Hello, everyone. My name is Brad Harrah. I have been on the list
for several weeks but have been swamped by mail. I joined the list to
learn of history and folklore as it relates to Ireland. I am interested
in Ireland because I have relatives that came over from there. I have
seen the postings made so far and am impressed by the vast knowledge. I
would greatly appreciate any help that you could give me...
As I already posted, my name is Brad Harrah. I have been told by
my father that some of our relatives are from Ireland. Is this true?
Does anyone know anything in history...folklore dealing with the name
HARRAH...or anything close to it? I'm not sure what it was originally.
It was probably 'Americanized'.
My mother--her maiden-name is MURRAY. Her side of the family has
descent records. Her grandmother came over from Ireland. She has 6
sisters with red-hair and no brothers. Most of her aunts have red hair
too. What's the relevance of red-hair anyway? Is Murray Scottish or
Irish...or what? I am curious. I have seen the work so far. I will not
be dissapointed...thanks. I will be gratefull for anything you can give me.
Sincerely...Brad [log in to unmask]
