Hi to Donegal researchers,

My interests are McCONNOR, CONNOR and McNAUGHER, Drumhaggart Townland, Parish of Burt, Donegal.

Through a misunderstanding of Gaelic by English clerks the original name of McCONNOR became corrupted to McNAUGHER. I would like any information on McCONNOR, CONNOR before the 1840's in the above area (also Muff Parish and Upper and Lower Fahan and Inch). The names seemed to change about this time with some of my ancestors using both variants.

BEATTIE/BEATTY is another interest in Burt. My great grandparents died  young before 1901 and I would like to be able to locate the names of my grandmother's brothers. The children were brought up by various people of whom I know only a few.
