Welcome, everyone!! Thank you for visiting my site. I am known around here as EireLady.  I try to work on my genealogy whenever possible.  Genealogy is a never-ending, so this site will be updated as often as possible.

So please, sit back, relax, and browse through my homepage.  I would appreciate that before you leave, you take the time to sign my guestbook.  Enjoy your visit.  EireLady


Our Ancestors and the
United States of America

Most of our ancestors gave up nearly everything and left the people they were closest to back in their homeland.  Their intent was to find a better life and hoped that this great country of ours would provide it.  I am a firm believer that we should learn from history so that we do not repeat past mistakes.  Genealogical research is a way to learn of our heritage.  Furthermore, we should remember where we came from so that our ancestors’ sacrifices will not be forgotten.  Let us not forget the words of our founding fathers: 

“We hold these truths to be self-evident:  That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”  The Declaration of Independence, 4 July 1776 


My Irish Line

My earliest immigrant ancestors came from the Emerald Isles.  They are my most elusive & hardest to trace ancestors.  I have marriage & naturalization records for some along with birth, baptism, marriage, & death records for their first-borns...All stating they were from Ireland, but no counties or parishes are listed.


*  Irish Locations:  Unknown 

*  CT Locations:  Norwalk, Bridgeport, Shelton, and Trumbull 

*  FL Locations:  Jacksonville

My Polish Line

With the help of my local FHC, I have been able to trace one of my Polish lines back to the mid-1700s, in other words my GGGGG(yes 5th G)grandparents who were living in the town of Sompolno. We found a cousin in California who is also doing research and will be adding more information on the LISZEWSKI, later LASS line as it is verified.  I am also researching a connected family from Tarnowiec for another cousin. 


*  Polish towns include: Sompolno, Jozefowo, Bialystok, Łodz, Tarnowiec 

*  Russian town:  Zoltki (Bialystok) 

*  CT towns: Bridgeport, Stratfield, Stratford, Fairfield, Trumbull 

*  SC towns:  Greenville, Taylors

My Heritage

The U.S.A. has been known as a melting pot of nations.  Today’s citizens can trace their ancestry to any of the four corners of the planet. My ancestors come from Ireland, Hungary, Portugal, the Azores, Poland, & depending on the times also Russia.  We have since then settled in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, later California & this generation has further diversified to South Carolina & Florida.


My Hungarian Line

My Hungarian side came over at the beginning of this century. As a result, my dad grew up in the Hungarian section of the city, though the language is no longer spoken in my family, this is one of our strongest connections.  To this day, two of the few ethnic foods I eat comes from this line, a type of soup noodle that I make my mom buy & mail to me from CT (my mom was once shown how to make it, but it is too time consuming) and a type of stuffing that even I will make for holidays.  My mom will also make the same Hungarian pastry for most get-togethers

*  Surnames include:  DEMKO, OROSZ, OROSZKA, SZABO

*  Towns in Borsod-Abauj-Zemblen:  Csaba (also known as Hejocsaba) and Rudabanya

*  Towns in Abauj Torna:  Szanto

*  CT Locations:  Bridgeport, Fairfield, Monroe


My Portuguese Line

My Portuguese also stepped on these shores less than 100 years ago.  They originally settled in New Bedford , MA and later spread to Connecticut.  The Pinheiro’s anglicized their name to Pinero, while the Pereira’s changed to Perry.


*  Portuguese town:  Lisboa (Lisbon)

*  Sao Miguel, Açores (St. Michael, Azores) towns:  Agua de Pau, Capelas

*  MA towns:  New Bedford, Fall River

*  CT towns:  Fairfield, Bridgeport, Trumbull, Monroe

*  RI towns:  Bristol
