Varient Spelling Groups:   #967;
From The Guide to the Various Spellings of Irish Family Names
http://www.irishroots.com/id4918.htm

History of the Name
The Joyce, or de Jorse, family  came from Wales to Galway
in the reign of Edward I.  They formed alliances with the O’Flahertys,
chiefs of Connaught, and received large grants of land in
Connemarra, in the barony of Ross, and near the borders of Mayo a
large territory which is still known as Joyces’ country.  Here they are
‘very numerous to the present day’, and many of them were
remarkable for immense strength of body and gigantic stature.
They are also noted as one of the famous ‘Tribes of Galway’ which
are described in ‘The Families of Co. Galway, Ireland’ book.  There
are others centers for the name described in The Book of Irish
Families, great & small….

History of Ireland
CD of the Day

The fourth CD completed to date from our series, just finished up
last week.  We began the History of Ireland podcast in the last year
or so.  We had some good reference books on hand like the
Annals of Ireland by the Four Masters; Keatings “History of Ireland”
and the “Conquest of Ireland” and that’s to name a few that we have
produced over the last 30 years.
Peter Reillly Adams was co-host with me for the first season of the
Hedgerow History of Ireland.  His color commentary and decades
of teaching experience really added to the show.  We picked the
the top sessions to feature on this CD.
So, now, you can listen in on the go, in the car or in the backyard.
Share some of that history with the kids too now !
It’s available now at:
http://web.mac.com/irishpat/IrishRootsCafe/CD_DVD.html

How to get Irish Citizenship and Irish Passport
Episode 178 Shownotes from www.Irishroots.com

Today we interview:
Bill Sweeney, who has been there and done that !
Listen to todays podcast interview by clicking below:
http://www.irishroots.com/podcast/podcast178.mp3

Bill has been on the show before, outlining his successful
Irish family research.  See previous podcast 161 for that:
http://www.irishroots.com/podcast/podcast161.mp3
( Counties Leitrim, Sligo, Roscommon, Ireland.  Sweeney,
Horan, Brennan …. and so on ! )

Today there are several new topic of interest,
including obtaining Irish Citizenship and an Irish Passport.

1)  FBR is the word for the day, meaning “Citizenship through
Foreign Births Registration”.

2) Most of the time it takes to get these documents is simply
‘waiting time’.

3) an Irish Passport is the goal for many obtaining Citizenship,
and it is not difficult once you are a citizen.

4) Children born AFTER your citizenship may automatically
become citizens, but not those born before.

5) If you have a grandparent born in Ireland you are in luck.
You’ll need 3 forms of identification for them, like birth, death,
and marriage certificates or other documents.

Interview Notes:
Bill had great success in researching his family history in
Ireland as given earlier this year on show 161 (see link above).

How do you get Irish Citizenship ?
Bill says it is pretty straight forward to get citizenship.
It may take 18 months, but most of that is just waiting time.
Once you have the records of your grandparents its really
about done.

Foreign Birth Registration
You will have to fill out one application for the ‘FBR’.
(Citizenship through Foreign Birth Registration.) You can
get that from the Irish Consulate nearest you and we have
copies of that form here at the Irish Roots Cafe for members!
What you need is basic genealogical proof that you descend
from your grandparent who was born in Ireland.  Your grand-
parents birth certificate or equivalent  is the key piece of
information.  If it is current enough you can often get that
online.  In all you’ll need to dig up 3 forms of proof.

Other Things
You’ll want your own birth certificate, and your parents
birth certificate to prove who you are.  You can even have
a parish priest vouch that you are who you say you are
when you send the papers in !

Spelling the Name
As we know, the same family name can be spelled different
ways on different documents.  The Irish are well aware of that,
so don’t panic if you find two spellings of the name.

Sending it off
Mail the completed FBR form to the Irish Consulate nearest you.
We have a list of Irish Consulates here:
http://web.mac.com/irishpat/IrishRootsCafe/Citizenship.html

About one year from this point Bill was sent the Foreign Birth
Registry Certificate, which meant success !  That means most
of the time you spend to get citizenship, is spent waiting.

Your Children
Under todays law, you must be a citizen when your children are born,
for them to automatically become citizens.

Passport
It is often easier to travel and work under an Irish Passport, which
also functions as an EU passport.  You just send in your FBR
certificate and your U.S. passport and you’ll get the Irish Passport
fairly quickly.
