Never Travelled on a Train

Women dies at 94

STANTHORPE, Monday.— After having lived in Australia for 73 years, during which she never travelled on a railway train, and after living in Stanthorpe 66 years, during which she never left the town, Mrs. Ann Gleeson, aged 94, died at the week-end. She was born at Newmarket, County Clare, Ireland, and came to Australia in 1865. Soon afterwards she took up a position at Glenelg station, 55 milesnorth-west of Stanthorpe, and in 1867 married Mr. Gleeson, who was a blacksmith at Pikedale station, Warwick. In 1872 they went to Stanthorpe. Mrs. Gleeson is survived by a grown-up family and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

 

  And this one reported but no mention of Ireland. 

FRAWLEY, Michael Born Co Clare Died 16 January 1889

(paper said Thursday which would have been 17 January)

Warwick Argus Saturday 19 January 1889

FATAL ACCIDENT.-A fatal accident occurred at Stanthorpe on Thursday last, the victim being Mr. Michael Frawley, of the Severn River, and formerly a resident of Warwick. It is stated that Frawley was driving a horse team with a load of wood into town, when he got crushed between the wheel of the dray and a tree. His son, who was with him when the accident occurred, at once proceeded to Stanthorpe for medical assistance, but on his return with the doctor Frawley was found to be dead.

CLARE ROOTS SOCIETY September Meeting 2012



 
Clare Roots Society
September Meeting
 
 
The first event of the new season by Clare Roots Society will be held in the Civic Room, Drumbiggle on Thursday 20 September 2012 at 8 pm.  It will be run on a Questions & Answers basis.
Have you hit the famous brick wall in your family history research?
Do you know where to seek further information? 
Clare Roots are inviting you to submit your problems and queries to secretary@clareroots.org in the next few days.
These will be examined by a panel of experienced genealogists. Answers and advice will be given at the meeting.
Questions will also be taken by the panel from the floor on the night but a little prior notice will help to formulate more comprehensive answers.
 
 
 
At the recent Genealogy for Beginners talks given in the Clare Library branches all over Clare by Clare Roots members during Heritage Week, the need for help and advice in research was identified and it is hoped that the meeting on 20 September will go some way in providing that help.
 
 
 
All are welcome. There is a cover-charge of €5 to the meeting for non-members.
 
We also welcome submissions for various subjects members may be interested in a future talk on and also if any of our members would like to present their own family history on another night. We have heard some great family histories in the past.

HERITAGE WEEK IRELAND 2012

JULY/AUGUST are Heritage months internationally... varying from place to place. How will it affect you?

 *   It is a great time to visit your local library, or archives of family history societies. Feel free to let me know what is happening in your area, or what you have attended or are planning to. We love to share...

*   You will also find that there are some great discounts available for various subscription sites... don't dismiss them if perhaps your sub isn't due... contact them and let them know that you would like to renew as of your normal date, but would appreciate the discount offered to the newcomers... Of course, this won't work if you have just signed up with a great discount, but if you are a loyal subscriber, they may offer you the same to keep you. After all, in this economic climate, we all need to save that extra dollar ...



From County Clare....

This week is National Heritage Week and there is a fantastic programme on all over the country in a range of categories from archaeology to coastal and marine to historic buildings to local history and wildlife. Check out www.heritageweek.ie for more information on what's on near you.

CLARE ROOTS SOCIETY CONFERENCE 2013 DETAILS

Please click on image to enlarge...


FLOUR AND GOOD EYESIGHT


A BAG of flour maybe be useful for many things but can it help preserve history? Well that’s exactly what the Clare Archaeological and Historical Society used, along with the stalwart work of its members, to help with the painstaking transcription of burial monuments at Kilraghtis graveyard, which is in the Doora-Barefield parish.

Mary Kearns of the society explained the efforts made by the volunteers to gather this fascinating information. “A bag of flour is what we used brush into the stones to get the inscriptions. The flour, good eyesight, endless patience, good weather and going back again and again. It can be exhausting going back and forth but the information is so interesting.”

This Sunday, as part of Heritage Week, the society will be launching a new booklet on Kilraghtis Church and graveyard in the very spot where the transcriptions were made.

The booklet is available for €3 through

P.S. wonder if that was self raising flour? It could make the task easier perhaps...



A hint from Paddy Waldron... talcum powder doesn't turn to glue when it rains...

VALE ....DON KELLY passionate genealogist


We, who are passionate about genealogy, can't help but become involved with others of a like mind, often stretching ourselves, our time, further than we thought was possible.

One man, who seemed not to have boundaries, recently passed away..
he was Don Kelly, of Portland Oregon...

you may not have known Don personally, but many of you will have read
his name and benefited from his work...

For me, the main connection was through Ireland Genealogy Projects, better known as IGP.






A note from Christina Hunt of Ireland Genealogy Projects Archive:

I am sad to report that Don Kelly, who has managed Ireland Genealogy Projects since its inception, has passed away.
He will be sorely missed.
Don Kelly, R.I.P. 1934-2012.

Allow me to quote again from Christina Hunt from IGP.... also a passionate genealogist.

" I just know he was really nice, loyal and good hearted. "


Don wasn't one for a fuss, so we will just say Thank You on behalf of the many whose lives he touched, knowingly, or unknowingly, and leave you with just a few reminders of the many things he was involved in.

May you find all the answers you were looking for, Don.
R.I.P.





Hood River County Oregon TTTP Genealogy Project

We are a genealogy group dedicated to providing free genealogy to researchers in all 50 states. We will also have special projects that will include more information to aid in your research.
Our sites will contain a variety of information so feel free to return often to check them out!
