This is a One Name Study to collect together in one place everything about one surname and the variants of that name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join our study to help make it a valuable reference point for people studying lines that cross or intersect.

My Carr family were from County Kildare, Ireland. Most were born in Suncroft, Monasterevin or Maddenstown. My immigrant ancestor Dennis Carr settled in Salem, Massachusetts. His parents were Martin Carr and Esther Dowling. I am looking for other Carr researchers from this family line. Most Carr lineages are in neighboring County Laois so it's likely this lineage will eventually connect back to a Carr lineage there. Anyone who would like to compare with my autosomal testing on Gedmatch, my kit number is T210818.

Kindest regards, Joe

Descendant of Thomas Carr, Bridgewater,MA B. 1710? Based on the Carr bible of ancestors. I cannot trace back to Europe and would like to see if this forum may help me search. Thank you!

I'm happy to find this project. I have Carr ancestors from Pottsville, PA area dating back to early 1800s. There I have hit a brick wall. Last known is John Henry Carr, about 1823. I believe his father was Philip but I cannot trace him. I think this is the branch of my tree where my Irish DNA comes from but haven't been able to prove. Any suggestions would be welcome.

Hello, I'm delighted to see a Carr One Name Study being set up here. I have done lots of research over the years on the Carrs of Northumberland and County Durham, England and their branches and have found many online resources for them. Please, could I help with the Carr One Name Study in any way? New member, so trying to find my way around here. :)

So I've ran into a possible variation of Carr but I'm not sure that it belongs in this study. The spelling is 'KEAR', but was apparently pronounced CARR and is sometimes found in censi written as "KERR". ... Kerr is most definitely in this study, but should we include KEAR?
