    I've found Quakers in Salem during the witch hunt.as ancestors. Samuel Barton married one of the 3 sisters that were accused of witchery. The survivor. So, British Isles is as close as I can come.

    My grandmother was a Downey and that is Irish for "belonging to a fort".

    My great grandfather was from Cork. On the other side of the family, there are roots in Glasgow , so chances are , Irish ancestors there too.

    My great grandfather John Mullally and his wife Ellen Lannen Mullally emigrated from Ireland in 1867, landing in New York, where their first child, also Ellen, was born.  They then moved to San Francisco where John had a cousin, and had five more children, the first of whom, Mary Bridget, was my grandmother.

    Their first son, John E. Mullally, was elected to the California State Assembly in 1912 from a district in San Francisco, and in 1914 was planning to run for the state senate when he was murdered during the hold up of a saloon he owned.  I wrote a time travel story in which he survived and was later elected President, "Timely Misadventure".

    Millions of people, many of them in Ireland, have Irish ancestors.

    Might it be an idea to specify where in the world you are looking at?   Irish people have emigrated to, or been forced to go to, many parts of the world.   Some have even got their names onto maps, e.g. "O'Higgins" in South America.
