Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am an amateur genealogist, living in Dublin, Ireland.

I am particularly interested in the Pigott and Edgeworth families of Ireland and their descendants.
The graves of Irishmen who fought in WW1 & WW2 are also of interest.

"Forget the dead you've left,
they will not follow you,
The vagabond who is rapping at your door,
is standing in the clothes that you once wore"
Taken from
"It's all over now, Baby Blue" - Bob Dylan.

One day, we will all become Fallen Gravers

If you are looking for a death in Ireland after 2006, can I recommend

Mannix Smith
Hi John,
Mannix Smith (1921-1994 buried in Dublin) was a relative of mine. I am in the US and would like to have more info on Mannix's ancestors. Hoping you can help me or direct me to a family member.

Also went to college in the 60s with a Pigut.

Eugene John McSwiney grave
hi john,
we think the grave you identified as that of Captain Eugene John McSwiney is incorrect. The plot for that McCarthy family (his mother's family) is directly across the path.

Martin John Pender
John, so grateful you took a picture of my 1st cousin twice removed, Martin John Pender. Would love to find any of his descendants. He was born in Rossmore just west of Carlow town, the son of Patrick Pender and Mary Ann Farrell Pender. Served in HMS during WW1 in France. Besides Nora, he was married to Mary Foley, and Kathleen Tobin.

Hi John,
Greetings from India!
I am an amateur historian from Bengaluru, India researching on the British officers who made a significant contribution to the state of Karnataka, India. Your contributions on this portal gave me good information on Major General RS Dobbs, who was the Collector of my home District- Tumakuru. Thank you. If you ever happen to visit this part of India, please do connect with me.

RE: Samuel Shiels
Thank you, John. It's so pleasant to receive your positive feedback.

I visited your lovely city for two weeks in November of 2013. I had a wonderful time. One of my favourite aspects of Dublin is its walkability. The climate too was far better than my home city. I'm descended from both Catholic and Protestant families from both sides of the border. I visited many of the counties within the Republic and a few in NI. I was amazed at the friendliness of the Republic and its citizenry. I'd highly recommend visiting the Republic to anyone travelling! I'm looking forward to visiting Dublin again soon.

Thanks again, John!
