Here you go, my first stab at providing some information.

Paul Joyce born 1964 Chicago, Illinois, USA; son of John T. Joyce born 1930 Chicago, Illinois, USA died 1997; son of Thomas E. Joyce born 1904 Chicago, Illinois, USA, died 1943; son of John Joyce born 1871 Chicago, Illinois, USA died 1941l; son of Thomas Joyce born abt 1836 Ireland, died aft 1880.

Since I have quite a bit of history for my family in Chicago, IL both on my father and mother's sides, I have spent most of time filling in the blanks back to 1870s as quite a bit of information is available for me.   Now I need to begin to tie it all back to Ireland.   As I get more info, I will share.   

I can be contacted at

Looking for connections to the following Joyces:
Walter Joyce B1862, Clonbur IRE married to Bridget Joyce B1857. His parents were possibly Bridget and Walter Joyce.  Had 6 children born in Poundcarton and Tiernakill, Galway. Emigrated to the U.S. abt 1893 and settled in Portland, Maine.  Other surnames in the family include O'Malley, O'Sullivan/Sullivan and Laffey.
