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 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 on the left. This website also holds information on a large number of families connected to ours by marriage. Information on the main connected families may be seen by clicking on Connected Families on the panel on the left. Also available on this site are indexes to the approximately 18,000 individuals and 2,000 surnames in all my family trees. Click on All Families on the left for these indexes.
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 the report for living people.
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.
