<flipper> Suebee, b/4 you get too involved with Ireland, make sure you've got all your towns squared away for here, as well as names dates, etc, for here otherwise it gets very cofusing when working Ireland.....
<chirho> all the things marked "NEW" on the Guide page, Crill

<chirho> When Suebee?
<chirho> LOTS of ships
<Suebee> I don't know what port at this time
<flipper> that's the best way to find out where they came from over there
<chirho> year?
<Suebee> about or between 1850-1855
<Suebee> when is a Irish boy/man at magority?
<chirho> LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS of ships! New Orleans and the Carolinas, too

<chirho> records
<Mugs> Is it 21?
<flipper> you could join 1-2 of the ships lists and they may be able to help you out
<Crill> When his father says he is, Suebee.
<Crill> :]
<Suebee> what if the father dies when he is 12 and he has only his brothers?
<flipper> back then it was....
<chirho> NEED to know when (yr at least) and hopefully what port, should look up naturalizations.
<Crill> Hmmm . ..
* flipper whispers you have any starting questions also......?
<chirho> lots of orphans in New Orleans and New York at that time...
<Crill> I had one ancestor came over at 15 and set up as a farmer.

<flipper> hello pbg
* pbg Smiles :))
<Mugs> !MCW irishrov.mid
* chirho says last call for questions!
<Crill> Any sources for Irish aristocracy, do you know.
<flipper> as in royalty
<Suebee> from the #cert chat; everyone was mentioning about cemeteries in Ireland..are they on line
<Crill> Well, offshoots of royalty.
<chirho> as in soc.genealogy.medieval
<flipper> crill, let me quickly look for some addys
<Crill> Thanks, flip.
<chirho> Crill, do the same as withthe commoner, up the ladder, find the ship, and forward thence. :)
<pbg> could do a search on Irish Royalty??
<Crill> Dead ending there - trying to work backwards, chi.
<chirho> and take a look at our "OLD NAMES" page in fiannag
<Crill> Tried that, pbg. Just ran into an add for Debrett's Peerage.
<chirho> hehehe
* pbg Chuckles....;))
<pbg> actually you know there is no such thing as's a figment of someone's imagination..:))))
<Crill> Old family legend - Brandon side related to Tudors.
<flipper> now these aren't in general.....they are for the Buchanan family I'm searching....but you may find a side line.....
<chirho> Go Brit... soc.genealogy.british
<Crill> And Mary Tudor did marry a Charles Brandon.
<pbg> been reading how the rights of the lord created nothing but havoc? :(
<Crill> So would like something re Brandon line.
<Crill> no, pbg. Where?
<Crill> The famine, you mean.
<pbg> warwick list
<chirho> pbg, also mentioned on Scotland-GenWeb-L
<pbg> no...the lord had first right and often took it..:(
<Crill> OH!
<pbg> yes chirho..there as well
<flipper> these go back to 678 AD and 326 AD
<pbg> yup Crill..lots we have to learn yet..:( :))
<Crill> Thanks, flip. Might be helpful.
<Crill> Dear dear. Messing up our genealogy, pbg!
<flipper> Also,
<pbg> sure is..:)
<Crill> At least the "gene" part.
<pbg> good thing I'm more concerned with the living, huh? :))
<Crill> Always a good idea, pbg. . .
<pbg> can imagine it's sure playing havoc with those who think they are who they are not? :(
<flipper> if you can find Charlemagne in your line......found a site---don't take seriously---but it's fun to look at-----
* pbg Smiles :))
<flipper> line of descent from Adam and Eve to Charlemagne
<Crill> Charlemagne is in your line, flip? Neat.
<chirho> We also have the Irish line of descent from Adam and Eve to the Milesians
<pbg> read another on that....that french line had trouble as well...not all of the seigneurs where on the up and up...:(
<Crill> Now THAT's genealogy!
<chirho> and on OLD NAMES we come on down from the Milesians :)
<flipper> toofish/joelines/adamlou.htm
<pbg> apparently we all go back to the middle east somewhere's..can't remember just were tho right off the top of my head..
<Crill> Our Cruikshank family history starts that way, too. First there was Adam and Eve - then the Cruikshanks. Nobody else counts, apparently!
<pbg> any of you have any luck linking some of your lines so far?
<pbg> lol Crill..:))
<chirho> Back to 1500's on one, in Bavaria
<flipper> Yes, I have Fargallus, Monarch of Ireland...678 AD,Robert the Bruce, King of Scotland 1274 AD, cousin to James Buchanan, president,
<Crill> Definitely good stuff, flip. Love Rob the Bruce's castle.
<pbg> Good...make sure they are correctly linked..:))
<flipper> and a few more.....and these are the proven ones.... :)
<Crill> Feel like I should be tugging the forelock here, or something. . .
<pbg> well I came up to see if the cert class was still going....but alas...tooo late aGain..:(
<Crill> All we got is Henry XVIII, by legend only.
<Crill> And who wants to be related to HIM.
<pbg> so jumped in here....nice seeing you all..:)
<pbg> lol Crill..:)
<Crill> Yup, pbg. Were you working late?
<MathAce> night, all
<pbg> sure glad most of mine where walking quiet road..:)

*** Quits: Suebee (Leaving)
<pbg> Night suebee..
<Crill> Those are the best kind, pbg.
<flipper> Charlemagne, is for sure, just have 4 different routes to get to him.....illegit kids and legit one's between him and Robert the Bruce
<flipper> so now I'm trying to figure that out....doubt if I ever will :(
<pbg> good..:)
<Crill> Well, off to bed, too. G'night, all.
<chirho> Night Crill
<pbg> actually it wasn't the children but the minds of the society back then! Amazing, huh?
*** Parts: Crill (arlz@
<flipper> I did learn something in one of the last few days while digging about Charlemagne......
<pbg> sorry chirho..didn't mean to disrupt your apologies...winding down now..:))
<chirho> Enjoyed your being here pbg
<pbg> ? flipper
<flipper> they say that when there were illegit kids
<pbg> Tks chirho..:)
<flipper> that they would put "fitz" in front of the name ie...fitzgerald
<flipper> that way the child had the credit of the father but he was still separated
<chirho> fitz is another "son of" and not necessarily illegit
<pbg> hadn't heart that one flipper..tks for passing it along...who knows could be worth keeping in mind..:)
<chirho> like mac and o'
<flipper> I don't know how true this is....but I found it in 2 separate areas
<pbg> ahhhhhhhhhh there's another route
<pbg> been fortunate..haven't had any fritz yet
