Post and News ~~ March Edition

On March 16, 2004, our club will be celebrating our


Each year at this time we ask that our members pay their dues!! Don't worry, they are FREE. All we ask is that you post your Surnames that you are searching for. Just post the information on the message board, with as much information as you have. I will then post the surnames in the database and also on the Surname Page in our club library. For many of our new members who don't know, our Surname Page is set up so that when search engines are looking for names that someone has posted they will find that surname on our page.
Please remember that if your name is not on that page, the search engines can not find it!!!!


We would like to welcome our newest member to CJ's Genealogy Corner.

ST. PATRICK'S DAY - March 17

Here are some Irish links I found that might be of interest:

Irish Ancestors/Surnames

The Irish Times, Ireland's Online Newspaper

Irish Family History

Heraldry in Ireland

By: Pat (Ukbrithoosier)

This month we are spotlighting Art's ( celt46a ) research stoppers. He has two brickwalls:

1) Finding a record such as a census that links Susan Philip to her two children, William Philip and daughter Grace Nicol McNereny Philip.

2) Linking Thomas McNereny and Susan Philip.

Art has quite a bit of information that due to limited space I have condensed. If anyone finds something and perhaps needs more information please Email Art at: aphillips@telus.net

Briefly, the family came from Aberdeen, Scotland. William was born 12 August 1884 and died 5 August 1961 in Vancouver, B.C.
Williams sister Grace was born 17 July 1879, Aberdeen, Scotland. Both siblings were illegitimate.
Susan Philips married James Davidson in 1902.

Thomas McNereny was a gardener from Ireland and married Ann Marr by whom he had 6 children.

Thank you so much to everyone for the time spent searching - even one seemingly unimportant bit of information gathered may lead to the wall coming down, if not now perhaps eventually.
