Bits & Pieces, 16 June 2000

Three new Townlands are complete, just click on the colored area (Agharra, Abbeyshrule, Ballymacormick) on the Civil Parish map. Thanks to all who have written on the dedication of the new website.

We're getting quite a few mails on collateral lines of the McCormicks and Milnamows ( Scahill, Keenan, Farrell). It would be helpful for those who are inquiring about information to me personlly, to use the website. Either use the Query Board area, or subscribe to the Milnamow mailing list. If you have any questions about registering to the mailing list---read the help area-- if you're still not sure or are hesitant, please E-mail me and I'll walk you through the process. I know the first time I did this I thought I was going to break something---but hey!!! it worked and I've been hooked every since. By subscribing you gain the benifit of having more people to help put the puzzle together.


A preliminary view of the ancestoral name of MILNAMOW presented by Terry Milnamow of Greensboro, NC USA will be found in the HISTORY area. We look forward to Terrys' Historical perspective on the MILNAMOW surname with its many variant spellings. I know that I've found MILMO as a variation on this name and that they were found in the Townland of Collooney in County Sligo in the 17th Century.

Site Dedication , 9th June 2000

Hi all,

Please enjoy our new web site. This is a new Genealogy Research and History site dedicated to my wife Catherine McCormick Martin and her ancestors from County Longford Ireland.

A considerable amount of time has been expended by myself and a young man by the name of Michal Pyzalski from Warsaw Poland who is visiting in this country. Michal is my local html guru, who, if I can keep him away from Quake design, playing games, also talking with his mom and others back in Poland (ICQ) can get work done. Thanks Michal.

The mapping area is not complete as yet. but will contain all the Townlands of County Longford when complete. A project has been started to collect and put into a database all the people in County Longford Ireland In 1854/1901 this map and list will give a better idea as to who left the area and the closeness of those who emigrated from County Longford throughout the world. I don't anticipate this to be done anytime soon.

Thanks for the helpful suggestions by all especially to my cousin Dennis Walsh whose constant energy, creative ideas and dedication, have shown me the way to making Genealogy design and presentation user friendly and productive.

It goes with out saying that a gentleman from Ireland, Mr. David Leahy whose roots are from County Longford, continue to be an inspiring Author whose books COUNTY LONGFORD SURVIVORS OF THE GREAT FAMINE--& COUNTY LONGFORD AND ITS PEOPLE, as well as his anticipated book on the Tithe Applotment Records,continue to give us hope to bridge the gap between generations who left Ireland in the 19th century.

Lastly however most importantly to my wife Catherine (Cathy) whose constant love and encouragement have been a driving force to get this done before our anticipated trip to Ireland in Sept of this year.

The address is

Good hunting and stop by from time to time
