Newsletter for November, 2010

Visitors to the website are still in the range of 2,000 a week (it went over 3,000 one week in October and hit 2700 visits in another week). Visitors are logging in from all over the world with interest evenly split between the Moran Genealogy, the Celtic Connection and Aeroplanes Vought almost evenly at a third a piece. The other areas suchs as in Miscellany are visited less often. We continue to update each section as we can. This newsletter and the Status Page is where you should go to note any changes in the past month or for information on what is currently in the works.

To my Dutch friends of Crossmolina, Edmond and Aine Van Estrik- my computer crashed and one of the things lost was your e-mail address. Please contact me so I can respond and regain your address.

The Celtic Connection to Texas History

Celtic Units Of the American Civil War has been updatedwith the addition of two regimental flags.


More pictures posted on the Moran Websites, there are some new Coats Of Arms, and a map showing the line in Mayo where Cromwell's Settlement Act was in effect (on the other side, East, of Carrowkeel was posted last month.

Some parts of the family are asking for their genealogy to be taken off the website because of identity theft issues. This is done at their request at their immediate family level with a notice "Removed at family request".

My Father's eulogy from Monsignor Tucek has been added.


There are two sides to every story and in my direct family's case that other side of the Moran family is the Traynor family. Of course this changes as you go back or forward in generations, but in the case of my Father, his mother's maiden name is Traynor. That makes all my Father's brothers and sisters (13) and their children, and their children, etc. related as well. Kate Sullivan, daughter of my Father's sister Kae Moran (Sullivan), has built a website showing the Traynors and all the allied families. It has gotten to be quite a genealogical database and has provided many finds including the interrelationship of several of the same families over the generations and finding a large number of cousins in New Zealand. Kate Sullivan, daughter of Jim Sullivan and Kae MORAN Sullivan, who put together the TRAYNOR family genealogy. can be reached at this e-mail address:kategalway@yahoo.com That site is http://www.tribalpages.com the username is "Traynor" for the ID ( password), please e-mail Kate.
