We publish more Irish genealogy books than anyone in the world !

Book of the Month:
Kings and Queens (Leix, Laois) County, genealogy & family hist. notes.

Kings County-Offaly, Queens County Leix/Laois
Queens County is also known as ‘Leix’ and ‘Laois’ today. The
ruling family in ancient times were the O’Moores.  Queen Mary
came along in the 16th century and claimed the land as part
of the crown, renaming it ‘Queens County’, along with its main
town being renamed ‘Maryborough’.  This would not remain the case
as the county would be renamed ‘Laois’ and the town renamed
Portlaoise with the coming of Irish independence.

As listed in this book:
Most Numerous In Queens County , (Co. Leix or Laois):
Dunne…..Dunn…..Donne
Delany…..Delaney…..Delauney

works.

Part Two Includes
The complete existing returns from the census of 1659,
also showing the methods of spelling family names and place
names at that time in history. This census is organized by barony,
townland and parish. The baronies included are Phillipstowne;
Coolis Towne; Ballaboy; Ballycowen; Geshell; Clonlisk;
Garriecastell; Kilcourcy; Eglish; Ballybritt; Ossery;
Maryborrough; Cullenagh; Sliemargeagh; Ballyadams;

tituladoes are given, such as Barnaby Dunn, William Lestrange;
Walter Warnford; Joseph Hamon; James Barnwall, Edmond
McShane, Thomas Piggott, and so on. These tituladoes are
tied to specific townlands. Furthermore, at the end of each
barony there is a list of ‘Principall Irish Names and Their Number’.
In one barony the names of Bane 5, Bryan and McBryan 5,
Carroll 6, Conner and McConner 7, Conraghy 17, Dun 18, Divoy 5,
McEdmond 5, Mallone 5, McRory 6, and so on, are listed for
each barony. Different surnames appear in different baronies,
thus providing a clue for researchers. It is important to note
that the spellings of place names and family names changed
over time. The researcher should be aware of minor changes
in the spelling of his name.

Irish Family Name of the Day:
Lawlor, Lalor

Todays family history in honor of member:
Les Warren of Waikato, New Zealand, welcome as a new
member ! Searching: Lalor/Lawlor from County Kerry, but
likely came from Co. Laois.

Related Spellings of the Name
Laler, O’Lalor, Lawler, Lawlar

Varient Spelling Groups:  #1057, 2476,
From The Guide to the Various Spellings of Irish Family Names
http://www.irishroots.com/id4918.htm

History of the Name
O’Lalor was one of the 7 septs, or families, of Leix, and the O’
prefix is generally not found with the name today.  The leading
members of the ‘septs’ were transplanted to Co. Kerry in 1609,
but most of the family remained near their traditional lands.
Records of the family can be found in the estate papers in the
National Library of Ireland in Dublin.
Note the name of Lalors mills, where  the 7 septs were were
officially defeated by the signing of a treaty.
The Lalor families can be found in the same ancient
genealogies as the O’Connors of Kerry and the O’Mores, as
given in Keatings History (IGF).
One principal seat of the family name was at Disert, near the
rock of Dunamase.  From here a branch of the family settled in
Tipperary. A branch of this line is found in the Irish Book of
Arms.

Todays Interview:
This audio interview is number 162 on DNA at:
http://www.irishroots.com/content/view/97/144/

DNA and Genealogy

We cover a lot of territory today, with our old friend Bennett
Greenspan of Familytreedna.com. I’ll just mention a few of the
things we cover today.  It is a very wide selection of topics.

Male and Female DNA
We’ll cover the well known ‘Y’ DNA testing as well as the
newest interest in Moms DNA or the female DNA.  Then
listen in to the newest thing: Autosomal DNA testing which
few have tried yet !   (By the way it is the female DNA that
they usually have to look for in those Egyptian mummies.)

Irish DNA
Become more familiar with terms like R1B and M222 and what
they mean to Irish genealogy, and find out how many people
might descend from Niall of the Nine Hostages in Northern
Ireland !  We also talk a bit about Norman and Viking DNA
in Ireland, and the location of the Vikings there.

The Neanderthals
Then we make a note of Neanderthal DNA and what the new
discoveries mean about Neanderthal DNA in us !  We also
talk about the storage life of DNA and its usefulness.

American Indians
We also note the American Indian, and how at times the
families that inter-married with the Irish were called the
‘Black Irish’.  An old term, with yet another meaning.

All in all, you will learn a lot about DNA and genealogy in this
session, and in particular Irish DNA and Genealogy.
