WHALEN Family History

The family surname Whelan is an anglicisation of the Irish surname, ? Faol?in. The surname originates from the Middle Irish '?a Fael?in' the name of the 10th to 11th century ruling dynasy of the D?isi, a population group inhabiting the area of the modern county of Waterford and south county Tipperary in the early medieval period. The word "faol?n" is derived from the Old Irish word "fael?n" meaning a small wolf.

    My great (6th) grandfather was Solomon Whalen (Whaland?) and I am trying to research my Irish roots? This is a picture of my 4th, 5th, 6th grandfathers. Solomon was from Ireland and so was Henry Whalen. If you have any of these relatives and could help me, I would appreciate it.

    My paternal Gr Gr Grandfather was Thomas Whalen (Whelan??), born Jan 1829, died Oct 1903; immigrated from Ireland in 1849/1850, possibly through Philadelphia, PA (based on the DNA story given to me by ancestry). My DNA story says I am from Donegal, in northern Ireland. Trying to find additional ancestors, family crest, etc. Thank you
