A place to enter your genealogical summary of your REIDY, RIEDY, REEDY, READY, or similarly surnamed ancestors and read the summaries of others. I hope this will result in useful contacts among those searching this name. If you are interested in family history or genealogy and have a REIDY in your family tree, check this out. My interest in Irish Reidys but I’d be happy to list others here as well.If you are interested in Reidy genealogy, this is the place to be.
Read the genealogy queries here and think about yours. You might be a Reidy or a descendent of one. If you think you would like to add a query, just email me (see the contact form on my blog.) Probably a good idea to give some information about both the ancestor of interest and at least one generation of descendants but that depends on what you know and what you think your long-lost relatives may know.
Our name has been recorded as REIDY, RIEDY, REEDY, and READY and other variations as well. These surnames are derived from the Irish name O’RIADA. I would like this to be a meeting place for all with an interest in REIDY and the variant spellings of REIDY.
The list of queries is divided into 2 pages: Irish origins where county is known and everything else including: unknown origin (includes Irish and non-Irish); similar names of Irish origin; and similar or identical names of non-Irish origin.
Because the pages were getting kind of big, I am making it easier to find new queries. I will add new listings to the page but copy them to a page with just new listings. I’ll date them on the new listings page and keep new stuff there for at least a month. New listings will be on regular pages as well as the new listings page.
