Right now I am resurchering Fisher, Kelly and O 'Neil
What countries and other locations are you interested in researching?
United States, Irland
What is your level of genealogy knowledge?
Advanced Family History Researcher
If you are a genealogy expert, what are your specialties?
I would say my specialties are in resurrecting early immigrants to New York, as I have done extensive research in this area. It can be difficult because the original records were in dutch and there have been many mistakes in the translations of these records.
For what reason did you start genealogy research?
I had alway wondered about my fathers side ot the family. My mother family had been recent immigrents to the United States. My maternal grandmother was born in Ireland and my maternal grandfather' parents were both born in Ireland. My fathers family never spoke of when they had immigrated, and when I asked my father he assumed that they had probably come over during the famine. I guess that having no real answers made me curious and when computer made resourcing relatively easy I began looking for answers to questions I had never had answered.
