Ancestral Family Tree DNA Testing / Ancestry Updating Ethnicity Estimate
« on: Sunday 10 June 18 09:50 BST (UK)  »
I only noticed this yesterday.
My trace elements are being dropped
I started off with
Ireland, Scotland, Wales 76%
Great Britain 19%
Iberian 2%
Finland/North West Russia 2%
European Jewish 1%

some in the family were very pleased to see the Finland/North West Russia as we have cases of Dupuytren's Disease in the family

but now they are changing me to
Ireland /Scotland 98%
England / Wales 2%

I know as such it doesn't make any difference and I don't care one way or the other but it was handy to say 'Oh yes that's our Finnnish ancestors leaving their mark on my hand.' :D


Anyone else get updated?

Ireland / Registration District Map giving trouble
« on: Sunday 10 June 18 07:52 BST (UK)  »
S Wilson's brilliant Registration District Map is giving me a bit of bother.
Bring up a district and it shows the list of civil parishes in the district, then when you click on each parish name it gives you a  list of townlands and towns but that last part is not working, I'm not getting the townlands and towns.
I though it was just on the iPad so I changed to the laptop but it's still not working in firefox or explorer.
Anyone else have this problem?

Kerry / North Kerry Parish Histories by Fr.Ferris

This sounds like a must have if you have family from the area.

Ireland / Gordon and Owen interchangable?
« on: Wednesday 02 May 18 16:22 BST (UK)  »
Has anyone got a case of the first name Gordon recorded as Owen?
I have two girls I believe are sisters Anne and Mary baptised (RC) in the same parish from the same townland father's surname matches mother's name matches, but one has father as Gordon (Anne) the other Owen (Mary).
Griffith's only gives one family of that surname in the townland but it appears the father was dead by then and only the mother appears.
If I have the correct girls Mary's father on her marriage (transcript) is Gordon, I still have to get her marriage civil cert it's not online yet. Anne married too early for a civil cert and parent's names are not on the church record. Neither girl is witness for the other.

Ireland / Mam Trasna murders and Myles Joyce pardon.
« on: Thursday 05 April 18 09:36 BST (UK)  »
I saw this story on the news last night.
Hopefully I'll get a chance to watch the documentary tonight but I just couldn't resist looking up the deaths of the people involved.
Margaret Joyce 80 widow
John Joyce 50 married
Bridget Joyce 45 married
Michael Joyce 17
Margaret Joyce 14
It might be interesting to find out more about them.

This is on the go since last December but I hadn't heard anything about.

Kildare / Lysath, Lycett, Lyceth and so on
« on: Wednesday 07 March 18 15:44 GMT (UK)  »
If you are looking to kill some time with a bit of a challenging search read on
Iím just working on some side branches to my tree.
I came to this family via Bridget Donnelly; she is my great grandmotherís sister.
Bridget married Michael Lysath in Dublin in 1882
They live from then on in Ros(e)berry Kildare and there the problem starts as there is so many variations on the name.
1901 Census as Licied
1911 Census as Lyceth

Finding the children was fun as Bridget was dead before 1911 so I didnít have that handy children born/living, but I think I have them all.

Elizabeth Lycett 1882
Patrick Lycett transcribed as Lyceit
Catherine Lyceth 1886
Edward Lyceth 1889
William Lyceth 1891. Died 18 Jan 1898.
Julia Lyceth 1893

Mother Bridget Liced died 1893

I could leave it there but Iíd like to know if the children got married, moved away or if deaths could be found but Iím just head melted from all the variations in the name at the moment.
If anyone fancies having a look for any of them, Iíd be delighted.

Just to add to the confusion William, Michaelís brother I believe, lives in the same townland. Catherine, Michaelís daughter is staying with them in 1901.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Help with a name on ship manifest
« on: Sunday 04 March 18 23:20 GMT (UK)  »
Found one man I was looking for only to see he was with my next person of interest.
This if from Ellis Island records.
Denis Morrissey and James Donnelly on the Baltic on 29 June 1912.
Line 1 Denis and 2 James
The snip is who they are going to.
I can see James is going to his brother Thomas but who is Denis Morrissey going to?

Denis is a bit of a mystery he is with his aunt (my great grandmother) in 1901 and his uncle (Thomas' father) is his relation at home on the manifest but I haven't found his birth or a Morrissey/Donnelly marriage to see who his parents are.

Any idea on the name or the address so I can hopefully find it in the 1910 census would be great please.
