Grew up in Barrington, Cambridgeshire, attending the Perse School for Boys. Studied Economics at Warwick University and then moved to Birmingham (Hall Green, Yardley, Shirley and finally Solihull) on starting career with Ernst & Young.
Lived in Cleveland, Ohio, USA between 2001 and 2003. Moved to Ireland in 2006, living first in Malahide, Co. Dublin and then the Letterkenny area.
First-hand information. Entered by Jason Cottrell at registration.
Grandparents are Cottrell, Morris, Croft and Grant. I have entered details for my direct ancestors to complete my 'compact tree' to the extent there is reliable information to date.
I also research my wife's family tree. Her grandparents are Lynch, Cullen, Burke and Bonner.
I have uploaded my wife's family tree as there are elements of this I am missing (largely due to the lack of Irish records in the 1800s).
Leader of the Donegal sub-project of the Irish Roots programme.

Thanks for the note on this profile, William Templeton, about adding a town land for him in Donegal. I'll look at the Sources for him and see if I can find one. NONE of my Templetons (County Antrim) have town lands because we don't know where the came from other than the county. I would be a family hero if I were to determine that. lol

John Rover's birth date is listed in the family book as 3 different times. His tombstone date, which gives his age at death is also questionable. So using the Rover Genealogy book I went with 1810 ,not scientific but John and Ann's dates were all messed up and all over the place. Carolyn

Thanks for the comment on Thomson v Thompson on the profile of Helen Proudfoot Violet Thompson. She signed herself Thomson on her marriage certificate but I've now retrieved her birth certificate and see that she is registered as Thompson so I've changed it.
I'm (slowly) trying to improve my profiles so any other contributions are welcome!
Thanks Anne Johnston
