Thank you for your response.
Out of curiosity, where do youi live?
I am in Spring, Texas, USA.
I would love to learn more about the Solan's. They have been hard to find. I would love to knkow the Solan's that remained in Ireland, as I am sure some did from the 1901 and 1911 Census records you pointed out above.
Where did your Gr-Uncle live and where was he born?
My Great great grandfather Thomas Solan, as you can see from my original post, was born in 1836. On his baptismal record, there are Solan's that were godparents. I am sure they were siblings, or aunts and uncles to Thomas' father Lawrence. I have not been able, at this time to learn, who is who, much less their children etc.....
I would love to know where the Solan's came from before Tynagh Parish, Co. Galway. Your reply above seems to get me closer, or narrow it down to the Townland, unless the moved a little bit.
Do you know how long your Solan's were in the Ballyglass location?
Have you DNA tested?
I have through FTDNA and Ancestry, and my results have been uploaded to Gedmatch. My Gedmatch kit number is T220529 under TexasKat (my husband named it). This is in case you have. If you have, I would love to have you Gedmatch number to view. I know that Autosomal DNA tests usually only go back about 5 generations, but if we even matched a tiny bit within that 5 generations, it would show. At least we could learn from it and help with our research into that surname of ours. So far, I have not come across anyone with that surname who have tested, or female descendants (different surnames through marriage :) ).
