My name is Darren Ó Ceallaigh
and I started this site.
This site was created using MyHeritage.com. This is a great system that allows anyone like you and me to create a private site for their family, build their family tree and share family photos. If you have any comments or feedback about this site, please click here to contact me.
At the end of this process I hope to have a booklet ready with a small profile of everyone in the family tree, pictures of them and pictures of the time and places they lived. I also hope to put in the meanings of our surnames, where they came from and the Irish original version of them, as most of the surnames in the tree are of Irish origin.
Our family tree is posted online on this site! There are 227 names in our family site. The earliest event is the birth of Mr Barry
(1685). The most recent event is the birth of <Private> Barton
(Mar 5 2013).
The site was last updated on Dec 5 2013, and it currently has 22 registered member(s). If you wish to become a member too, please click here. Enjoy!
Credit must go to my Uncle Kieran Kelly who did a lot of the research for this tree in 1996 and this has been a great help in putting this website together. He titled his research 'The Kelly's of Ballygillan 1700-1800's'. This is a fantastic piece of work as it was all mapped out on pen and paper (long before computers were widely available).
The websites I am using are as follows;

The following website was put together by a friend of mine, it's a fantastic resource on how to do research;
