James Tunstead Burtchaell III, C.S.C., Family Database of Burtchaell Family: The Genealogy of the Burtchaell Family, (Name: Self; Date: 2002, 153 pages + xvii;), 153 pages + xvii pages in the Preface. Descendants of Michael Burtchaell (1648–1732) of Burgage More, County Wicklow, Province of Leinster, Ireland are covered in the great majority of the book. This line of the Burtchaell family is called the "Leinster Burtchaells." Included in the Leinster line are the descendants of New Orleans immigrant Nicholas Burtchaell (1826–1890), who form the "New Orleans line" of Burtchaells, included on pages 24, 45–47, 69, 84–85, 97–103, 113–116. The index to the entire manuscript appears on pages 141–153. For those users who have full viewing rights to information and media for living individuals in the family tree, the entire Burtchaell family manuscript is available (click on the attached pdf file). However, the manuscript is not viewable on the regular public site since it contains information on some living individuals; instead, the preface can be viewed via the link below. Gerald Burtchaell of New Orleans (a great grandson of Nicholas Burtchae.
      Nicholas Burtchaell (1826–1890) and his wife Annie Dinnin Burtchaell (1840–1917) "are the scions of the New Orleans Burtchaells" (page 46).
      Regarding Nicholas Burtchaell, who immigrated to New Orleans in the mid-1850s:

      Also from page 46: "His story was unknown to Dublin bachelor chronicler George Dames Burtchaell (1853–1921) who simply noted him as 'died unmarried.' Nicholas emigrated on the same ship as young Annie Dinnin; they met after disembarking in New Orleans and married soon afterward.

      "The family retains the recollection that Nicholas fled Ireland. One story (Wyona Denstedt) is that he and a cousin were out riding and the cousin was killed. Nicholas, disguised as a negro, then emigrated. Another concurs in that Nicholas had to sneak out of Ireland. There is further belief that one not his brothers wished him to come up to Canada to take our his business.

      "Unlike most other Burtchaell branches, the Louisiana Burtchaells have been Catholics. Their chronicler has been Gerald J. Burtchaell, who in 1971 studied the genealogy and occupations of the Louisiana Burtchaells."
