elcome to the McGuinness Family home page. This web site is dedicated to the descendants of John McGuinness and Margaret Glennon. John McGuinness was born in Hartstown, County Meath, Ireland, and baptized at nearby Clonmellon, County Westmeath, on 8 August 1809. Margaret Glennon was born around 1812 in Ireland. They married around 1835 in the Rochester, Monroe County, New York, area. John and Margaret had nine known children who survived to adulthood. The family eventually settled in Dexter, Washtenaw County, Michigan. John died there on 9 May 1874 and Margaret on 25 March 1906. They founded a large Irish-American family that now spreads across the United States.
Although I hope to eventually offer information about the McGuinnesses in general, as well as some related Irish-American families, most of the pages found here will be of interest to the descendants of John McGuinness and Margaret Glennon, in-laws, and invited guests. Also, some of the pages will be password protected and only accessible to their descendants. Lastly, our events are planned for descendants and not the general public.
The following arms have been registered with the American College of Arms for the Descendants of John Parnell McGuinness. Just click on the arms to view the registration certificate.

The following features are planned for this web site and will be added as time permits.
Mystery Photograph Game
Every so often I hope to offer you a different photograph in which the challenge will be to identify the person, people, event, or place. The photographs will always involve the McGuinness family or related families.
Everyone should know it is Uncle Louis, but who is he shaking hands with?
Think you know the answer. Give up and need the answer. Kind of sure, but you want to double check. Just click the Celtic lizard for the answer.
Let me know if you have a photograph you would like me to display for the game. Ideally, I would like to have photographs of people as children. Remember, I can only show photographs I own or that you send to me. If you notice a bias for photographs from David McGuinness's family, then just send me some of yours to balance things out. Please send me the photographs as a scanned image, jpeg format, on disk or as an email attachment. Alternatively, you can send me the original photograph, which I will scan and return promptly.
