Hi Tom,
I guess we are 2nd cousins. My Dad is Vince Fynan; and Herb is his cousin. I don't see your parents too much, but I know of them & my Dad goes to a luncheon with Herb once a month. I've been into this genealogy thing for a few years now, and have hit "roadblocks" as far as the Fynan family is concerned. I found out a lot of info on my Mom's family...but no such luck w/the Fynan's. Really interested in when/why/how Joseph Finan came over fron Ireland...but can't seem to find any info except his marriage certificate which says he's from County Mayo (i think). My Uncle Johnny says he remembers that his parents (Martin & Lena) used to have a shoebox full of letters from Ireland...but he can't remember who they were from or what part of Ireland. And my Dad doesn't remember his parents ever speaking of their ancestors. You probably already know this, but Bill & John Fynan are also into this genealogy...and I got together with Bill to compare notes. However, I probably don't know much more than you already do. But, if you have any add'l info, I'd love to hear from you...or maybe someday we can all get together & compare notes. I have searched the Ellis Island databases & some others trying all variations of the spelling Finan, Fynan, O'Finan, etc...but to no avail. Anyway, it was good to hear from you (even though we've never met)....are u by any chance, Kathy's father? She was a few yrs ahead of me at Holy Cross. Good to hear from you! -Donna
