Vallely Genealogy

From Ireland to Oklahoma

The site is hosted by Tom Vallely in Tulsa, Oklahoma, U.S.A.  The mission of the site is to provide research information, links and a forum for those interested in the Vallely name.  There is information on other Vallelys on the web, the origin of the name and even DNA information.

Any outside research or information on individual Vallely trees is always welcome. 


A new page from Gerard Vallely about the Spanish story in his family history.

I'm excited about the new Vallely Music page--more to come.

I noticed that at times people put info in the Guestbook wanting information on family links.  You are, of course, welcome to post whatever you want but entries soliciting a response or information get better results in the Forum.  The Guestbook is more of a "Hello, I was here" type thing.  The Forum makes it easier to have a back and forth dialogue.  Even in the Forum don't expect thousands of responses and immediate satisfaction.  There are more of us than any of us ever dreamed but we are still outnumbered by the Smiths and Jones.

The forum and guestbook have recent entries about the ever popular myth that Vallely is of Spanish origin.  My DNA testing  shows an old, old Celtic background and this entry about the Black Irish pretty well refutes the Spanish origin of the name--at least in my mind.  If you have family legends to share I'll be glad to add them to the Mythology Page.  If you have research that refutes the Black Irish paper I'd be glad to link to it or share it on these pages.  Keep researching.

For the great Gaels of Ireland
Are the men that God made mad,
For all their wars are merry,
And all their songs are sad.
     --G.K. Chesterton
