I have spent a great deal of time and money on this research. Research involves travel and many expenses.

My family treeI have been researching my family tree since 1984, though really this started in 1983 when I started researching the history of the Thomond motor car that my grandfather built.
I have a large amount of material still offline. Over the next few years I will transfer all this information onto this site. It may take me a further 10 years to put all my information online onto this website.
How to read my narrative family trees: The format I am using is a hypertext version of the Burke's Peerage narrative format. Basically, to move around the tree you click on the names in bold.
Ones that are only partially online are marked in green. The others are fully online.

"I will stop now - my death is hurrying near
now that the warriors of the Laune, Lein and Lee are destroyed;
I will follow the beloved among heroes to the grave,
those princes under whom were my ancestors before the death of Christ."
