I am in search of documented ancestral line of Olivers from Lislane and or Londonderry area who left their home land for the Americas around 1799 - 1800.  We have DNA results connecting our American Olivers to their Irish forefathers unfortunately, we do not have documented departures or arrivals nor - more importantly, given names for the head of family and his wife.   

Though many decades have  I been searching for ancestors, I feel the more Novice as the search gets further from my own locale in NW Ohio, USA.  This I know: yDNA markers give me the potential for ancestors in Londonderry, Ireland and Ayershire, Scotland.  Circumstantially; the males Christian names in my family repeat generation upon generation .... Samuel, James, John, William, etc.  The arrived in the Colonies of America, possibly Boston, prior to 1750, as at least .
     
     Their is some DNA and research notes that indicate a strong possibility the the Lislane, Balteagh, Londonderry OLIVERs are related, however, the connercting Heads for the connection are missing.

     Among these posting there is mention of a Brian Mitchell of Derry Genealogical Centre did some research on the Lislane, Balteagh, Londonderry Family.  If at all possible, I would enjoy making contact with this Gentleman.

     In addition, I would enjoy contact with anyone who has knowledge of this/these branches of OLIVERs.

     I would certainly be pleased to share any research information that I do have.

     Respectfully,
     Liam, aka Bill
