    1. [Irish Genealogy] DNA re the Irish
    2. Maisie Egger via
    3. For those with Irish blood coursing through their veins: From Sigma Xi SmartBriefs Top Story Whole-DNA study traces origins of the Irish Ancient people from the Middle East and what's now Eastern Europe are the early ancestors of the Irish, according to a whole-genome analysis. Scientists used DNA from a 5,000-year-old woman found near Belfast and a trio of men between 3,000 and 4,000 years old buried on an offshore Irish island. "It is clear that this project has demonstrated what a powerful tool ancient DNA analysis can provide in answering questions which have long perplexed academics regarding the origins of the Irish," said Eileen Murphy, co-author of the study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

    3. RED NASTURTIUM   A lone red nasturtium glows starlike ... this Christmas Day. It trails over the wild Woodbine in my patio. Its light shines through greyness, keeping a hint of Summer alive.   -- Mary Guckian (Ireland)     My sister Margie and I met poetess and e-mail friend Mary Guckian in person in Dublin in 2006.  Mary was kind enough to drive us around one day to see the sights, made us a little lunch to include cooked rhubarb (which she knew we liked) and took us to a marvelous poetry workshop in Dublin later that evening. Mary is originally from Co. Leitrim, Ireland, where we have confirmed from an old family letter that some of our Irish relatives lived.

    3. ----- Original Message ----- CREELS My father spent hours trimming the edges of the newly cut sally rods, to make creels for taking the turf over the soft soil of the bog, so that the horse and cart could bring it home for the winter time. I watched how he scalloped the edges, tightly tied and intricately weaved the fresh wood. He was making tools, repairing them. Busy with his hands, he wasted no time, took no holidays, or trips away, except once a year, cycling to Mohill for the Manachan Day Fair with my mother. When they got home, the sun was a low ember, the cows milked. SNOW MORNING I walk to work along the Shelbourne Road, after the Christmas holiday Inches of snow cover over the gardens; on the trees each branch looks like a stroke of artist's white paint, and lilies laden with delicate meringues form fairy designs. Bunches of red fruit on the cotoneaster give a warm glow to the cold day. Hedges, stifled from constant trimming, bear spheres of whiteness,squashed into the tight branches; the grass is covered in a cotton carpet, and sleet drops mark out a pattern, reminding me of the farm after a snowfall, when the hens criss-crossed the garden outside the kitchen window. -- Posted by permission. Mary was born in 1942 in Kiltoghert, Co. Leitrim, one of a family of seven, her childhood spent on a totally self-sufficient, organic farm.

    1. [Irish Genealogy] New Data Base - St. John's Cemetery, Albany, NY
    2. Bill & Cathy McGrath via
    3. NOTE: THIS NEW DATA BASE CONTAINS IRISH RECORDS OF INTEREST The latest addition to the transcription projects on the website of the Troy Irish Genealogy Society, www.troyirish.com are the recently discovered interment records of 12,731 individual from the long closed St. John's Cemetery in Albany New York. St. John's Cemetery was located on Delaware Avenue in Albany, New York. To see these records on the TIGS website, click on PROJECTS and then ST. JOHN'S CEMETERY, ALBANY, NY - INTERMENT RECORDS. It had been widely reported that the interment records for this cemetery, covering interments starting over 173 years ago, had been lost or destroyed. However, in a recent chance conversation with the Historian at St. Agnes Cemetery in Menands, New York, it was discovered that the mostly intact St. John's interment book was in the possession of a retired cemetery employee and the book was promptly recovered. St. John's Cemetery was opened in 1841 by St. John's Church in Albany in an area which was considered "country" at that time. However, with the growth of the City of Albany, the cemetery land was wanted for development and in 1878 and 1879, the Albany City Council ordered that no further burials were to be made there and the cemetery had to close. Burials, however, continued as late as 1888-1890 before the cemetery closed and re-interments of the thousands of individuals buried there was started in the early 1900's. This long closed church of St. John's was located on Green Street in Albany's South End and it's parishioners were mainly Irish famine immigrants that began pouring into Albany during the 1820's and 1830's. This "Irish" connection is shown in the following summary of burials of this first generation of Irish immigrants, which, for the most part are identified as to the "County" in Ireland where they came from. It can be assumed that many of the other 46 years of interment records in this cemetery were for the children and grandchildren of these early Irish immigrants. A breakdown of the Irish immigrants identified on the interment records with their home county in Ireland shows the following: Antrim -10 Armagh - 35 Carlow - 80 Cavan - 307 Claire - 62 Cork - 376 Derry - 22 Donegal - 28 Down - 39 Dublin - 52 Fermangh - 30 Galway - 39 Kerry - 76 Kildare - 38 Kilkenny - 195 Kings - 114 Leitrim - 28 Limerick - 160 Londonderry - 5 Longford - 143 Louth - 93 Mayo - 36 Meath - 116 Monaghan - 47 Queens - 114 Roscommon - 159 Sligo - 47 Tipperary - 458 Tyrone - 91 Waterford - 83 Westmeath - 138 Wexford - 131 Wicklow - 43 Ireland-No County - 500 TOTAL IRISH - 3,895 Other countries of origin identified in the interment records list Canada-89, England-30, France-8, Germany-198, Holland-7, Poland-2, Scotland-6, Spain-1 and Wales-2. Also identified were individuals from the following states; California, Colorado, Connecticut, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Vermont and Virginia. A smaller number of records shows one or two individuals from all over New York State cities, towns and counties while three locations show a heavier concentration; Rensselaer with 106, Greenbush with 77 and New York City with 63. As would be expected, Albany with a total of 5,815 records was shown as the county of origin for the largest number of individuals. Of course this figure includes the second and third generations for those early Irish immigrants. These fantastic records from this recently rediscovered interment book is a wonderful find for genealogists, especially for those researching Irish surnames. As genealogists searching Irish surnames often find out, it is quite rare to find records that identify the Irish county of orgin. Bill McGrath TIGS Project Coordinator Clifton Park, NY
