Welcome to "Irish" genealogy!

I have given you some links below that may help you. What I have found is that there were no Larkins or Callaghans in Boston in 1851 (the year of Griffith's Valuation), so they must have moved there sometime later. The following links may tell you where they came from. See if any names look familiar to you. Irish repeated names in families.

The following link will show the inhabitants of Boston in 1851:
