  1. Nice to see correspondence project so alive! Tyndall was my great great grand-uncle. His sister Emma my great feeT grand-mother. At last Ireland is recognising him as one of their own. Catherine

  2. Emma Tyndall and George Young were my great great grandparents. I would love to make contact with Catherine Mullan to exchange info on the Tyndall family tree of that era. If the web boss’s could see their way in forwarding my email to Catherine I would be most grateful.

    Chuffed to have such an eminent individual in the family tree.
