    There is no record of derryman at all.
    Maybe I am not even mongrel.
    Perhaps Alien.

    Apparently so, I could be mistaken but they were records of the British government of the day where as this is a collection of post independence, births etc and of pre 20th century Church records

    Considering they won't be on line until 5:30 pm I'm not surprised.

    I think we'll allow you one non Gaelic ancestor yet still claim the title true Gael.

    That's includes British, Norman and/or alien.

    Genealogy only follows the male line so it is increasingly inaccurate with each passing generation - 50%, 25%, 12.5% and 6.25% after four generations and that's assuming an awful lot of legitimacy from an awful lot of women.

    Still, it's a fun thing and the tourists love it.

    Don't mind this hair-splitting. If you are Irish, come into the parlour

    Well said - we're all pigs from the same litter.
    Infamy, infamy, they've all got it infamy!

    I may finally learn who built me.
