On the Road Again: Ireland and England

By the time you read these words, I should be in the air over the Atlantic.

I am first going to Ennis, County Clare, Ireland to offer a talk at the Clare Roots Society’s third International family history conference on the 23rd to 24th September 2016.. This year’s event has a theme of “Diaspora of the Wild Atlantic Way.” Details may be found at http://www.clareroots.org/index.php/meetings-a-lectures.

After spending a few days as a tourist in Ireland, I will jump over to England and will offer a talk at the 40th Anniversary Conference of the Devon Family History Society, University of St Mark and St John, Plymouth, England, on the following weekend, October 1st. Details on that event may be found at http://www.devonfhs.org.uk/agm.htm.

As usual, I will be traveling with a Chromebook computer along with other gadgets that should keep me in touch with the newsletter. Connectivity should not be a problem but available time is usually the biggest impediment. You probably will see fewer articles posted here than normal in the next few days. However, I do hope to post a few new articles during the conferences.

I’ll be back home in a couple of weeks, on October 4.


Sounds more leisurely than your usual trips. Good! Enjoy yourself, Dick.


I hope you enjoy Ireland as much as I do! There’s beautiful countryside in Ireland’s west 🙂

    Agreed! Tonight I am in County Clare in western Ireland. I saw gorgeous scenery in the countryside here when driving in from the Shannon airport. I’ll be out tomorrow morning visiting the Moher Cliffs that I have seen before only in pictures. Then I’ll drive to Bunratty Castle in the afternoon for touring and a medieval banquet in the evening. So far, so good!

Enjoy your stay in Ennis — I hope you come across some SEERY families with which I have not YET been able to link to my Australian Ancestors. On a trip from Australia my wife and I stayed in Ennis accommodation (previously a Church) where we were well looked after, making our trip most memorable
