Hi Everyone

Postby catalyst » Tue Aug 13, 2013 12:10 am

My name is Tracey and I live on the Gold Coast in QLD, Australia.

I would not say I am a FAN of Shannen's as such, but I admire her talents. That is not meant to be a slight against avid fans at all. ;)

My reason for joining is that I believe that we (Shannen and I) are long lost relatives. I too am a Doherty and since the death of my father, I have been checking out the ancestry and it appears that her great grandfather and my great grandfather were brothers; hers emigrating to the US and mine emigrating to Australia. What is interesting to note as well is our genealogy goes all the way back to Irish Royalty dating as far back as the 10th century.

I am posting this here on the off chance Shannen happens to peep in. If she is interested, I would be happy to share all of this information with her.

So Shannen if you are reading this, please feel free to PM me.

Thank you

Tracey Doherty.

If this turns out to be true, that is definitely great! Also, welcome to the boards! :D
And... maybe a strange question, but do you (or anyone close to you) think you look like Shannen in some way?
Do not dwell in the past, do not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

Well I am a 48 yr old woman so I am well past the fan stuff! lol It's more about my family geneology and not so much about Shannen to be honest. I just thought she might be interested where her ancestory lies.

As to someone looking like her? Well no, not me....lol I am blonde/blue eyed Irish but the nose shape is similar I suppose and the face shape. I had never thought about that side of it until now.

this is what I look like if it helps. As you can see I look nothing like her.

That said there are certain pics of my now 21 yr old daughter that when she was young, had a resemblance with the dark hair, high cheekbones and heartshaped face. That said, she also had a resemblance to "XENA"..lol and Lucy Lawless is not a relative so .... :?

Like I said, my quest to get in touch is not about any lookalike thing, but more to check out the ancestral side of things. It's not at all about the link to celebrity but completely about the link to heritage. Basically I sort of need her input to fill in the blanks I cannot my end. My own grandfather died when my father was 10 yrs old. As such I was never able to get info from him personally as to this search. With the info I have though, I have been able to trace through to the middle ages and it seems that my great grandfather( who arrived in AU in 1840) John's wife bore my Grandfather Joseph, who then had my father James (along with 12 other siblings). From this I have also been able to determine that HER great grandfather(he would have been a James or Joseph or John- hello.. Irish families..many ) went to the America's (could have been via Canada...I cannot check that as I don't have that info without her assistance).

I admit this is a selfish quest as I want my kids to have the full genealogy at hand. It's not about Shannen but perhaps includes her is all. :)
