This  is a personal not-for-profit grassroots website first created  in 2004  initially to provide information to the world on the burgeoning modern-day Nolan Clan family association founded in Ireland in 1995.

Over time, the website has evolved and now its prime focus is on the Clan’s third goal, namely “to create and maintain, for current and future generations, an archive of historical and anecdotal information of interest to Nolans everywhere” bringing together in one place easy-to-use information resources to help current and future generations of Nolans  gain a better understanding of their Nolan ancestry and also to help them break down brick walls in their family research.

In support of this aim, Nolan descendants from around the world are invited to:

Besides its primary role as a historical archive for the Nolans of the world, this website also serves as a landing spot on the Internet for the Nolan Clan family association founded in 1995. However, since 2017 communication to the world about clan activities and upcoming events, such as the biannual Clan Gatherings, has moved to the “Clan O’Nolan” Facebook Group.  

Also, since 2017, the genealogical discussion forum formerly hosted at this website has been moved to a new platform, the “NolanFamilies” History and Brick Wall Discussion Group at the Groups.IO website.

One thought on “About”

  1. Greetings Roger,

    I stumbled across this website while searching my family ancestry. This is a great site and I hope to read all of your information. I have traced my roots back to Pierce Noland of Mayo Ireland, born 1654 in Mayo Ireland and died in 1754 in Stafford County Virginia. Somewhere in the early 1800s my family changed the spelling of the name to Nolen and most all of my family is from Fountain County, Indiana. Once again, I hope to enjoy your site and please pass along and interesting information. Thanks and stay safe.
