My first listen, and already I have so much to research! Thanks for a very informative show. My mom was an O’Sullivan, raised in British Columbia before coming to Ontario as a teen. All of my searching so far has not led me past my great Grandfather Denis or back to Ireland at all, although the family are very proud Irish.


A great show! I particularly liked the 1820 description of living conditions. Looking forward to checking out the links.
