Donal Cassidy Hi John, I am Siobhan McCreesh, I believe we are cousins. Have you checked out the McCreesh family tree yet?

John Anthony Griffin Hi Siobhan,
We are 2nd cousins. Yes, I have also joined the McCreesh Website and have invited Pauline to join my site. In a few minutes I'll be extending an invitation to yourself and Donal.
My mother, Anna Griffin (nee Quinn), was the daughter of your great-aunt Mary McCreesh.
Finding a McCreesh Website is one of the biggest breaks I've had since getting involved in setting up a Griffin/Quinn family tree. My mother told me almost nothing about the McCreesh family, or of her family generally, and, as a result, I've had to do alot of digging.
It's the Griffin and Quinn branches that need attention now. The McCreesh and Begley lines, the ones I knew least about at the outset, have proved to be relatively straight forward and well researched.

John Anthony Griffin Hi Aine,
There sure is! You're my 3rd cousin. Your father, Oweney, and my Dad were 2nd cousins. Joe Griffin was my uncle. I've sent you the details in a message welcoming you to the site.

Declan McCreesh Hi John, I spoken to you on facebook about the McCreesh's and am currently adding in my family details. It was interesting to see all the detail you had on the McShane/McCreesh (Drumlougher/Annamare) families. Trying now to get some details on the McCreesh's from my Dad's side (Aughanduff/Mullaghbawn area). Some of my cousins in Ireland have already done some work and will hopefully come through with some goodies.

John Anthony Griffin Hi Kerry,
It is remote but once there is one link there is a high likelihood of other matches. I've been doing research on my family for several years. The genealogical sites on the internet have made research much easier.

James McGrane Hello John,
Just added a few Quinns to the McGrane site on my Mother's side (Connelly) back to great, great grandparents. It also turns out the Hagans directly related to my Mother come from Leitrim and not Sligo although I think some Hagans do live their. My brother John found the information. Again, thank you for all your help and I hope you find this information useful. It might even open up a few more connections between our families.
