This week at the Cafe:

1)  So busy, and glad to be alive but sometimes….
Our Sean Nós song practice is going well and it
looks like we now have one more in the area in
training. that makes 3 or 4 in a city of 1 million+ ?

2) On the frustrating side, my guaranteed monthly
rate on my health insurance policy, is paid every
month for decades.  The day before Thanksgiving
I get a notice that they are canceling the policy by
leaving the state.  Excuse me, we had a contract
which I lived up to for years and years… and they
are still in business elsewhere.  I don’t expect
any help from government regulators, as they likely
want to become my insurance company (against
my will !).  Glad to get that off my chest….

3) Suzanne called our message line and asked when
we might do a podcast on the name ‘Cronnelly’.
We normally do the Name of the Week according
to what members are researching, so eventually
it will come up.  We of course, do publish a book
by a ‘Cronnelly’, I believe it’s the history of the
families of the Clanna Rory…available immediately!

Book of the Month:
County Derry Genealogy and Family History…
To Order, or For More Information go to:
http://www.irishroots.com/id4675.htm

What this book does
This work includes copies of
actual records (some worn, torn and faded), from
the IGF Library. It also includes rough sketches of f
amily coats of arms and notes from centuries past -
seldom found elsewhere. The resources provided
here will help research any family in the county,
including old Irish families, and settler families from
England, Scotland, Wales and the continent. This
book is a hands on guide for finding your family in
Derry – some family history is included – but it is
not a gigantic collection of family histories . (For
that see ‘The Book of Irish Families, great & small’,
the first book in the Irish Families series.)

The Irish Families Project for Derry
“County Derry Genealogy and Family History Notes”,
volume 13 in the series, expands upon that coverage
with added families and new resources just for Derry.
(In this way both books can work together as a set if
desired, or they may be used independently.)

McLoghlin; Alexander; Barnard the Bishop of
Derry; Henry Barry, Governor of Derry; John

The parish is an important subdivision of the county.
Parish records can be vital to research in the county.
The following modern parishes are listed as in Co.
Derry in this work: …………

Several old townlands are listed here as well…..

Keep in mind the spelling of townlands and parishes
can change over time. Be flexible in your research
when looking for these names.

Irish Family Name of the Day:
Rock

Todays family history in honor of :
John Rock of AZ.

Related Spellings: Roch, Rock, Rocke, Roach,
Rockford, Carrick, Craig, Cregg, Carrigh…

Varient Spelling Groups: 248, 1802
‘Guide to Various Spellings of Irish Family Names’
http://www.irishroots.com/id4918.htm

History of the Name

Rock is not in itself an Irish name, but may come
from several origins.  Roach is a name which comes
from the French meaning ‘of the Rock’, and has been
in Ireland since the 12th century.  Note old placenames
recorded, such as ‘Rock’ in County Wexford; Rockville
in Roscommon and Rockstown Castle in Limerick as
given in the Irish Book of Arms.

Translations
Other names can be translated into the English
name of ‘Rock’. This is the case for the Irish ‘Carrick’ or
‘Carraig’, etc.. which can be translated to ‘Rock’.

Records
Though not numerous in Ireland, ‘Rock’ is recorded in
the 1659 census and in the 1890 birth index. It is
also a principal name in Kilkenny in the 17th century.
James and Mary Rock are given in our ‘Names of Irish
Passengers to America’ in the early 19th century. One
‘Andrew Rock’ is also given in the ‘Families of County
Dublin, Ireland’

We publish more Irish genealogy books than anyone in the world !
Two books are selected this month:

(1) Co. Monaghan genealogy and family history notes.
http://www.irishroots.com/id4691.htm

Finding Your Family in County Monaghan This illustrated, well
indexed book, was created exclusively to help you find your family in
County Monaghan, Ireland. Focusing specifically on families within the
county, it includes an introduction to research and sources in Monaghan.
The most numerous families from birth records are given, as well as
rather rare Monaghan families found in heraldic records. Included you
will find a full page county map from the Atlas of Ireland, along with a
listing of modern parishes and old townlands, along with the address and
location of records for more research. Published by the Irish Genealogical Foundation, this book was originally made for members researching in
Monaghan.

What this book does This work includes copies of actual records
(some worn, torn and faded), from the IGF Library. It also includes
rough sketches of family coats of arms and notes from centuries past -
seldom found elsewhere. The resources provided here will help research
any family in the county, including old Irish families, and settler families
from England, Scotland, Wales and the continent. This book is a hands
on guide for finding your family in Monaghan- some family history is
included – but it is not a gigantic collection of family histories . (For that
see ‘The Book of Irish Families, great & small’, the first book in the Irish
Families series by O’Laughlin.)
(end of Co. Monaghan book description)

—————————————————-
(2) continued from last month: (Part 2)
‘A Special Census of Northern Ireland’

http://www.irishroots.com/id4659.htm

Rare Land Owner Records and Historical Notations Including
Counties Armagh, Tyrone, Donegal, Cavan, and Fermanagh,
with notes on Londonderry (Derry).
with names of Catholics and Protestants Affected.

Excerpt from “Pynnar’s Survey. A Special Census of
Northern Ireland”
“Sir Alexander Hamilton(55) the first patentee. Jane
Hamilton (56), late wife to Claude Hamilton, deceased,
hath 2,000 acres, called Carrotobber and Clonkine. Upon
this Proportion there is a strong castle, and a Bawne of
Lime and Stone thoroughly finished with her family living
there (….and in the over 1/2 page of footnotes on this
family are given other inhabitants in 1629, namely George
Griffin, Francis Cofyn, Stephen Hunt, and Richard
Lighterfoot, all of whom had been granted deeds.)”

Family Name Changes
There are many notes on family names, locations and
backgrounds. Of the name of John Whisher, Hill gives
that it is ‘now’ written as Wishart, and that Carew writes
it as Wyhard, and that he had returned to Scotland and
returned and suffered many misfortunes. We also find
lists of tenants who were not landowners in addition to
the ‘census’ type material.

Many Families Given
There are too many families and specific plots of land to
give here, but a few of the families listed several times in
the work are: Acheson; Alexander;
Bingley; Beresford; ODonnelly; O’Boyle; Browne; Chichester;
McCaffery; Butler; McBryan; Cole; Dillon; Hamilton
(over 30 index listings); Moore; Maguire; Oneale; OReilly;
Stewart; Richardson; Wilson; and Wray…..

This is but one example of an historical work furnishing
great genealogical information.  Admittedly this is one of
the better source examples I have found.

Irish Family Name of the Day:
McKenna

Todays family history in honor of member:
LeAnn Sampson
I believe my gr grandfather Michael McKenna, left Ireland in
1860, and traveled with his parents Patrick and Ann, and his
siblings Patrick and Bridget. Looking for birth place in Ireland.
Related Spellings of the Name
Kenna, Kennagh, Ginnaw, etc..

Varient Spelling Groups: #2439
From The Guide to the Various Spellings of Irish Family Names
http://www.irishroots.com/id4918.htm

History of the Name
The MacKenna surname is among the 100 most numerous names
in Ireland.  In ancient times, as well as today, the Mac Kennas are a
family of the province of Ulster, in the north of Ireland.
Most anciently they are found of the Ui Neill in Ulster, but the name is
found as far south as Cork and Kerry.  They are anciently given as
chiefs of Truagh, in the barony of Trough, in Co. Monaghan in modern
times.  They are found several centuries later in the parish of Maghera,
in Co. Down.
In 1659 there were over 90 heads of families of this clan in Monaghan.
The MacKenna family has in general kept the ‘Mac’ prefix before the
name into modern time….. (more in the Book of Irish Families…)

Curious News and Notes, From Ireland today

1)  Cold weather and busted water pipes in Northern Ireland have the
folks in need of water itself. I see 120,000 litres of were being sent
by Scotland to help thirsty households.
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-12098743

2)  I have some friends planning a trip back to Ireland this summer,
and they were dismayed to find the airfare listed at around $2,000.
I’d say wait and see.  I don’t think that will do for most of us….

3)  Terminal 2 passengers traveling to Ireland will not have to undergo
customs in the US, it will all be taken care of on the Irish side !
http://www.independent.ie/national-news/t2-passengers-to-us-will-clear-all-checks-in-dublin-2479565.html

4)  Top baby names in Ireland this year:  Lily and Ben, followed by
James, Patrick, and Thomas see more…
http://www.breakingnews.ie/ireland/lily-and-ben-top-baby-names-list-487490.html

5) Extinct for 150 years. Bittern makes a flying return to Ireland, probably
due to cold snap in Europe.  Life making a comeback ??
http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/frontpage/2010/1230/1224286494404.html?digest=1

6)  History repeats itself…. And, if you think todays weather is bad,
how about the Great Irish Frost of 1740, which laid many and Irishman
to rest.
http://www.independent.ie/national-news/our-cold-snap-was-nothing-compared-to-the-great-irish-frost-of-1740-2478360.html

7) Ireland knocks off Paris.  Frommers travel guide readers have voted
Ireland as the top tourist spot for 2011.
http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/frontpage/2010/1228/1224286367987.html?digest=1
