McCrohan.net is a community website dedicated to research and discussion
about the McCrohan family name, and the genealogy of its bearers,
whether they be called MacCriomhthainns (in the original Irish) or any
of the many popular anglicisations of the name: McCrohon, McCrohan,
MacCrohan, Mac-Crohan, McCrehin, O'Crohan, MacCrehin and Mac-Crohon (in
Spain), O'Crohon, MacCrohon etc.
While much of the content is available to all visitors, posting messages and replies in the discussion forum (where members discuss their genealogy and help each other research their family trees), the family tree itself and the ability to send messages to other McCrohan.net members are all features that are restricted to registered members. Membership is free, but we do require that applicants provide some information about themselves and their interest in McCrohan genealogy to ensure that our members all share a genuine interest in the subject which brings us together.

O'Crohan Family Reunion
Eileen de Lapp wanted me to share the following message with all of you. If you'd like to respond to Eileen, please click here
I am hoping to visit Madrid in September 2015 to find out more about the family. I do hope that any relatives out there will contact me and put me in touch with the right people.
It will be only a fleeting visit on the way to a Tomas O'Crohan Family Reunion in Dingle on 19th September. There's a genealogy day planned for 20th September, so I hope you will all be able to attend.
I couldn't select a proper 'topic' so "the name" will have to do. I finally got the death date on Mike McCrehin. He was born in New York 1837 and I have been unable to find his parents. Anyhow through the census I found him in Minnesota in 1900 and 1910. In 1910 he was living with a William Hill, his wife and 8 yr. old son. I had spent some time in trying to find a death date for him and it finally came through" Family Search".
He died 9/5/1911 at Beltrami Co., MN. That's where he was in 1910 census. His name was written down as McCueun at Family Search. I know that was him because of the Beltrami Co.. Beltrami is right next to where we live in MN. I went to the courthouse in Bemidji to see the records. His name was down as McCruen. He was accidentally shot by William Hill while William Hill was shooting at a bear. We walked through the cemetery he must have been buried at, a township cemetery, but found no marker. He wasn't listed in the cemetery listing either. Part of a mystery is solved.

Although we can't vouch for its veracity, the following extract from "Memory Cups of Panhandle Pioneers" (Clarendon Press, 1945) has a page on the McCrohans of New Mexico and Texas.. Thanks to Trevor Trimmer for spotting this and sharing.
Eileen writes "I recently received an email from a Jane, stating that her father was Thomas F Crohan
(O’Crohan) and his father was Thomas T. Crohan (O’Crohan) the son that went to
America and his father was Tomas
O’Crohan (The Islandman). "
Working through my backlog of documents to post, and came across the following documents contributed by John McCrohan of Renard (again). John mentions in his email that he received them from Inés in Buenos Aires, a descendent of Don José.
Unfortunately for some of us, the documents are in Spanish only, so it would be great if there's anyone out there with the appropriate language skills who could translate these to English one day.
Publicity featuring Valentia Island, Renard Point etc
With thanks to John McCrohan of Renard, County Kerry in Ireland for requesting a copy of this short publicity slot from Guinness, and sharing it with us. This 4 megabyte film is of interest here, because it features background images of the Irish McCrohan heartland.
To further put the film in context, I'm copying a short article from "The Kingdom" newspaper, which was published September 15, 2005.
I'm delighted to say that the photo gallery is back in action. See link on the left to "Photo Gallery". As I don't have as much time to tend to McCrohan.net as I used to, I had to disable the photo gallery some time back when upgrading ..
