Joyce Flax Growers – Ireland 1796

Jan 1st, 1796 | By | Category: Joyce Family Timeline

From Dennis Joyce –

FYI, I transcribed Joyces from this website that is arrayed by Ireland’s Counties in 1796.  Needless to say majority are in Galway and Mayo.  Thomas Joyce in Westmeaath and Edward Joice (sic) in Donegal appear unusual. Perhaps they are indicative of other branches of Joyce tree.  Presumably individual Joyce shown here are major branches of Joyce tree(s) originating around Galway.  Will they have distinct DNA for descendants who have them in their genealogies?
