The Egan Family Helpful Links


earching for one's roots can be exciting, fun, complicated, intriguing, and when first beginning, at times can feel overwhelming. Nothing is quite equal to the thrill of stumbling upon an ancestor's name tucked away in a century's old ship's passengers list, record archive, newspaper clipping, or any other number of obscure places. Happy digging, and here's wishing you that all your ancestors have unique names, owned property, registered all their births, deaths, marriages, and none of their records were lost, burned, destroyed, or beamed up!
