Twigs on the Tree!

800 year oak@Charleville 2


This is a blog about my genealogy journey.  “Twigs on the Tree” is the phrase my mother would say when I would would tell her about finding new family members.  So Mom this blog is for you!

This tree has a very special meaning for my genealogy journey.  This is the “King Tree from Charleville Castle in Tullamore County Offaly Ireland.  My dad’s ancestors – the Neville family were stone masons that moved to Tullamore in 1799 to help build the castle.  This oak tree is between 400 and 800 years old!  I am not back that far with my family history, but I just keep trying.
