RESEARCHING THE FAMILY OF ( BRIDGET ANNE COFFEY ) 1951 - 2015 We have been trying to research our late Mothers family, but without very much to go on it is extremely frustrating.

We have some Irish dna in my family. Now I found an unusual name in my pedigree ten generations back. "Agnish, daughter of Christer" got married in year 1647 to a Finnish farmer. In google I learned that "Aigneis" is an old Irish-Celtic name. Could Agnish be Irish? Do we get our Irish dna from her? Church books have little information from these early days, but Agnish' descendants are many living today.

My grandmother’s name last name was Obins or I also saw it as Obens. I have only found it in N. Ireland. I believe her father was flax merchant. I found it in the town where the Orangemen parade every year. I forget the name.

Tried to respond to DEBRA COLE but cant. The Sweeney clan are Irish 100% NOT Norse. Gaelic original is indeed Mac Suibhne.

Comments #6 Abbie Kirk Grillo I am seeking more information on my Kirk family from Ireland. I am looking for information on Daniel Kirk 1733- 1821 and his father John Thomas Kirk born in later 1600s and married to Mary Ann Steele. John Thomas Kirk is possibly the father of Daniel Kirk. Both Daniel and John were born in Scotland and migrated to Ireland.

#-2 Abbie Kirk Grillo

I am seeking more information on my Kirk family from Ireland. I am looking for information on Daniel Kirk 1733- 1821 and his wife Anna (Knight) Kirk 1733 - 1793 born in Donegal County, Ireland and possibly buried at Inver Church of Ireland. I believe they had 8 children.

#-3 Debra Cole

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!

#-4 Tina Whalen
