Cathy, Andy, Pat and I welcome you to this collection of family memories and histories, and some personal odds and ends.

You are included in the extended Canavan Family celebrated on this website if you are a descendant of Anthony Canavan (1790-1860) and his wife Catherine Kirby ( -1862) or if someone in your own extended family married one of these descendants. I’d be delighted to post any family photos, documents, videos or recordings you’d like to update me with. Who knows, with a little bit of luck, and help from a few self-selected pack rats in generations that follow me, this archive may even become an ever larger and self-sustaining grab bag of interesting and important lore for this extended family.
