The Long Family Tree

  Long Family. Dublin. Year 2012

Family History

The history of this family Tree, Began in 1989. I spoke to my Father Joe Long, who told me a few stories about his life in Cork as a young man. And my Mother Anne Tomsett of her time in "Hiltonville" in Rathmines,Dublin. That started a chain of events that has seen me Study Geneology and trace my Family Tree back to 1608.


Who built the world, the Irish of course. I have looked at a lot of Geneology Websites and most if not all their earliest decendents came from Ireland. And mine were no different. The Irish paved the way for future Generations to follow, they dug the road's they built the bridges, they built the Sky Scrapers, they all payed there way, some even payed with there Live's.


I would like to take this opportunity to invite you to probe through my Family tree, their are many Skeletons there, but Alas no Money.
