My father's name was Patrick NEILAND. He migrated from Ireland (Co Limerick) to Australia. His parents were Joseph NEILAND and Mary NEILAND (MALONE) I am one of nine children, and we are the only NEILAND's in Australia. I have only just begun to trace our family tree. Perhaps you could give me some pointers. You are right, it is hard to find the name NEILAND. Often it is spelt NEILAN. I have been checking this site and you are one of the few people who actually referred your family back to Ireland. Excuse me, but I really have no idea what I am doing and was hoping you might be some kind of expert and be able to shed some light on the subject. My father never told us much about Ireland as he (Along with many other's, I'm sure)wanted to flee from the troubles there. All I know is that we do have some relatives in Canada, but at this stage I have been unable to trace these people either. Anyway, If all else fails at least we can say gidday.
