Fr. Paddy O'Mara tree

  1. Does a family tree exist by Fr. Paddy O'Mara?
    • Someone in the family (I have forgotten who) told me before 1991 that Fr. Paddy traced the family tree, and "left his work with the Jesuits".
    • There is no tree in Fr. Paddy O'Mara papers at IJA. There is one page of notes for a tree.
    • This and other Fr. Paddy papers came from Gardiner Street.

  2. Maybe another box exists at Gardiner Street?
  3. Maybe he deposited his tree in Jesuit Library. Formerly Milltown Park. Moving to DCU All Hallows Campus.

  4. Pat Lavelle typed out pages called "Uncle Paddy's notes". Implies the original Uncle Paddy's notes may exist elsewhere.
