Introduction

My first try at finding some information on my family tree was in the 80's on the old UseNet groups. There wasn't much out there yet and I rarely saw any mention of any of my surnames. I registered on an early version of the RootsWeb lists that was sent out periodically and just listed surname, dates, and locations. I never heard anything back from that!

I tried again in the late 90's and had some success. My original quest was for information on my great-great-grandfather Timothy Creeden. All I knew was that he came from Ireland and was born in County Cork. I still don't know a whole lot about him, but that search has led to finding out so much more about my family tree.

I have a website with some information on my family tree at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~creeden/

I'm planning on posting here as I continue my quest for the missing links in my tree!
