Hello, and welcome to my genealogy website. My name is Helen O'Connor. I was born in Ireland, am currently living in the UK, and since 2002 have been researching my family history along with that of my husband, Joe Gordon. The information on this site is what I have come up with so far, thanks to help from close family, visitors to this site and online resources. I am most grateful to everyone who has shared their information
The families directly related ancestrally to me or Joe are from nine Irish counties: Carlow, Cork, Dublin, Kerry, Leitrim, Limerick, Roscommon, Sligo and Tipperary. Unfortunately, little information is available on some families, although I continue to make progress on most.
You will find an ancestry chart of our basic family tree by clicking on Our Family Tree on the panel on the left. For a detailed narrative account of each family in this tree, please click on one of the surnames below. This website also holds information on a very large number of families who are connected to us by marriage or who I believe, but cannot prove, are related to us. For indexes to the approximately 20,000 individuals and 3,000 surnames in all of my family trees please click on All Families on the left.
Please note that, in order to protect the privacy of living persons, their names are not shown on this website. However, if you are a family member, no matter how distant, and would like to know the names of the living, please email Helen@HelensFamilyTrees.com and I will be happy to email you a report, in list form, with the names of living persons included. Note that no dates or place names will be shown in this report.
I do hope you enjoy browsing this site. If you think you can add anything at all to what I have already gathered (names, dates, stories, photos, etc.), I would love to hear from you. Corrections would also be very welcome. Please contact me by sending an email to Helen@HelensFamilyTrees.com. Thank you.
