Hi All,

Just a quick note to introduce myself, and why I chose to volunteer.

I'm Shawn O'Hara originally from the Central/Southen Tier or New York State. I have been working on my genealogy for several years and have become addicted to it! I have had some great success tracking some of my ancestors while running into road blocks and dead ends on others. Specifically I'd like to further expand and discover my family roots from Ireland (O'Hara) and from Germany (Weis). I look forward to working with you all and discovering what we have in commen.

Best!

-Shawn

Glad to have you here, Shawn.  I don't have many ancestors from New York, but I do have a Thompson couple who alternated living between Niagira Falls and Columbus Ohio.  And much earlier there was a Richard Clarke who settled in Long Island before moving to New Jersey.  And for that matter my 2ggrand father and family, Stephen Dardinger from Switzerland arrived in New York in 1858 on the William Tell before moving west to Ohio.

Thanks, Dave. One thing I've learned about genealogy is you never know where it will lead you.
