|About Murphy/O'Hara Family
I have come to the Internet to share the work done on all aspect of my family history. There has been a vast amount of meticulous work done by the late Kevin Kelly on the O’Hara side of the family which is included in this site. All the site information is now shared with web sites from other branches of the family which include Michael Kelly, Dublin, Helen Gordon, of France & England, Niall McCormick also of England and Matthew Blair of New Zealand.
I also hope that the missing Murphy’s and Arnold’s out there will stumble upon us and be reunited after 3-4 generations. To date 01/09/2018 this HAS happened after I did the Ancestry.Com DNA testing. I received a list of distant cousins and sent messages to a random few. Some weeks later Barbara Pollock aka Bonnie Kavicky sent me a message in Ancestry.Com advising me we are related and she would try work out the connection. However, as she sent me a small section of her family tree I could see the connection right away. I could see Catherine Arnold b1865, my Grandmother’s eldest sister, was her Great Grandmother. So the DNA test was worth doing.
Due to a recent mishap I lost quite a lot of work. So I am presently sifting through notes and papers trying to bring things back up to date. Any family member can send a request, as indicated in the website, to access further details. I would ask people not to enter information but e-mail it to me instead in order that I can update my own master record first.
I have uploaded hundreds of photos and received some more form family members. I have arranged the photo section into different family albums for convenience. Might I add ALL DONATIONS ARE VERY WELCOME and that means family information, photos and documents. Any submissions in the form of hard copies will be scanned and returned without delay.
