Traditional Genealogy - the paper trail

On these pages you will read about some of the earliest Spearin's on record.

A good starting place is the London Spering's, the goldsmiths who eventually travelled to Limerick.

More distant connections possibly include a printer / book binder in Cambridge, and ties to European Royalty.

The early history of the Spearin's in Limerick has been pieced together from a variety of unusual sources, including the family trees of their in-laws.

And we look at the Spearin families that have been identified so far by means of traditional paper-based research.

This section also explores the current stumbling blocks to future research and suggests some next steps down the road to discovering our ancestors.
