The only Martha I came across is Martha E Wright, Aughaboy, Ballinode. There 1910. Above voting age!!


Don't know anything else, sorry.

 Some Wrights back to around 1806  were living on two small farms in the townland of Aghnamallagh, which is in Drumsnat. They went to the Church of Ireland church close by, St. Molua's.

Sent him an email. The site was set up in 2004, maybe he thinks there is no interest as no one has joined!! :-X

Hi guys, it's me, the webmaster of www.mctriangle.com !

I had closed the site to new members for a while for two reasons.
1) someone had hacked the host's server and was using bits of my area to send out porn and spam, or even host it! I couldn't get the host to take it seriously, so I made a mirror site to accomodate the current members until the hosting deal ran out. I've moved to  a new host now, and things seem to be okay there.

2) I wanted this site to be a centre for collaboration on research into the WRIGHTs in Co Monaghan. I started putting quite a bit of data I'd collected on the site and opened it for like-minded researchers. Unfortunately those who have joined seem to be unwilling or unable to share their own information. I've come to the conclusion that family history researchers are mainly selfish, understandably, because they are almost always only interested in taking information on their own families.
I have actually 36 members of the site. Could have been a lot more, but I'm picky now. One guy told me my site was rubbish, just because he could not find any of his relatives mentioned there!
I still have the dilemma of whether to put more data, and I have more, on the site or not. Why should I, if no-one is willing to help? I've spent a lot of money going to PRONI, to Monaghan, to Dublin and spent hours transcribing the data. Why should I simply give it to someone, who can't be bothered to say thanks or contribute their information? And, if people are collaborating with me, what is my responsibility towards the information they contribute? [One member turned out to be a professional genealogist. If she uses these data from my site, contributed by others, in a professional report, am I effectively responsible for the accuracy of the information? How would the members feel about their data being sold? I'm still not clear on this aspect and so I'm not too happy to allow unknowns to register for membership].

Sorry for the length of this post, but I had to get it out!  :-[

Hello Belfast Dave,

Welcome to RootsChat.

Your post contains a great deal of interesting content. Whilst there is a reasonable amount of cooperation in the field of genealogy it's a pity that there's not a lot more.  That guy who told you your site is rubbish has a nerve ... a taker rather than a giver or a sharer. Many people tend to overlook the cost of travelling and the time involved in transcribing when they have a look at someone's website in the hope that they can find some information relating to their own family ... if they were prepared to do some sharing I'm certain they might well find some of those missing links.

I've a friend who like myself is now retired. He's having a real ball travelling the country keeping in touch with elderly relatives and friends as well as making new friends and coming across a reasonable number of distant relatives that he did not know existed.

Hi Christopher,
Thanks for understanding. It does get very frustrating at times. I'm still working full time and I have to snatch a few hours every now and again for the family history research. There's a lot of information around and I wish I'd got more time to put it together.
I was just reading another post on CORBETTs in Monaghan. My gt-grandfather's first wife was a Corbett, so I have a bit of info on them. I was just trying to hoke it out when I saw your reply.

I'm in email contact with the Hall/Wright researchers and have just sent them a couple of possibilities that they may not have yet.
Co-operation rules!  ;)

Your site is very good!

Have made great progress since I joined and I thank you!

It is very good the way you keep it contained and pertinant to it's subject.

The freeloading spongers are upset because you didn't have "free information" for them to make money on.... WELL DONE!

As for putting more data! .... why give them more for free? They give absolutely nothing back and deserve more people like you keeping your data "unavailable" to non members!

I am on others Forums and have learned very quickly to send private messages to genuine people!

Keep up the good work and best of luck!

It's always the way, a feast or a famine!

Did you have some Swan(n) connection as well? I've seen that in my notes too.

I still haven't contacted Gordon, so please let me know how you get on.

All the best,

Dave
