The goals of the Cork, Regan Name Study project are:

  1. To find every non-living person with the Regan, Ragan, or Reagan surname who lived in County Cork, Ireland. and make a wikitree profile for them.
  2. To make a family tree including all Regan, Ragan, or Reagan who ever lived in County Cork, and connect that tree to the Global family tree on Wikitree.
  3. To find the origins of the Regan, Ragan, or Reagan of County Cork, likely old Gaelic tribes and clans, and connect our County Cork Harrington families to any earlier Regan, Ragan, or Reagan in County Cork or where ever they may have lived in Ireland.
  4. To determine if the name is an Anglicized Gaelic name or one borrowed or inherited from their English cousins.
  5. To determine exactly when and why the Regan, Ragan, or Reagan families came to County Cork.

Right now this project just has one member, me. I am Sharon Troy Centanne. This is my great aunt Hannah Burke Regan's married name, and she immigrated to Boston and later sponsored my grandmother to immigrate to the states. So I am especially interested in Regan, Ragan, or Reagan Family research! I am concentrating on the Regan, Ragan, or Reagan family from Ireland, as this is the birthplace of my Aunt Hannah Burke who married Daniel Regan. She was born at Lough Hyne just south of Skibbereen.
