Genealogy Questions? Ask a Genealogist for Answers ASAP
There is little anyone can tell about anyone about their particular genealogy given just a surname. The name is ***** ***** contraction of the Irish surname Donnelly.
Genealogy is the tracing of one's ancestors one generation at a time, starting with parents, then grandparents, great-grandparents, great-great-grandparents and going on backward. Surnames themselves don't have genealogies, and can originate on different continents in different times, often undergoing many changes in spelling.
