Focusing on Early Family Stories
Already as a young child I was fascinated by the stories passed down by my Nolan ancestors and wondered about my relatives left behind in Ireland those many years ago. Over the years I have made much progress in researching my own family's roots and, as early as 1997, started putting together resources which would help other Nolans discover their own family roots and possible linkages to other known families.
There are many websites dealing with Nolan family research but, none to my knowledge, which attempt to clarify early Nolan family history and any links which might exist between the various branches of Nolans. This website is my humble attempt at filling this void, providing to the Nolan family researcher:
- information about early Nolan Family History in Ireland
- information on the early presence/settlement of Nolans around the world in the form of a searchable database of Family Stories
- transcriptions and pictures of Nolan tombstones, predominantly in Ireland, organized into a searchable database of Nolan Memorials
- the opportunity, via BLOG Pages, to submit, review and refine information with other family researchers for possible publication in the clan newsletter, in the website's main pages or in a possible eventual book dealing with early Nolan family history and worldwide presence
- the opportunity to submit information directly to the websmaster
- my Vision for worldwide Nolan family research, renewed kinship and fellowship
- information on the worldwide modern-day Nolan Clan and its activities
- online versions of all Nolan Clan Newsletters (1996 to present) NOTE: You can subscribe to receive a free electronic version via Email
- information on the Nolan Clan's modest Publications effort
- a Links page pointing to websites of interest to Nolan family researchers; this should be of interest to both novice and veteran researchers
The website's main resources may also be accessed by clicking on the thumbnail images located along the bottom of the page.
