Brian on “Welcome to the New Hanifin Genealogy Site and Forum”


As we near the 10th anniversary of the forum (and the 12th anniversary of the site), I am proud to reveal the new and improved Hanifin Family Genealogy site! The revamped site is far easier to update, and less vulnerable to junk mail senders (aka spammers).

Please ask you questions here, as you are more likely to get your questions answered if you post them here than if you send them directly to me. [:-)]

This is also a great place to share your family stories and history! I hope you find this forum helpful!

My father made mention of a great grand unce of his called Tadhg an ”r (Tadhg of the gold) who returned to Kerry from America with gold he had prospected whilst there and set up a pub in Tralee. He would have been a brother of my great great grand father, John Brosnan of Ballinorig, Tralee (b. 1845 d. 1918) Is this the same Tadgh as is referenced in your family tree?
