FROM DOMINIC LEE


" some of you are coming to my William Orpen talk/AV in Collins Barracks on Sat and I look forward to meeting you.
There is pay parking in Collins Barracks or the LUAS stops at the door – Museum station. www.museum.ie

It's a lovely theatre and the museum is worth a visit. Includes the restored Asgard Yacht used in the Howth gun-running which was witnessed by William Orpen who rented a summer house there – The Cliffs. "

(Borrowed from John D. Reid)


"Choose your favourites from a galaxy of stars from the English-speaking genealogy world. Let them know you appreciate their contributions.

It will mean you can change your vote by signing in again with your account.

Tell your friends. Ask them to vote, suggest who to vote for and multiply the power of your vote.

What surprises will there be in this the fifth year of the survey?"


I was honoured to be nominated over last years and to be included in such great company. I was absolutely delighted and surprised to be awarded Silver last year... thank you to all who made that possible.


To quote John again...

"Rockstar genealogists are those who give "must attend" presentations at family history conferences or as webinars, who when you see a new family history article or publication by that person, makes it a must buy. If you hang on their every word on a blog, podcast or newsgroup, or follow avidly on Facebook or Twitter they are likely Rockstar candidates."

That covers a wide field.. please do take a few moments to vote.  Thank you.
