Has anyone done Michael Collins family tree and is there a website on it?

Yes, they have. You can refer to the added link, for a referenced website on Michael Collins' family tree.

Although Collins never married or had any children, before he was assassinated, he was one of 8 children. Children or Grandchildren of his nieces and nephews are still alive, today.

*The family tree linked by the earlier answerer is only tangentially connected. No good comprehensive ancestry for both Michael Collins' paternal and maternal lines is readily available online.

How can you find the history of an Irish family?

For detailed information on your search for Irish roots, check out The Irish Ancestral Research Association (TIARA) Web site. It provides a more extensive list of links and additional information for your ancestral search. These links include tutorials on genealogy, national resources, maps, history, culture, clan associations and emigration and old passenger lists.

I do not have an answer to the question, but I do have something to ask her. I was given up for adoption 16 years ago, and my birth mother's maiden name is Molly M Finney. I have been looking for my birth mom for a long time. When you email me back I will give you more information. Please email me.

How do you know if you're Egyptian?

There is no way to know for sure, without knowing your family's history or having some sort of documentation that is verifiable.

For example, knowing wither you parents or grandparents were Egyptian.

If you were adopted or an orphan, you are dependent upon some outside source to let you know your true heritage or national origin.

The skin color of someone who is truly Egyptian is similar to the skin color of many people from middle eastern counties, so that would not be an accurate gauge of true nationality.

Dialects clues are also not an accurate gauge of true nationality, since dialects are environmentally controlled.

Facial features can only narrow down the possibilities, but again are not a accurate gauge due to possible intermarriage over the centuries.

Only an outside source or family history can let you know if you are truly Egyptian.

Is there a Savalas family website?

---- Excellent response. I have been trying to figure out what a "Savalas" is for decades. Is it from Fotos Tzavelas, son of Hellenic icon Lambros Tzavelas, who himself was a Greek patriot, backgammon champion and distant great-great-great-great-great-great-grandfather of TV star Telly Savalas? Fotos' 1814 murder at the historic "Mavros Gatos" ('Le Chat Noir' or 'Black Cat') cafe after triple-gammoning the proud Ali Pasha was the incident that began the Greek struggle for independence. Perhaps the answer can be found in reading about the heroic life of Kitsos Tzavelas, Greek fighter and Prime Minister? Tzavelas was born in Souli, Epirus in 1800, the son of Fotos Tzavelas and grandson of Lambros Tzavelas, both of whom were famous for their roles in the Souliot struggles against Ali Pasha, the Turkish governor of Epirus. He grew up in exile in Kerkyra. Tzavelas played a leading role in the Greek War of Independence in 1821, distinguishing himself especially during the siege of Messolonghi. After the arrival in Greece of Ioannis Kapodistrias, during the latter part of the war, Tzavelas was responsible for liberating a large part of Central Greece. After indepedence, Tzavelas became a supporter of Kapodistria and eventually a leader in the Russian Party which was the conservative and arch-Orthodox political faction in the period of King Otto. Accused of planning a revolt against the king in 1834, Tzavelas was imprisoned by the Regency Council head by von Armansperg along with other politicians of the Russian Party. When King Otto reached the age of majority and took over the reigns of government, Tzavelas was released and later was named aide-de-camp to the king. He was subsequently appointed Minister of War in 1844 and, in 1847-1848, Prime Minister. Kitsos Tzavelas died on March 21, 1855. Generations later, while becoming United States citizens in the early 1900's via Ellis Island, the family name, 'Tsavelas' (and the variant 'Tsavalas' - it doesn't really translate well into English) was simplified to 'Savalas'. The offspring of that American lineage includes Decorated Soldiers, Diplomats, Architects, Producers, Doctors, Teachers, Artists, etc., and, of course, Actors. The official Savalas family website is at: http://savalas.tv - if you'd like more information, please contact me using the contact area there. Until I hear from you, I remain, Sincerely, Nicholas Savalas - http://savalas.tv

How do you summon a deceased relative?

Hold a seance ... ____________________ OR...you could not do it. There is no way to guarentee that it is the relative you are looking for that is coming across. You could be opening a door to all sorts of nastiness. Hopefully, this realitive crossed over and is happy where they are and can't be summoned. Take heart, and know that your realitive loved you and is happy now in the light.

What are some characteristics that make someone the best wife in the world?

The things that I love most about my wife are… She never knows when I am joking…or at least makes me believe she doesn't know. She listens to me talk for hours without getting bored or at least appearing bored. She is the most patient person I now. You can only imagine why. She always sees the best in others. She always brings out the best in others…even me. She tolerates me…just the way I am. She never tries to change me….although she has. She never wants anything, never asks for anything. She is always content in whatever state she is in. She is never moody, never crumpy; never angry...she's always the same. She always looks so pretty. She has never had even a single bad hair day! She is not only my best friend and lover; she is the mother of our four wonderful children. I think that the greatest gift a woman could ever giver her man…is children. They all look like her, share her gifts, traits and personality. I see her in each of them. We have traveled the world together. We have seen it all and done it all. We have friends we call family in more than 100 nations of the world. She fit in as though naturally with every culture, every personality. She appeared to speak their language, to know their hearts. She made the world seem like a much better, peaceful place….just because she was there.

Where can you find your family history?

With family history, you always begin with yourself and work your way backwards. Write down everything you know and organize it then write down questions for which you are seeking answers. Next, visit, call or write to your oldest living relatives and ask the questions.

When you have exhausted all home and close family resources, visit or write to the library, archives or churches in the areas where your family lived. If you have no idea, get birth/marriage/death records and extract the pertinent information to set you in the right direction.

The Internet is also a great resource. Use Google to search for your ancestors' names and locations. There are commercial sites such as Ancestry.com and free sites such as WikiTree.com.

Family research is all about being a detective. Listen and search for the clues to keep you moving in the right direction.

Most families do not have a history ready and waiting in some library somewhere for you to ask for it. You have to do the research and put it together yourself.
