I am looking for some family history or understanding of the last name of Lonergan which in 1930 in upstate Ny was change to Lonergon, my father was Robert Lonergon of Syracuse,Ny and Teri Gordon of Bridgeport,Ny, Herald Lonergon was professor and founder of many groups at Syracuse University. But I do not know more then that and would like to know more for my three daughters sake, to give them a little history.
I am Joe Lonergan whose ancestors arrived in Quebec City in 1842. They came from Clonmel, Tipperary. I've written a book on our genealogy called Shamrocks in the Maples. You can find it on Amazon.com or Amazon.uk

Thank you for all the background on the family of Lonergans. My great grandfather was John Lonergan from Tipperary who married a Catherine Keating but I can find little out about this branch of the family as there are so many Lonergans! My grandfather left Ireland around 1915-1920 and went to Glasgow, he was also known as John Lonergan. Does any of this ring a bell?
Maybe this might have some information....
Hello to all my cousins here in the U.S and those still in the old country. I'm a Lonergan through my father's mother, Florence Lonergan of Buffalo, New York. If there are other family members from that area I would like to hear from you. If there are Lonergans in Ireland who recognize my grandmother's name and city I would love to hear from you as well. The current generation doesn't know too much about our grandmother because she and my grandfather were divorced before WWII which was practially unheard of at the time. As a result she is sort of the dark secret in our family.

Hello Ryan, I just found out that I am a Lonergan. I currently live in Olympia. My last name is Smith which is currently believed to be an Irishman who travelled over to NY where they were unable to pronounce his Gaelic name, so we ended up as Smith's. I am learning a lot about my history right now, but it seems that the Lonergan clan is the most rooted in my tree.
