I have been researching my family history for over 30 years and am now writing a book. It will include both sides of the family – the Colberts and the Whelans. They all came from Ireland and they all settled in New York City.
The Colberts were the first to arrive – in 1843, and my grandmother Annie Shanley Whelan, the last – in 1901.
Family Names are:
Colbert – Ryan, Roche, Ashe, Coleman, Fitzsimmons, Wallace, Crowe
Whelan – Shanley, Ahern, Keating, Collins, Heffernan, delaGarde, Gibbons, Fagan
I would love to contact extended family and exchange information.
The banner picture is of Lough Sheelin, Ross, County Meath – taken by Kate Forman during her trip there a few years ago. My grandmother was born in Ross. Kate also checked out nearby Greenan which was the home of the Ashe family.
I try to post on a regular basis; but it doesn’t always happen. If you’d like to know when I have a new post, “Follow Me”
