I am doing my genealogy and am a descendant of a certain Roger Casey born c. 1646 "in Ireland" who landed in Acadia, New France (nowaday called New Bunswick, Canada) c. 1660. Some family rumors hint towards Co Cork... maybe Mitchelstwon.
I am schedule to visit Ireland in June 2016 and would like to investigate "on site" into some archives, if such exists. I am wondering if you could either givc me some indication as to where to look for or whom to contact that could help me on this quest.
