Newsletter for December, 2009

We actually had snow on the ground for a few hours for the second time in two consecutive years. That was a Southeast Texas weather first. It was also the earliest it ever snowed here. The snow came about 10 AM and was gone by Noon. It left behind some cold air for a few days which we all enjoyed because of the change from the usual.

The Celtic Connection to Texas History

There has been no new material posted in this section.

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.


This is the section that got all the work this time. Making the page menus and then filling them out. This is still an ongoing process. I have gotten much help on the TEMCO AIRCRAFT section. Thanks go out to the following people who helped personally or through previous articles they have had published:

Fred Maupin, Bud Davisson, Brian Baker, Trevor McTavish, Bill Latimer and Kevin Murphy.

The Vought Aeroplanes of the website was the original point of focus when I started ten years ago. But the interest seemed to be more in the genealogical work I was doing and then the Celtic connection to Texas history.

The biggest hold up was the possible copyright problems, but when I saw my book on a Russian website in its entirety together with the fact that the publisher has not paid me a nickel in more than ten years despite the fact it is still selling in bookstores around the country - I decide to expand the section.
