Will do. Send your email address to guinaneg@yahoo.com and I can send you info directly if you like.

Are you a mathematician? That would be an interesting perspective. The aim I have is to chart the growth and distribution of the family over time and then to extrapolate backward to see where we wind up. Not sure how it will come together yet. I will start by assembling the data and take it from there. The relatively small population of the clan is what makes this interesting (as opposed to O'Brien for example)

By the way - the picture I have of early migration is that the first Guinanes headed to the Toronto area in the early/mid 1800s. They would have departed from Limerick.

By 1900 all the departures were from Cork/Queenstown on steamers. most of these Guinanes headed for Chicago, New York presumably drawn by other family members who had preceded them. The Ellis Is. records show these centres of gravity with Limerick/Kildimo Guinanes heading mostly to NY while the Clare folks headed to Chicago. I have come across some who headed to Pittsburg - I'll keep an eye out for them and let you know.
