and former Vice President,
and his Irish Finnegan Ancestors.
January 2021 a new President and Vice President were
inaugurated in the United States of America.
This search to verify the then Vice
President Joe Bidens's County Louth ancestors is now
divided into sections for more easy reading.
Initially the research was to establish if his
ancestors were from County Louth, Ireland. But
during the course of that research it was found that a
number of people from County Louth, and in particular
the Cooley area, emigrated to around the Seneca
County area of New York, USA.
Note that a standard form of the surnames are used
where possible except in the original sources.
