How my 3x great-grandmother was involved in the Celestina Christmas scandal: https://rebelhand.wordpress.com/2015/01/18/a-christmas-tale-pt-3-baby-celestina-and-the-harringtons/

(Not a Delaney ancestor, but worth a read, I hope!)

Researching your Irish roots? This could be good news:

'The National Archives of Ireland is expected to release online their collection of Irish census fragments on Monday 28 April. We are not quite sure of the scope and depth of this release, but it certainly has the potential to be big news for anyone with Irish ancestors. Access will be free.'

I've been spring cleaning my blog, including a new header/banner: http://rebelhand.wordpress.com/2014/02/09/an-early-spring-clean/

Are there any other improvements you'd like to see?
