If you are interested in early (1590+ to 1760) French Canada Genealogy, Tanguay's research & texts are invaluable. I have recently revised the ManyRoads download for these documents. They are very worthwhile and will almost certainly fit on your PC... no-charge. wink emoticon Please spread the word...

Over the years I have heard many interesting radio programmes  produced by Torquil MacLeod http://uk.linkedin.com/pub/torquil-macleod/10/a58/991/en  . I wonder if he is named after one of the two 15-year old boys who died at Gallipoli   
Among the casualties in the WW1 battle of Gallipoli were British schoolboy sailors, sent to war in obsolete ships.

Irish Civil Records : Birth.  How to find references and order photocopies
Civil registration of Irish Birth, Marriage and Death records in Ireland began in 1864 (note: a huge number of people were not registered in the early years even though it was law that they should be). Civil registration of non-Catholic marriages began in 1845.

If you are interested in the history of French Canada, I have just uploaded several dozen new texts for both the 1837 Patriot Rebellion & the Expulsion of the French (aka. Grand Derangement) from Acadia (Acadie) in 1755.

DNA- Gene (ealogy) - a question or two.
The following is a message I have just sent to my Y-IRL mail list.
"I am a Scientist by training, my Ph.D., from the National University of Ireland, was acquired as the result of a thesis I worked on in University College Cork when in the Zoology Department there.
I used to joke that there wasn't much difference between what I did as Zoologist and once I turned to genealogy because I've worked on describing new species, that is animals which have just been discovered, as in we have just found them, so I described a few and so, until my descriptions are challenged adn changed, my surname will remain beside their Latin name showing that I was the person who described them.
Genealogy is not much different from that, sure it isn't?
Back just before I gave up working as a Zoologist, genetics was beginning to come to importance. Today, it's incredible the way I see people talking about how they are this that or the other re markers or genomes or some such - and yes, my wording here does sound ignorant and it is. BUT my ignorance is based on the acadaemic knowledge I had re genetics and the animals I worked with.
Now - today the world and his mother are into DNA, genetics and please don't think I am negating that. The thing is, I can't get it out of my head the kind of numbers we had to have to work with in order for statistics to be good. I honestly in my head can't see the kind of 'numbers' we would have ended as Scientists working on the genetics of our animals happening in the real world, as in the world of humans trying to match things up genetically. That is not meant to sound negative, it is just me being logical as per my training and my scientific experience of genetics.
So 
1. To me, the whole DNA thing that I see on the internet re genealogy is illogical.
Outside of that
2. What good does it do you?
Do you find family because of DNA - NOT family as regards someone else searching, do you - or have any of you found living family in Ireland as a result of DNA testing?
Please and thanks.

The origin of the Irish National Anthem. Amhrán na bhFiann”” (The Soldier’s Song) was composed in 1907 by Peadar Ó Cearnaigh (Kearney) and by Patrick Heaney. Both became members of the Oliver Bond 1798 Club and it was for this club that the pair of them wrote the song.... It became the marching song of the Irish Volunteers, replacing such older songs as T.D. Sullivan’s ‘God save Ireland’ and Thomas Davis’ ‘A Nation once again’
