My name is Tom Horan. I live in Mountain View, California near San Francisco. I'm that second cousin that Jeanne Garibaldi mentioned in her prior e-mail (Hi Jeanne!). Until now, I've focused my efforts on our family history beginning around the 1850-60's in the U.S. (about the time that our great grandfather Matthew Horan and great grandmother Catherine O'Brien immigrated to the U.S. and settled in Illinois), but I'm now getting ready to switch my focus to Ireland. If you don't mind, I would also like to see those Horan family history notes that you mentioned. It seems like it could be a great first step in pursuing a very interesting, and possibly shared, family story.
