Thread Name: Irish surname pronunciation
Subject: RE: Irish surname pronounciation
Mickey Joe,
I have not been able to find out, yet, just where in Cork they lived before crossing the Atlantic. I hve been able to track them (as well as Patrick Giblin) back through the U.S. Census records to that of 1880. That's how I know when they arrived in the U.S. However, the Census only asked Country of birth, not the particular town or village.
Someday, when I have the time, I plan on visiting their old parishes in northeast PA to see if I can find any mention of their Irish origins.
