"The original research on the site formerly known as corkancestors.com was done largely by Jean Prendergast. Prior to that she kept her work at http://homepage.eircom.net/~ridgway. In the spring of 2011, with Jean's permission, I started restoring her web pages out of the Internet archives. In August 2012 I discovered another stash of files in the Internet archives, so the restoration work continues. - Skibb Girl"
