I’ve been researching my various families for about twenty years, on and (mostly) off. At this point my information is eclectic, and my family trees incomplete.
I began this blog to share my information and, hopefully, to extend it. Please bear in mind that there may be inaccuracies in some of my data – which, also hopefully, will be corrected with further research or from your input.
If you are connected to any of my clans – or near clans, you are welcome to any of the info that I have, although you must accept it ‘as is’. If you can clarify or deny anything that I’ve done – then please leave a comment.
The family trees and family related files on this site are the result of my own and others’ research. Over the years I have received much assistance from fellow researchers, and from genealogy related web sites. I have made every effort to give due credit, but if I have missed something please accept my apologies and let me know about it.
This is my list of families –
Besso – Holyrood, also Beseau, Besaw, Beeso, and etc…
Dwyer – North Arm, Holyrood – James Dwyer and Mary Hawco married 1818, Harbour Grace
Hynes – Holyrood
Mason – Avondale, was Salmon Cove
Metcalf – Holyrood and probably Topsail
Murphy – Harbour Main; Halfway House, Holyrood
Penney – Holyrood
Walsh – Holyrood, Salmonier Line
Walsh – Harbour Main
Whalen – Wicklow, now Country Path, Holyrood; Chapel’s Cove
The list will evolve as I go through my files. I do quite a bit of reading and typing and editing and html’ing before I post to the blog. Because of this files will appear over a period of time until I get them all done!

Thank you all! Enjoy.
