A Hundred Thousand Welcomes to our Site.
The Irish began to settle in Southern New England before the Revolutionary War, but it was not until the time of
the Great Famine that the presence of the Irish became significant in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. In the mill
towns and cities of Southern New England, the Irish found a new home and settled in with their families. Family
and neighbors from the old country came to be with them and made this their home also.
Some stayed for a short time and then moved on to establish homes
As we searched for our own Irish ancestors in Southern New England, and tried to learn their stories, we were
disappointed and frustrated that we had no place of our own to go, to share our
successes and learn of how others -
our families' neighbors - were faring. In fact, we could not often find our neighbors amidst the crowd. This is our
attempt to re-create the neighborhood - a place we can all return to time and again, a place where we can be assured
of finding our family and friends, a place where we can begin, and continue, to learn their stories.
We hope you enjoy your visit in the Irish neighborhood of Southern New England.
Come often and stay long... and bring the Family!
is a an on-going venture. We will be adding to it on a regular basis, and,

may be some individuals listed on the site who are NOT of Irish
heritage, although the name(s) may indicate a potential to be
so. Many surnames can be ascribed to more than one ethnicity. We have
deliberately chosen to provide more, rather than less, if there was some
ambiguity. We do not state, intend or infer that we have done any genealogical
research or verification in connection with the individuals in these
except as otherwise specifically stated. This site is intended only as a guide
