Please Note: Darren is no longer accepting genealogical commissions on this website.

However, I am keeping this website up to promote my books and the history of my McGettigan family. I also hope to have a new book published soon.

There is also a year's worth of genealogy blog entries on my website ~ feel free to explore them ~ I enjoyed writing them and they were quite popular.

    Greetings. As a McLaughlin I am fascinated by your research! I am a starter genealogist and can't trace my family through Ireland any further than their departure from Londonderry on the Bolton Abbey. Thank you for a peek into the possibilities!

    Would you be kind enough to recommend a genealogist with whom I may work via internet? (I am loacted in the U.S.) My McCabe hails from Binbane, Meenacahan, Inver Parish, Donegal and married a McGettigan. Someone who is familiar with genetic genealogy would be a help as I have results that the primary surnames associated with the tests are Brady and Burns. If this is in fact a non-paternity event, it would have taken place earliest in 1500 AD. Many thanks - Merrick McCabe
    P.S. I am looking forward to reading our books.

    I have proof by armarial bearings that my family is decended from Dermot McMurrough.

    I am trying to do my family tree and have hit a barrier. We have traced the family back 6 generations to my 5 x great grandfather who was born in 1779 and died in Dublin in Blackrock 1852. I need to fill in the gap between this ancester and Dermot McMurrough and am finding it very difficult because of the way Irish names are spelt in various ways.

    I know Dermot's son is called Donald (or the Irish equivalent) but can't find any of his descendants. I wonder if you can point me in the right direction.

    Thanks for the website. I found you page on the history of the O'tooles very easy to read. I have just read about the connection on my family to Mullaghmast. I am only looking into my family name origins at the moment.We are 2nd generations Scots (Glasgow). Granddad was Dublin Irish. Thank you again for the info. James Otoole. Leeds Yorkshire.
