Thank you Maggie for starting this forum up!
The Scot and Irish have more in common than they think --or are willing to admit!

Thanks Falachaidh!!  I consider myself the caretaker of Ireland. :D  Yes! Scotland and Ireland have alot in common.  I think it is similar to relatives who don't claim some of their kin.  I love it all!! (h)  (h)

I found some Irish Blessings and thought I post them here:

May God grant you always:
A sunbeam
  to warm you,
A moonbeam
  to charm you,
A sheltering Angel
  so nothing can harm you,
Laughter to cheer you
Faithful friends near you
And whenever you pray
Heaven to hear you



May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind alwas be at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
  the rains fall soft upon your fields
  and until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand




May you bee poor
in misfortune
Rich in blessings
Slow to make enemies
Quick to make friends
But rich or poor,
Quick or slow
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day on

:)

The Children Of My Love

Oh my love how far you have fallen,
My eyes weep for the children long fallen away,
The precious souls of my Life surrendered to the grave
Oh how painfully true the children the children of my love.
They say how could I but they understand not
For I must, for there own sake I must,
Here a little there a little for in-between are the lost
Never to be found for your sake.

With no light to find I must only bind for the sake of mine!

I feel for those who fail to submit they go on in their way
as if forever, they see the light for darkness and the
darkness for light they wonder to the grave of no hope,
Were no light shines and no life finds.

Thought my father rebukes in the name of love
I must destroy in the name of love
For the harvest is ripe yet it rots before me!

                                     In Jesus Name, Amen.  


                                   R, A, O'Nial  -  Wizz!


--------------------
Jer 31:18-19
Thou hast chastised me, and I was chastised, as a bullock unaccustomed to the yoke: turn thou me, and I shall be turned; for thou art the LORD my God. Surely after that I was turned, I repented; and after that I was instructed, I smote upon my thigh: I was ashamed, yea, even confounded, because I did bear the reproach of my youth.

::viking You are so right. I would love to find my real father, even though I was not the product of a love match.

When I started looking into my family's history, I found many skeletons in the closet. I didn't let that stop me though.  I figured they were as human as we are now.  They just tried to hide their sins more.

I would love to trace my family's history but I know I'd run into a lot of dead ends. My parents don't know very much and all my grandparents are dead :( . In fact, the only things I know about my family history are that my great-Grandpa Maxwell was adopted, my great-Grandma Maxwell's maiden name was McLoughlin, and my family name was originally Fangmann. Oh well.

May the Irish hills caress you.
May her lakes and rivers bless you.
May the luck of the Irish enfold you.
May the blessings of Saint Patrick behold you.

MDF, Do you have any great aunts or uncles living?  If you do maybe they can give you some info.  Alot of older folks don't like to talk about their kith and kin.  When my husband was researching his family tree, he went to his mother to get info on  her relatives,she politely told him, "it wasn't any of his business."  That didn't stop him though, he just found another source of information to let the skeletons out.  :D

I'm glad that your interested in your family history, not many young gals and guys are.  I know right now, my three daughters could care less about their great and their great greats!   Don't give up, keep looking and find a relative who likes to talk!

Slamedbear,  I find the very same thing happening to me when I hear the pipes aplaying that wonderful song Amazing Grace.  If I ever have the privilege to visit the land of my dreams (Ireland), I'm sure the answer is awaitin me!
Have a good day!

Maggie, the answer to your question, sadly, is no :(. By the time my parents had me and my sister, most couples their age had school-age children, so we never got to meet very many of my folks' aunts & uncles. I only met two great aunts and one great uncle before they died.

Dia dhaoibh!

Ba maith liom mise a chur in aíthne dhaoibh.
Is Rüdiger an t-ainm atá orm agus tá mé i mo chonaí i mbaile
Velbert i Ghearmáin. Is baile beag i nGearmáin Velbert.
Biónn mé ag cluich mo giotár agus mo bodhrán go minic.
Is maith liom ceol le Runrig, Capercaillie, Tannahill Weavers,
agus Clannad agus cúpla ceoltóir eile.
Agus thathníonn an clár-cinn anseo go mór liom.

Slán agus go n-éirí an t-ádh libh,

Roidsear


(Gabh mo leighscéal for the grammar mistakes... ;) )
-------------[TRANSLATION]-------------
God with you!

I'd like to introduce myself.
My name is Rüdiger and I live in the town of Velbert in Germany.
Velbert is a small town in Germany.
I often play guitar and bodhrán. I like the music of
Runrig, Capercaillie, Tannahill Weavers, and Clannad, and some
other musicians.
And I like the website here very much.

Bye, and may the luck rise with you,

Rüdiger
