National Library of Ireland – Catholic Parish Registers – LIVE

This is a recording of a class I gave in September 2015 at the West Stake Family History Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Showing how to view images online of the National Library of Ireland’s “Catholic Parish Register Digitisation Project”.

Launched 8 July 2015, the National Library of Ireland made available online its entire collection of Catholic Church parish registers. The registers had only been available on microfilm prior to this project. This class will show how to maneuver around the website, and will dedicate some class time for live search requests from the audience.

Please note: It is critical to know the location where the ancestors lived prior to searching these records. It is recommended for attendees who do not have location information to take the class “Building the bridge back to Ireland” or watch the video of last year’s class on that subject. (YouTube videos can be found by searching “Finding Grandpa Genealogy”.)

NOTE: At the 15:10 minute mark I said “June” and it should have been “January”.

Arlington Court & The National Trust’s Carriage Collection North Devon

Views:533|Rating:3.33|View Time:4:Minutes|Likes:4|Dislikes:2
Arlington Court is a neoclassical style country house built 1820-23, situated in the parish of Arlington, next to the parish church of St James, 5 1/4 miles NE of Barnstaple, North Devon, England.
The house was commissioned by Colonel John Palmer Chichester (1769-1823) to the design of the North Devon architect Thomas Lee, replacing the earlier Georgian house of about 1790, built on a different site and demolished, designed by John Meadows. Arlington Court was considerably expanded in 1865 by John Palmer Chichester’s grandson, Sir Sir Alexander Palmer Bruce Chichester, 2nd Baronet (1842-1881), son of Sir John Palmer Bruce Chichester, 1st Baronet (d.1851). In 1873 according to the Return of Owners of Land, 1873 the Arlington estate comprised about 5,300 acres.
Sir Bruce’s unmarried daughter and heiress, Rosalie Chichester (d.1949), donated the mansion to the National Trust together with 3,500 acres (14 km2) two years before her death in 1949.
Today, the house, together with the Chichester family’s collection of antique furniture and an eclectic collection of family memorabilia, is fully open to the public.
The National Trust describes the property as “Arlington Court & The National Trust’s Carriage Collection”. The property is home to its collection of over 50 horse-drawn carriages, ranging from the humble Hansom cab to the grandiose State Coach.

SEWARD ALASKA [4k] Glacier Kayaking – Kenai Fjords National Park

Views:5229|Rating:4.97|View Time:9:13Minutes|Likes:285|Dislikes:2
Seward lies in the Kenai peninsula and should definitely be a stop on your Alaskan Road Trip. Even the drive here from the airport is listed as one of the most beautiful in the country.

We make and sell travel products on Amazon. They’re totally rad.

Today we venture to Seward – with 2 more people in tow. On our way back from Valdez we swung through Anchorage to pick up my parents while waiting at the coolest Airport Cell Phone Pick up lot we’ve ever seen.

For $40 you can park oceanside with water and electric and even dry camp on a budget with cruise ships out your front window for $20

The main reason we’re here is my number one Alaska bucket list item: kayak to a glacier. We’re heading out on a ferry to a remote island inside the Kenai Fjords National Park where our wilderness guides keep their kayaks. Already, just on the ferry ride we were visited by sea otters, harbor seals, bald eagles, puffins and were surrounded by ice, glaciers AND lush temperate rainforests. Yes, rainforest, in Alaska.

How do we know all this? This is our Wilderness Guide Norris. We booked a full day trip with Kayak Adventures Worldwide and, while we were sharing the ferry with other groups, it was just Norris and the four of us that were going to be off exploring the glacier. You know how sometimes it’s just the luck of the draw? Well, we were quite “lucky” with Norris. He was immediately on board for our shenanigans, so we just handed over the camera and said – ok – you’re in charge of YouTube today 😊

Yes, it cold; it was wet; but it was one of the most incredible places we have ever been. It was time to paddle back to “kayak island” to be picked up by the ferry, and, with some time to kill, we decided to interview a WILDERNESS EXPERT on how to stay “bear aware” in the park.

Wet, tired, hungry and cold we laughed on the way back and we applauded Tim’s parents who hadn’t hardly been with us for 24 hours before we threw them into one of the most challenging days of the trip.

This video is not in any way sponsored by kayak adventure worldwide nor did we receive this trip for free. This was a serendipitous day with a great guide and company. At the end of our trip each participant selects a eco friendly non profit to donate to. Out of all of the guided adventures and tour companies we taken throughout our travels, this by far was the best experience and we hope you give them a look if you are visiting Alaska.

Stay tuned for Thursday where we show the stark difference of what happens when you DON’T get a assigned a great guide as we go Halibut fishing out of Homer with someone who would rather be Moose hunting.
