Descent from John Burns and Mary Dempsey to Philip Robert Burns

These are my direct Burns ancestors back to John Burns and his wife Mary Dempsey of Shanagolden, County Limerick, Ireland (see map of Ireland). I have not listed multiple spouses or siblings. If you know anything about this branch of the Burns family, particularly about ancestors before John, please send me email and let me know. Click on the small images to see larger versions.
