Helen's Family Trees

  Last updated 31 August 2015

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, with much help from others. I am very grateful to the many relatives and visitors to this website who have contributed information on their branch of the family tree.

All but one of the families directly related ancestrally to me or Joe are from Ireland, with roots in nine counties: Carlow, Cork, Dublin, Kerry, Leitrim, Limerick, Roscommon, Sligo and Tipperary (the one exception being the Gordon family who came to Ireland from Scotland). Unfortunately, little information is available on some families, although I continue to make progress on most, thanks now mainly to information I receive from visitors to this site.

You will find a chart of our family tree by clicking on Our Family Tree on the panel on the left. For a detailed narrative account of each family in our tree, click on one of the surnames below or on Descendant Reports to the left. This website also holds information on a large number of families connected to ours by marriage, details of several of which are available by clicking on Connected Families on the panel on the left. Also available on this site are indexes to the approximately 12,000 individuals and 1,400 surnames in all our family trees. Click on All Families on the left for these indexes.

I 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.  

Please note that in order to protect the privacy of living persons in my family trees their names will no longer be shown on this website. If you are a family member, however distant, and would like to see a Descendant Report that includes the names of the living, please email Helen@HelensFamilyTrees.com and I will be happy to email you a report with the names of the living included.
