John Carroll and Catherine Muthall

I'm trying to determine if my ancestor, John Carroll (son immigrated to Lowell, MA, USA), is the same person who married Catherine Muthall and moved from Wolfhill, Ballyadams, Laois County to Maryborough.  My brother's DNA is listed on the free GEDMATCH.COM website as kit # A834397.

If you are related to this Carroll family and match my brother's DNA on Gedmatch.com, please contact me!  Thanks, Joanne Carroll

  • Hello Joanne, you may find it easier using the Gedmatch on Facebook, there are a lot of genealogy pages there some even to specific counties or even parts of counties, there is the Irish DNA page, Irish Surnames and probably a Laois Genealogy page too or even more of them, Maryborough is now Portlaoise, from 1921 which was in Queens County now Laois, all changes post indepencence in 1921. 

    The FB pages have a matching tool using Gedmatch, read and follow instuctions carefully but they are helpful as I needed help myself, they do not work on phones or I think tablets, only a ;aptop or computer but you can ask some on to run it for you, my experience the pages are very well moderated and no nonsense tolerated.

    Good Luck
