|About Coughlin Genealogy
Welcome to the Coughlin Genealogy site!
Coughlin history traces roots from Ireland and information here is centered from the life of Jeremiah Coughlin, father of William Montgomery and Grandfather of Jim and Joe Coughlin. Using a journal written by Jere Coughlin, his oldest daughter Mary Theresa(Tesse) began tracing family roots in 1910. Many years later her younger brother Francis Coughlin continued the process visiting churches, cemeteries, and research locations in Canada and in Ireland. Jim Coughlin, William's son continued this process along with Joey Coughlin (Son of Joseph) who drafted notes and information into a 133 page document distributed in the early 2000's to members of those families.
While exploring the Lynch family (Jim's mother's side) He found a cousin Terry Lynch (Son of Bill Lynch) had also taken a keen interest and was developing a genealogy of the Lynch family. Terry was kind enough to share this which traced that family roots back through Ireland and France from the early 1700's A huge thanks to Joey, Terry and Jim for the information presented in a living document now transferred to the web here by Jim's son Monte (James JR)with help from his son (Jim's grandson) Troy who will be the site administrator going forward. The hope is for current and future generations to use, update and share from their own lives.
