I am not after a look up but to whole heartedly agree with your comments to
encourage people to stay awhile. I have had some marvellous help from this
group and it is usually from ones that keep pretty quite and just help
others in the background.

I have only one of them at my FHC. 0856060 which
covers 1848-1852, as there was a Michael Pickett on
it. He was not mine, but should you find a name in the
lookups being done and order the film you will find
interesting information on the individual.
A standard entry looks something like this -

1821, Donaghmore, listed in the Townland of Donaghmore, Co Meath, PLU of
Notes of the census taker/observations, or however they phrased the column
"About the center of this parish (Donaghmore) are the ruins of an old Church
with a burial grounds well enclosed with an iron gate and at the easta end
of the Church? not sure of the word station an old round tower in poor
the entrance to which is a (sic) least 12 feet above the earth. "
I found the Matt McGinniss family in Chamberstown, age 45, a laborer, with
sons Patt 17, John 14, daughters Jane 11 and Mary 9. In the same place I
found the several Reilly's (Francis and Margaret and children Margaret and
Cath; Richard and Ann and children Margaret,Cath, Anne and Eliza). Also
several McInleer families - Pat McInleer 62 a farmer, Jane wife 55, David
18, Matth 16, Patt 14, Mary 25, Anne 22 and Jane 10, and next door to them
wass Margaret McInleer 40, widow, farmer, John 26, laborer, Chris son 20
James 11 son and Margaret Goggins, 17, House servant.
In nearby Ladyrath, Rathkenny, Lower Meath wass this family, # 6, Nicholas
Lamb 25, Margaret wife 26, James 4 son and Mary 1 daughter, and living with
them were Thomas Bartley 13, Joseph Bartley 10 and Christian Bartley female,
age 14, all "pauper children". I found many entries for paupers, living
there in the county. There were other McInleer families nearby - # 11, John
McInleer 45, laborer, James 12, Michl 7, Chris 1, and dau Cath 9; # 12
James McInleer 45, Margaret wife 45, Chas son 15, Michael 14, John 12, James
4, Thomas 1, Catherine 13 and Margaret 10. Many families named
"Carry", and Trainor and Mohan. There were many other McGinniss families
and Tiernans. Also Powderly names and Plunkett, and Smyth and McCann.
One of my friends used this film and reported excitedly to me that she had
found a slew of Pickett names on it but they turned out to be Plunketts!!!!
Patt McGinniss married a Carry girl, Jane, and they came over in 1851.
Patt's brother in law was a Reilly. Some of the McG family ended up in
Wallingford and some of them headed off to Wisconsin. The Trainor girls
married McGinniss boys, and they came to Wallingford too. Bryan Reilly
did as well. As did the Tiernans, and the Patrick and Mary McInleer
family. I have an extensive family history done on this family. In my
to research all of my names (Kennedy,Lucas,Sullivan,Usher,O'brien, Pickett,
Flynn, Conlin, Radigan,Hester, Mann, Duggan, Donnelly, Cunningham)
I decided to work up histories of the Irish families from my home town to
see if any of my names intermingled. They did not, but as I said, I have
a very good history of the McInleer family if anybody is seeking them,
even down to a 90+ year old cousin in the family who is living in
But none of this ever yielded my families. Ii really liked those McInleers
The small town of Wallingford, VT, was mostly a farming community but there
were two small hand tool manufacturing plants that popped up in the 1800's -
the True Temper (made rakes, hoes, etc.) and American Manufacturing Co.
Some of my family members worked there.
All of my ancestors came from Ireland between 1840-1867. I have varying
amounts of data on each of my family names. Most of us know that we can't
really do justice to any of them if we try to research all at the same time,
and so for some time I have concentrated on my Pickett family from Cork.
I did not start doing this research until after my father had died, and
were none left in the family to ask questions of. In a small Catholic
in Dorset VT I found a death record for Michael Pickett, who died in 1901,
the earliest Pickett that I can find, and it lists his parents are Michael
and Marguerite/Margaret Flynn of County Cork. I have had contact with the
Mallow Heritage Center and Cloyne is out, and was advised to consider
Cork and Ross. To that end I have ordered and have on permanent loan
at the LDS the 14 available volumes in the O'Kief series. I extracted every
Pickett name on the list with the exception of a few very early ones. No
sign of them anywhere. I have tried to use the surname distribution report
from the Casey films for 1851 to pinpoint likely areas, and correlate them
any tidbits of data I have found, and still no luck. I was told that at the
of the Tithes there was a Michael Pickett in Cork, in the Mallow/Lodgee
area, but have not done anything yet with that, frankly for lack of knowing
how to proceed.
How I wish there was an 1821 census for Cork to use as I did this one.
I went to the LDS site and found there are snippets of Creagh, Aghadown,
Drinagh and Lismore that are listed as 1841 Cork remnants (did not quite
sound right and I did not check the locations out yet on Sean Ruad's site)
and then there is the Josephine Masterson (sp?) book with 1851 remnants.
I have yet to buy that. I dont say this to be negative about the book, but
wish that I could find the remnants available on microfilm so that I could
see it for myself. I guess I am a doubting Thomas unless I can confirm or
deny on my own.
Hope springs eternal, however, and maybe I will find Michael Pickett
eventually. In the meantime I will have learned a great deal of Irish
that is a wonderful thing for me.

Vermont has some real "hot beds" of Irish settlers. In Northfield the
headquarters for the Vermont Central RR was there in the the mid-1800s as well
as abandoned farms, slate quarries, and in nearby Barre, granite quarries.
There are 2 Catholic graveyards, one of them, the older, is full of Irish, a
great deal from Kerry, Cork, and Clare. Not only did Donahue brothers settle
there but Doherty sisters, McCauliffes, Lynch siblings, McCarty, McCarthy,
Kelly, Sploid (Sployd), Hurley, Flinn, Flood, Doney, to name just a few. The
thing that hurts is to see all the old marble markers, many which have parent
info and/or counties of birth on them being destroyed by the acid rain and the
information being lost. In the case of my family, in 20 years the info has
vanished - but we recorded it before it was gone. The gravestones are the only
thing we had that told us they had come from Glenflesk and connected one of the
brothers to the others (his parents were on the gravestone - not in the vital
records). All the oral history had become extremely distorted.
just in case this is of use to someone.

: and thhat goes for photographs that are copyrighted!!
If you are suggesting that my recommendation of a website that had a nice
selection of photographs of Ireland was somehow tainted because they have
a copyright notice then you are barking up the wrong tree. I was not
suggesting to anyone that they ake those photos and use them on their
website, or in some commercial application. I simply said that I have
downloaded some of them to use as wallpaper on my desktop. That is the
electronic equivalent of cutting a pretty picture out of a magazine and
taping it on your wall.
As for the TINSTAAFL Boston Globe remark, if I can find something I need
during the time their archive is searchable for free, and it induces me to
later become a subscriber, then we have both won.
Got any other axes you'd like ground?

But their web page DOES state:
"Users of this web site may use photos for personal travel planning
purposes and personal non-commercial educational projects."
which certainly falls within the category of my use. If I did not have a
pretty picture of Ireland on my desktop to remind me of where I plan to go
on my vacation, I doubt I could make it through the workday.

I do not "operate a non-profit association". I happen to be the webmaster
for the website of the Irish Ancestral Research Association. I do not
speak for them in any official capacity, nor was I using the TIARA
signature block in the response in question. And if you want to try and
claim I am using the name of a trademarked character, i.e. "Dennis the
Menace", you'll have to speak to my mother because she swears that Hank
Ketcham got the idea from me in the first place.
