I have managed to tie up a few loose ends. still plenty of rogue Traynors out there in the County Mayo, Ballina area branch. If anyone is looking for info on Traynors from Mayo, I'm the person to talk too.
I'd love to pursue the DNA testing. Since we're known as "blow-ins" since we've only been in Mayo since 1800 or so (we think), we must have come from somewhere. And this DNA project may be the only way to find out where we used to be from. Sadly, I am the wrong gender to take part...and my Grandmother was the Traynor. I'll volunteer a male relative eventually...
If any of you have stories of your family members moving to Ballina, please let me know. I have had nice conversations with a Traynor from Antrim who has a story of some big break in the family and someone heading to Mayo. But another Traynor showed up around 1850 and served as the first headmaster for the school. Likely it was him. But it makes you wonder, did he come to Mayo because he knew that he had family there?
Best of luck to you all in yoru research.
