierson, Jackson and McFadden.

Hello, my name looks long but I go by Jan to keep things simple. I have just joined this group so I may need a bit of time to figure things out. In the US, my Irish ancestors surnames are Burns and Farley. I know there are different spellings of both names. I've only seen my 2nd great-grandfather's name spelled as Burns but I know this is more common in Scotland and that there are various Irish spellings such as Byrns. However, my 2nd great-grandmother's name is more questionable regarding the true spelling. Her name was Sarah Jane Farley in many US records such as census reports but the other possibilities are Farrelley (in Ireland) and Farrell in Ireland and the US. She, at least, was said to have come from County Louth. My Irish family has kept me up many nights so if anyone has any suggestions, I'd be happy to hear them. This is my introduction. Thank you.
