Thinglink for video

By Jannet Walsh

I just tired out Thinglink, an app for adding links for photos and videos, on my video I shot last year in Seattle. Take a look and see if it will be helpful. I plan to use it for my online teaching at udemy.com.

Home to Knockanarroor – Pillowcase Photo
Missing photo gives hints to Irish history

I returned home to Knockanarroor, Ireland for the first time, but I have never been there before.

In April 2011, I traveled to Ireland, precisely where my Great-Great-Grandmother Ellen Brennan Foley, born May 15, 1820 in Killarney, Ireland, and died in Stillwater, Minnesota, lived in Knockanarroor Townland, pronounced “Knock-on-a-roar” in Irish Gaelic, meaning the hill of corn in English.

On a cold January 2011 day, a photograph, along with a hand-written card with hints of Ellen’s life, including her husband’s name, William Foley, were found tucked away in a pillow of treasures of my late grandmother Mary Jannet “Jennie” Foley Walsh, 1886 to 1985, of Murdock.

The unmarked country road my Irish roots were plucked from in the early 1840s, is located just east of the city of Killarney in County Kerry, in western Ireland. A milk lorry driver, a truck driver in the United States, Patrick “Pa” Brosnan of Muckross, in the Killarney area, pumping petro in the near by village of Barraduff agreed to guide me to the hidden location that is plain site.

Ellen’s parents, James Brennan and Mary Walsh, my great-great-great grandparents, from my grandmother’s family, called the townland home, as they worked the rented land consisting of what is referred to by residents as a “poorish land” of wetlands, surrounded by bogs. The peat or turf, decayed vegetation, is cut and dried for heating and cooking fuel today, just like my family did in the 1800s or earlier, with the smoke puffing out of cottages, producing a musty smell. My family most likely served as grooms, tending to the horses exchanged on the carriage route at the end of the road of Knockanarroor, on a major route to Killarney.

I traveled to Killarney in 1980, my late father, Martin J. Walsh Jr., in the 1950s, but it was not was not until 2011, I could say without a doubt Knockanarroor is home in Ireland for my family. My father and I traveled the same paths in the horse jaunting carts of what is called the old butter roads, the 1700s turnpike, but I might be the first to make the journey home to Knockanarroor.

I used hints from www.ancestry.com to stitch together my ancestral threads. Archivist Michael Lynch of Kerry Library, Ireland, along with free online Roman Catholic records from the Diocese of Kerry, www.irishgenealogy.ie, provided information that my family belonged to the Catholic Parish of Glenflesk, with Knockanarroor as their place of residence.

Although I did not find any living relatives in Ireland during my journey, learning about the people, their faith, village life and the beautiful Irish countryside, I was able to shine light on a period of obscurity in my family’s history.

My Great-Great Grandmother Ellen departed Knockanarroor, be it voluntary or forced, due to disease, food shortage or economic reasons. I returned Ireland to answer the questions of where my family roots were prematurely pulled from the Ireland.

Genealogy – Digging roots

Searching for your family’s roots takes a lot of digging.

Since moving back home to Minnesota in August 2010, I have started to scratch only the surface of finding branches on my family’s tree. As an undergraduate student at St. Cloud State University, I took a class on family history, and still have my paper I worked on, but have many missing links, but that’s normal for researching, I’m thinking.

With the help of family, friends and colleagues, I’ve been trying to put a few pieces together with the goal of tracking back information and relatives to the “old countries” in Europe, such as Ireland, Scotland, Luxembourg, Germany or other lands.

Network your root search
What’s that? If you fish with a net, you stand a better chance of catching more fish, than with a single fishing pole. You need to tell people you are searching for family connections, information, data, records and photographs. If no one knows you are searching, don’t expect too much success.

Blog your family search

I have found relatives by just posting and writing about my searching for family. It’s free and easy to do. You can write about what you know, stories, photos and connections you want to make. Start a blog today!

What info is there already?
If you have family that have already started their investigations in the past, see if they will share. As a warning, there could be errors in the reporting, so you will need to watch what you think might be the “gospel” about your family. An obituary listed my late Agnes (Walsh) Shopa as Sister Agnes Shopa, meaning a religious order sister or nun, originating from the funeral home when my father Martin J. Walsh died in 2008. My aunt was a sister and religious, but never a member of a religious order. The funeral home sent the obituary to the newspaper with the error, and can be found online. Please correct if you are following my Walsh family history.

Online search
There are many places you can go online to search. Here’s a link that can help you with 101 ways. Read more. . .

Have fun!
Finding facts and connecting with lost relatives, only you are not lost, is part of the fun! As a child I heard my mother talk about various relatives, now these very same people and their children are emailing as a result of my blog, Minnesota Native Daughter.
