  1. Dear Catherine,

    I am from a local County Clare newspaper and I am really interested in your family story. I was wondering if we could talk a bit more?

    The National Famine Commemoration is being held in Kilrush, Co Clare this month and seeing as there is so much family around etc it might be a good idea to get your story out and try find some more family links as I know you’ve previously tried to reach out.

    Best wishes,


    • Thanks for your message Bebhinn… I actually “like”/ follow the Kilrush Famine facebook page 🙂 I’ll email you direct to have a chat, so to speak…

  2. Hi, Catherine – many thanks for your lovely comments on my blog anniversary. You asked about how I had written my family history narratives. . I began writing up my mother’s Danson family research many years ago and have basically stuck with the same format – so it all very simply done on Word with photographs pasted in. I am not a great whizz with computer graphics etc. and have only a basic knowledge of Publisher, so have not gone down that route. . After each chapter I have added the relevant documents on that person such as census returns etc. I feel it makes more sense to have them at that point rather than all at the end in an appendix. I am a great believer in adding the social context to our ancestors’ lives as well, so have included something on where they lived and worked and also added a timeline of national, international and local events, inventions, developments etc.

    I get the finished work spiral bound at a local printers who make a very good job. It is amazing what a difference it makes to see the final work bound and overall I am pleased with them The blog came after I had started the narratives, so I had a lot of the material already written. I am now aiming to pull together the Personal Memories posts on my blog into a similar book, hopefully for the interest of my daughter and granddaughter. . But again I am just copying and pasting and making minor changes to the formatting. . The problem is knowing when to come to a halt and decide it is finished.. , So at the moment it is just in a report file, where I do not need to punch holes etc. I know that Pauleen (Cassmob) did something similar but in a more sophisticated electronic way in compiling a Book from her Blog, . I hope this helps and do keep me in touch on how you are writing up your material, beyond your blog. Thank you again for all your support. .
    Happy Researching and Happy Writing! Susan . .
