Justin, I hope your research regarding your immediate family is progressing, and that you have been able to meet with some of them. Have you been researching further back into your Devlin family line? One of the research tools that genealogists use to expand their family history is DNA testing. Fathers pass their Y-DNA down to their sons, who then pass it down to their sons, and so on, and so on. Males take a Y-DNA test, with the hopes of matching test results with other members. There are 20 Devlins who have tested at Family Tree DNA. I have started the Devlin DNA Surname group, within Family Tree DNA, and 7 of those 20 Devlins have joined, in order to get all the Devlin results posted on the same page. If you have an interest, I would be happy to give you more information.
