Genealogical and Historical Research Service in County Louth, Ireland - Joe Biden ancestors


Dividing Line

US  President  and  former  Vice  President,
 Joe  Biden,
and  his  Irish  Finnegan  Ancestors.

On 20 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.
