Deese Genes Have Irish Eyes March 17, 2016
This Site is a Member of

This site is dedicated to my little leprechaun mother Bridget Walsh Deese RIP of Gorthbawn County Mayo who inspired my love of Ireland

The Real Star of County Down

Although my father's family from North Carolina and my mother's family from Castlebar-Westport area towns and villages of County Mayo Ireland are represented on this web page I have added thousands of names from many records to my web page; that have no link to either family but hopefully will provide others researching their families with needed information. Some people have sent me data to add so if you wish to make add a database email me I am always willing to try and help fellow researchers so feel free to email me and Thank you for visiting
