This Millenium Present to the Fermanagh Roots Mailing List is the
idea of John B Cunningham. Read all about John here
John posted this to the list in
late November 1999.
I had a dream - sorry I had a thought - someone else had a dream - and the
thought was that the hardy regulars of the Fermanagh List might consider giving each other
a small Fermanagh genealogical Millennium present. I have a little GenStuff file into
which I paste all the little bits and pieces which come up on this and other lists -
poems, unusual sources, an emigrant letter, a good news genealogical find, a short study
of some genealogical source, a chance find to share with others, etc. I have learned and
had enjoyment from all of them. Perhaps we could all contribute a little known item such
as an unpublished graveyard recording or a family listing from a particular parish
register, an emigrant tale - anything with a Fermanagh genealogical relevance - things we
have done ourselves rather than a simple cut and paste from somewhere although this can be
useful if it is part of an analysis or study.
John's idea was met with great
enthusiasm and the pages that follow are Millenium presents to all members of the
Fermanagh mailing list.
