Unravelling my McGrath ancestry is a work in progress. Catherine McGrath, my Great Grandmother, married James Gleeson in Silvermines R.C. Parish, County Tipperary, Ireland on 23 February 1876, but Catherine’s ancestry is somewhat murky. I hope to clarify this at some point in the future, but for now, here is what my research has found to date.

  • McGrath DNA Project (Updated November 2023). This document describes my attempts to use autosomal DNA testing to better understand Catherine McGrath’s ancestry.
  • McGrath DNA Matches (Updated November 2023). This chart of McGrath relationships identified through DNA is referenced in the above McGrath DNA Project document.
