Camac,
Thank you very much. I also forwarded a copy to his family and I know they will be grateful for your thoughts. Thanks again and thanks to all veterans, especially you.

I too have just reread this topic and it is still just as interesting.
I trust all goes well with Jeff and Freedom.

Stayed at a B&B in Blandford, Mass sitting at the breakfast table watching all the birds feeding at the platform feeder, then we notice no more birds, just a sparrow squatting down on the feeder and at first what we thought might be an injured or sick flicker sitting in the apple tree right there. They both stayed for about 5 minutes , very still and hunched, when all of a sudden this hawk came bursting around the apple tree , flew at the sparrow, the flicker takes off, sparrow escapes, hawk pulls a u-turn and gone. Breakfast table excitement.
Later that day we come back from our travels and the hostess tells us how she was in the barn when all of a sudden a small bird flies into the barn and hits the window and falls, at the same time a sharp shinned hawk flew in after it and just missed hitting her. Must have been the same hawk looking for a spot of brunch before heading south again.

Well maybe because I am an inconsiderate, procrastinating, self obsessed, pitiful excuse of a middle aged old pophead (as my oldest use to say as a child, who is now 22) , you may now add the missing "o ".

I have no legitimate excuse for my neglect and deserve a good beating with a stick.
Will any one buy senile dementia??!!?? Abduction by aliens??!!?? Called away for business trying to reunite TheBeatles???!!!?? Elvis called me and said he needed me right away??!!?? Laziness and procrastination followed by a good dose of guilt??!!??

Please pick A maybe B and not E rolleyes.gif

My sincerest and heartfelt apologies to all.

PS My Ireland journal still sits next to the computer, paperclipped to the last chapter, woefully waiting for me to get my act together.

Hi folks, been weeks since I have had a chance to get on. Busy with work and our stupid DSL is constantly going down. Tried twice this morning to get on and lost it half way thru my typing. Now I have to go do deliveries. I feel like a pinwheel, lots of movement and flash, but I'm not really accomplishing much. Been very busy just not making alot of money at it. Also very busy doing genealogy research.

I'll be back!! beer_mug.gif note.gif thumbs_up.gif

It is even simpler than that, we all are descendents of one person, all cousins , all related.
Heck, after the last ice age you had about 60,000 individuals living in Europe major and now you have 300 million and the vast majority are not immigrants but of the 60k already there.

DNA testing is a tool.

I have attached a report (I hope) that will give everyone an idea of how complex this stuff can get, and yet how much progress can be made through DNA testing.

This report is by Dr. David N. Ewing, MD, who is the gentleman in charge of the Clan Ewing DNA study mentioned in my original post. David and I are also seventh cousins once removed according to our conventional paper Genealogies (We are listed as SR and DN in the report.

DYF399X testing we did was an attempt to differentiate closely related groups of Ewing men. So far the jury is out on what this has really done for us.

Here is an updated link to the Webpage for the Clan Ewing DNA Project for those who may be interested: Ewing Surname DNA Project

Ok, After careful reading and thorough analysis of your Ewing DNA paper submitted I conclude.........................I have a headache!!! smile.gif

What great stories of family!!

oldraven, GREAT picture.

We as kids, my family spent alot of time together with family, cousins, aunts and uncles. My mothers 4 sisters and my fathers sister and brother that were in the states. I have 42 first cousins and about 20 of us would get together at family events on a routine basis. Smaller groupings were always in the mix.

My boys are grown up pretty much, my oldest is 22 and works with me and the neighbor here in the industrial park. We butted heads from about 8th grade thru 18 yrs old and he definitely got in some troubles. Now he is level headed, mature, smart, hardworking and I am very proud of him.
My youngest is 17 and is smart and kind and a cherished human being. Mind you he has caused the hairs to turn grayer quicker a few times and has done some pretty lame brained things but I believe he will be ok. He does well in school, is adventurous, outgoing and is a good friend to all and I am very happy and proud with him. and as a baby , he could laugh, man could he laugh!!

We spent alot of time visiting family as they grew up and still do. We liked to fish together, my yougest still does with me. We did alot of rockhounding together digging at old mines and quarries. Camping and whitewater rafting when they were older. My oldest still works with me rebuilding Triumph sport cars.

I think keeping open communication, respect at all times and talking no matter what happens helps all in the family.

This September my honey and I will have been married 29 years.

Woods and water.

I am very fortunate and very thankful.

Very cool! I have to dig ours back out, my mother did the National Geographic DNA testing as well, and for the life of me I don't know what I did with the results. They're around somewhere...

Our Todd DNA managed to settle a lot of questions we had regarding which branch belongs to which. The line I'm descended from seems to have landed in Pennsylvania, where they settled and the branches split from there. There's another branch that is in North Carolina that we still don't know much about, they're totally unrelated as near as we can find so far.

Sekhmet, With my having done this DNA test we may have broken thru a new level in connecting past lineage. Oral history and post dated written history has the story of my gggggggggrandfather being one of either 3 or 4 brothers with the 2 or 3 other brothers losing touch with him. Some say one may have remained in Ireland. Some say an Alexander and a John may be his brothers but there is no documented proof, just anectdotal evidence in geographic proximities that they settled in the colonies and in the names of their corresponding children, all sharing names.
Now with DNA testing I have been matched with a descendent of one of the other McNutts and this may very well attach some credence to the stories. I'm just not sure yet as I have not seen the documentation for the other family member.

Just watched Irish Jam, funny comedy. Filmed in Cornwall.

The Field, same director and producer as My Left Foot, filmed in County Galway. Bulls Stone Cottage is on the Clifden Road in Leenane, Connemara, drove right by it.

Far and Away, Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman, good scenes in the beginning, County Galway, Wicklow, Kerry, Dublin, even Maam Cross, County Galway, junction R336 and N59, ask me how I know!

Hello Marguriet and to everyone. The gene had slipped even farther for me. I am of Chinese heritage and live in Asia and for the longest of time have loved things Irish - from celtic music and irish lore and the lilting gaelic language. Must have been through my beautiful mum's (God bless her soul) influence as one of her favourite songs was "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling" which she used to sing to me when I was a wee lass.

Looking forward to coming here more often and getting to know the wonderful people of this community.
Cheers smile.gif

PS we have family ties in Taichung, Taiwan and somewhere on the border of Tibet and the Xinjiang-Ungyar region of China. So Celtic blood runs far and wide!!!

For a reading of many histories of slavery , go to Google, type in slavery history, you will find many resources there. From ancient thru today.

No doubt slavery pre-dates recorded history.

It is recorded in Babylonian times, in Persia, ancient Egypt and Greece and Roman territory.

Anthony Bourdain on the tTravel Channel was just on again this past week with his Ireland trip and Road Bowling. It was filmed down in County Cork.
