O’Connell

 

About the study

It took me over 12 years to find my O'CONNELL line in Ireland, which was one of the reasons I had started researching my family to begin with. After 16 years of research, I have no further information on the family and at this point I doubt I will find more. 

After discussions with a few other O'Connell's, it was decided that we needed to take a different approach to researching the O'Connell lines. We then decided it was time to register the One-Name Study and see if we can group the families together like the yDNA Project is already doing (see below for more details). 

This project will be large and I hope that I am able to encourage others with the O'CONNELL surname to assist with the project.
