Welcome to the ancestry and genealogical research hub here in The Wild Geese community. Here, you'll be able to communicate with your fellow amateur genealogists, and even professional genealogists as you tenaciously work toward filling out that family tree.This is where we'll work together as we attempt to break through the "brick walls" in our family history research.See More
"What a fascinating list of Irish reads. I have only read one in the list, so this may be my winter reading list. I read every day....everything. Time to check my local library for these titles!! Thanks again"
My Irish heritage can be found in the soils of Belfast, Tipperary, Roscommon on my Maternal great-great-grandparents. All but one of my great-grandparents was born in the United States. Ironically my last name comes from my mostly Polish father's side...My paternal great-great-grandfather was from Ireland. I am descended from O'Neill's, Gowdy's, Crogan's, Dougherty's, Downing's, Pfife's, Scanlon's, McDermott's and Condon's so far! Yearly, the descendants of my maternal grandfather, Thomas F Gowdy get together. We refer to ourselves as the "Gowdy Girls, For Sure For Sure". Tee-shirts do exist and women and men alike wear them proudly!!
