Be sure to pour yourself a cup of tea and sit down with this colorful and insightful new publication. I discovered the June issue of this online magazine through the County Cavan facebook group.  The pages on Cork Genealogy, Tourism and Heritage drew me in. If you are planning a trip to County Cavan read these pages for an overview of the county and links to attractions. If you want to do research while you are there you will find an extensive list of resources and links to Cork libraries, archives, cemeteries, etc. I plan to look closely at each of these links in searching for my Mullane and Sullivan ancestors. [The July issue focuses on Kerry.]

From the pages on County Cork in the June issue, I wandered through pages on the Irish DNA mapping project and the 2013 Gathering plans.  Kevin McCormack shares research tips and links to terrific web sites, including his own Irish research blog and the Irish Lives Remembered site [Besides the magazine this site includes genealogy links, a list of genealogists, heir search and forums.]. Read about Annie Moore, the first immigrant to be processed through Ellis Island. A statue to Annie stands in Cobh Harbour.  Learn about the Historic Graves Project, working to protect, record and share information carved into the ancient tombstones and Celtic crosses across Ireland. Pages showing Cork Books & Genealogy Books make me itch to order new research materials.

The July issue includes articles on Irish work houses, one name studies and Irish convicts in Australia. I found this online magazine to be entertaining and educational. Get that cup of tea ready and explore it for yourself.

We just wrapped up the Irish Festival here in Miramichi, NB Canada. It has been running for the last 20 years or so. Draws quite a crowd. This year the Mayor and Deputy Mayor of Monahan, Ireland was in attendance!

What a treat! Sounds like a bit of Ireland here in the USA.
