This is a Merge Project page.

Many Irish families can trace their lineage back to a particular sept of Irish High Kings, through surname if not generation by generation. The English invasions led to the destruction of specifics to prevent the persecution of Catholics, so generally only surname info is available prior to the 1800s.

Given the destruction of records, it may be impossible to find documented ancestors linking us back to the early High Kings.

Important Note: There are different, sometimes conflicting, sources for the genealogies of the High Kings. See individual profiles for more information. Please respect the work other people have put in, and do NOT remove things without ample discussion.

Naming Conventions

For this project we prefer Gaelic spellings first, followed by English spellings, all separated by /. Keeping in the tradition of the "Big Tree", the surname field is always left blank until surnames are actually used - in Ireland, that would be the eleventh century.1 For example:
Duach Laidrach / Dui Ladrach


List of duplicate copies

Some quick searches of the site, for either of Eochaidh the Heremon, his wife Tea-Tephi / Tamar-Telphi, or the much later Duach Laidrach return a large number of results, each of which MAY represent a separate duplicated line. What's most "fun" about finding these lines is the crazy number of spelling variants each and every name has.
