    1. [IRELAND-ROLL-CALLS] Interesting news today from The Irish Times
    2. Pat Connors
    3. The Irish times announced today that Ireland is trying to retrieve and recreate the records lost in the Four Courts fire at the start of the Irish Civil War: https://www.irishtimes.com/culture/heritage/retrieval-of-irish-archive-lost-in-1922-fire-astounding-historian-says-1.4104963?fbclid=IwAR3WjNOrT8aOve6o6iMf1Zru8duHqf-iPev7cAFZ9RZcXcX6zBSr2jZ9qJE "The census records for the whole of the 19th century going back to the first in 1821 were incinerated. Chancery records, detailing British rule in Ireland <https://www.irishtimes.com/news> going back to the 14th century and grants of land by the crown, were also destroyed along with thousands of wills and title deeds. The records of various chief secretaries to Ireland and centuries of Church of Ireland <https://www.irishtimes.com/topics/topics-7.1213540?article=true&tag_organisation=Church+of+Ireland> parish registers vanished in the fire. It aims by June 30th, 2022, the centenary of the fire, to recreate virtually as much of the archive as possible in a digital format that can be accessible to everybody." -- Pat Connors http://www.connorsgenealogy.com

    2. Nora FitzGerald
    3. Hi Pat and all, While I know my genealogy (my father was born in Mayo and I have 1st cousins there and my mother was raised in Down and I have second cousins there), I decided to check to see if I was really Irish and not English (maiden name is Hopkins). I used Ancestry and the current results state I'm 100% Irish. I had my sister test with Ancestry and told her to use her married name with no info. She was a match as a sibling.  My paternal side shows the strong connection to the Castlebar area of Mayo and my maternal side shows a strong connection to County Down especially in the Mourne Mts area (my mother was raised at the foot of the Mourne Mts.)  I found the test results very interesting.

However, recently, both Ancestry and 23andMe are showing areas where my dna is found and one area is MAYO!  I was so excited when I saw it.  It is not the proof of church records but it is enough prove for me to accept, yes, they where from County Mayo. -- Pat Connors http://www.connorsgenealogy.com

    3. When we got my mum's DNA results back she turned out to be very Cornish indeed. Not that surprising when her surname line traces back to St Agnes in Cornwall and her matrilineal descent is from Treleaven of Lanlivery in Cornwall. You have to go way back (40 generations) for her descent from Brian Boruma. In 2014, a thousand years after he died at the Battle of Clontarf on Good Friday (St George's Day) 1014 aged about 88, mum was 88, and about 20% Irish, Scots, or Welsh per ancestry.com's reckoning.
