My Irish Research

  • Sharon Troy Centanne - Irish Genealogical Research Instructor since 1982. My interest in County Cork stems from my grandparents who were my Irish immigrant ancestors. I have studied County Cork for 40 years because I knew my County Cork grandparents and my family never lost contact with family in Cork. I have been blessed to have received ancestral information and family stories from living family members who visited Ireland. I am working on researching the 1901 and 1911 Census and adding profiles and surnames to geographic locations to help people find where in County Cork their ancestors originated, and trying to match names with people in the Roman Catholic Church Records, especially in West Cork (Ballyoughtra, Ballyisland, Ardagh, and Heir Island townlands, also Tullagh, Creagh, Castlehaven, Aughadown South, and Abbeystrowry Parishes/DEDs) and North Cork (Monananig, Ballyroberts, Top Cross , Peafield, and Riesk townlands and Rathcormack, Templebodan, and Lisgoold Civil Parishes/DED.

Hi Sharon,

My name is Jos, and I am contacting you because you are researching a tree for the Bulman line.

I have information for you...I would like information from you.

Hi Sharon,

I'm glad to see you're writing high quality biographies with sources. But it also looks like you're creating hundreds of new profiles without filling in the location fields. This can cause a lot of problems for researchers, and other WikiTreers. For instance, it makes it very difficult and time consuming for people working on lineages with similar names to check for duplicates.

If you could at least put Ireland, and even country level information when you have it, it will make searching and indexing better for everyone, and improve the tree immensely.

Re: Butler/ Redman, Meade Families. Hi Sharon, last night someone created a bunch of duplicates of this family. I merged them all. If I missed any, please let me know (-:

Hello Sharon

My ancestors came from Co Cork and I see you have collated information on them. Catherine Burke, Hart, Connelly was my great great grandmother. I have been tracing my family tree and am happy to share any information with you.

Thank you for your thank you. Do you have a connection to William the Marshall? Jennifer

I doubt it Jennifer Lapham unless my Irish uncle has him in his inlaws. Merry Christmas!

Hi Sharon, was updating my tree and your Mary Ahern (1896) popped up. My great grandmother is Mary Jane Ahern (abt. 1/26/1897-1945), wife of John Columbus Swatsenbarg, possibly married 1910 in CA. and had 13 children (or more) She is of Irish/English decent. Don't want to create a duplicate profile or should I?
posted by Sue Dawson
Thanks. I do not know of any Aherns who went to California. My Aherns stayed in Ireland but maybe their cousins went to the USA?
posted by Sharon (Troy) Centanne
Hi Sharon, My good friend lived in the Boston area...He was John Ahern and he passes away in 2018. His father emigrated from Ireland before WWI. I know this because he was a talented Irish singer, and he used his talent as a singer to enlist in the US Army and eventually become a citizen.

I think that his name was Jimmy Ahern, and he released a number of albums in Ireland before come to the United States.
