Extracts from Ireland – These Contain Parrs and Their Family Connections

Helen and Larry Mitchell visited Ireland back in 1991. They came back with several pages of information they had gleaned from the different sources while they were there. Each source is clearly stated and Helen noted the following: “We transcribed the names just as exactly as we can – as they appear in the registers.” Also, you will see that Helen’s side notes are in bold red text.
