Barack Obama’s Family Records

I just received copies of the images of some of the records that were found regarding Barack Obama’s Irish family ties.  Click on the images to enlarge them. A warning though, some of the image files may be large and take a bit to download. Immigration record of Falmouth Kearney (listed as Carney), Barack Obama's 2nd great-grandfather, 1850

  1. The family history research you are showing on the blog for Obama is very interesting. I am assuming you will be doing it for all of the people who have announced for the presidency, right?

  2. Who his ancestors are is of minimal importance,but interesting. I agree with Marty – do it for all the candidates! :) thanks!

  3. What is a “2″nd or “3rd” great- grandfather? Is that the same as a “great, great, great grandfather? If so, why not just say it. It shows more clearly the distance of the relationship.
    thanks

  4. i think its great that obama is half ‘irish’ im sure all the irish are proud they keep referring to him as half white just say it he’s Irish be proud.”top of the morning to ya”

  5. wondering if i’m related. same last name, grandfather William Francis Kearney (born 1904), former police officer in Manchester, NH, USA, 4 brothers, 2 sons. his parents are from Ireland…i know, longshot but…

  6. I am proud to be a 68 old WASP American at this time, at this place. President Obama Is as white as he is black and I love his family and look forward to the next 4 years.
