Here are my favourite blog posts from this past week.
The NLI Blog had a post called Hidden History written by Eimear Walsh a NLI Manuscript Student. She is working on the papers for the Headfort Estate in County Meath. The Taylour family left a lot of material. She found that some letters were written by people who sounded like they were children but were not in Burke’s Peerage, Baronetage and Knightage. She did a little research and found the answer. She even found a connection to a Governor General of Canada.
Pue’s Occurrences The Irish History Blog had a post entitled Living at the edge of the world by Kevin O’Sullivan. He examines the question how did they live here.
There is a new blog called TheWildGeese.com: Irish Genealogy And Family History which looks like it could be interesting.
Are there any postings in the last week that you think need to be on this list? Let me know in the comments below.
