I know my family originally came from somewhere in Ireland but I don't know for sure where. My great grandfather's name was Lee Leo O'Byrne which was changed to Byrne when he arrived at Ellis Island. That that is about all I know and I'm not 100% sure of this information. Is it possible that someone can maybe help me?

When did he arrive? If the ship name can be pinned down, maybe the port of departure can be determined.

You will find the Byrne Sept mostly around County Wicklow. My own come from Rathdrum And Dublin there is a book called Leabhar Branach The Book of the O'Byrnes edited by Sean Mac Airt  ISBN 1 85500 008 3 if you go to an Irish name site they will give you more information Than I have space for here. hope this helps.
