I've been researching my Irish American family history for several years. I believe I have narrowed my emmigration location (in 1869) from either Donegal or Tyrone (Ballymagoory ?). Once I definitively locate the site I plan to publish my research papers and am asking an expert on this forum to give me a hand.

1. Could you give me some insight into the (Mc)Cross(a/e/i/o)n name.
2. At this time I have a working title of "On my Irish Mind" - can someone translate this into Irish Gaelic so that I can use it instead of the english version.

Thank you so much !!!

For your translation I would go for ‘Ar m’intinn Gaelach’

But certainly wait to see if anything better-or a correction comes along!

At the risk of opening old wounds with James( apologies ~James I was way out of order -truce???).

Can I suggest you -go here as suggested by Sam.

Key in your name.

It’s free for a bit and it gives the meaning and more of CrossAn- a jester or entertainer.

I have no link with the site which is run by a very reputable national daily paper.
