I would like to know more about the McSweeney family, as my great great grandmother was a Sweeney from Ireland, maybe Cork. Her father was Joseph Jackson Greer Sweeney 1852-1936. His father was Benjamin Swinney. Name changed a lot. But now are Sweeneys. Original Irish name may have been Mac Suibhne. They were old Gaelic, Norse descent. Maybe from Argyle. Need story of Thomas McSweeney during Irish famine of 1845 and info about the famine and the McSweeneys. Thanks!
I am an ancestor of the Whalen name and would like more info about my past there was a book published about my family but my father r.i.p was the last person the author spoke to so I am intrigued to know more
