  1. Hello,
    I am searching for information about my ancestors from County Cork. My grandmother Catherine Corcoran’s grandfather was Patrick Corcoran (1830-1888) born in Millstreet.
    His parents were Will Corcoran and Ellen Brien. Will was baptised 30 Nov 1800 at St Finbarr’s.
    My great grandfather was Patrick’s son John Simon Corcoran.

    I’ll be visiting Millstreet with my wife and 3 teenage sons near the end of June. I would greatly appreciate some local history and to learn about resources for genealogy.

  2. Hello! I am trying to find the place in County Cork that my husband’s ancestors came from. We suspect that it may be from Millstreet. The family lore has the name as O’Riordan. My husband goes by Rardin. We are wondering if anyone with O’Riordan, Reardan, Rardin, Etc. ancestors from Millstreet have done DNA testing and are on Gedmatch? My husband’s Gedmatch # is A827575. His name is Larry Rardin. If you are a match we would love to hear from you! Thank You, Lauren

    1. Hi Lauren,

      You don’t match with our GEDmatch #, but if you use ‘People who match both kits, or 1 of 2 kits’ with our codes it may help separate the local ish people for you. QM3774276 and UB2969359.

      The cMs aren’t very high but you will have some people to contact.



  3. Hi. I’m looking for information on my ancestry. My great grandparents were Thomas Hinchin and Sarah Cremin, from Kanturk and Banteer. Any information would be appreciated. The name changed to Hinchion, Henchin, and the current Heinchon.

    We’re here from San Antonio, Texas.

    1. I would suggest visiting the Catholic Church and the post office in Banteer. There are still Hinchions in the area.

      Good luck!
