From Australian records (which include surviving copies of letters sent from Ireland) we know that the parents of my Great Great Grandfather, Michael O'Brien (c1833-1925), were Owen and Bridget (nee Finegan). Two of Michael's siblings (Hugh and Mary) remained in Ireland. Church records (and recent contact online with descendants of Mary) has shown that they were known as Breen rather than O'Brien. Michael and his two brothers (Thomas and John Joseph) and one sister (Margaret Bridget) who came to Australia were all known as O'Brien. Letters from Ireland gave the family's address as Drumintee or Dernaroy.
