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

Thank you
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.
Cheers,

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!

Cheers,
Lainey

RE: Links
Where would we be without rules!

My reply:

Everyone would be doing just what they wanted to do with the website.

I understand "why" you did the links but, at the same time, Find A Grave doesn't want them.

I have seen many time a copy and paste from Wikipedia and stating the source at the end....even Find A Grave has done that on a few Famous memorials.

Now you know. Don't remember the name on the memorial now to tell you.

Thank you!
Thank you for all the work on the cemeteries in Ireland.

I see that you posted outside links in some of your bios.

Just want you know what the guidelines say about that:

"Links to other websites or email addresses are not allowed within any memorial."

Hello John, I was delighted to see your post for Cornelius Murphy. He and his wife Ellen are my 3rd Great Grandparents. Their tombstone appears to be in the shape of a shield. Do you know what it may have signified? Also might you be able to tell me who would be the local genealogist in that area? I am planning my first trip to Ireland in April 2017 and would love to know more about my family. Cheers, Judy
