Cronin families page

This section is intended to allow Cronin researchers to post information about their own families. It can be as little as a simple 'roll call' or as much as a family history.

what to include

  • A place name: All the families on these pages have the same surname. The only way to identify them is by a place they can be associated with. If you know of a place in Cork, use it, but also include the place they are most associated with wherever it is.
  • Names, dates, places, emigration, occupations: The more you include the more likely you are to make contact with someone researching the same family or even a different family in the same area. I find the family group sheet is a good way to present the material but if you do not have enough material to do that then a few paragraphs are OK. Click the links on the left of this page for examples.
  • Photos, see the technical notes below.

what to leave out

  • The first rule of the Internet is 'never post personal information about a living person'. For this reason you should remove any mention of living people.
  • Anything subject to copyright.

how to post it

Email it to me either as an attachment or plain email.


  • The preferred format for attachments is html, many word processors will have the option of saving files in this format, click 'save as' then check the list under 'file type'. If this is not available then Microsoft Word, rich text, or as a last resort plain text are all acceptable. Adobe 'pdf' can also be used but some people may not have the facilities to open them. Please do not send GEDCOM, I have no way of opening them.
  • Photos: Photos will always add to the visual appeal of a page but the rule is 'keep them small'. 10Kb is an ideal target size, 20Kb is about the largest suitable, any larger and they just take too long to download. Send them in jpeg format. If you do not have the software to adjust the size of photos, I do, but it makes things a lot easier for me if you do it yourself.
  • Spam: In order to reduce the chances of contributors being spamed 'mailto' links will not be used on these pages. In simple terms this means you will not be able to click on a link and get an email window (except my own which is already known to the spammers). This method is not fool proof but it will help.
