Hi Pat,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you.

While we have several "John Tierney's" in our database it is impossible to tell if there is any connection to the person you're looking for. The Irish are full of John's Joseph's, Martin's, Peter's, etc. All of which makes research difficult.

You'll have to look for immigration records, ships logs, birth and death certificates, letters, oral stories, etc., to provide more information on where, in Ireland, John Tierney may have come from.

Check the National Archives website, the LDS site, and do message board searches here and on Rootsweb. If your local LDS church or your public library has a class on genealogy they will also be able to help with additional research sites and techniques.

Sorry I can't be of more help at this time.
