Dear Eneclann customer,

New publications

We have 12 new publications this newsletter, including the launch of a new series (see below).

Father Senan (Ed.), The Capuchin Annual, 1942, 1941 is possibly one of the most eclectic annuals ever produced. This edition of the Annual is of particular interest as it was published shortly after the 25th anniversary of the 1916 Rising. With about 270 pages dedicated to the Easter Rising in Ireland, this edition provided a unique look at the events of the 1916 Rising as well as the commemorations.

Leitch Ritchie, Ireland Picturesque and Romantic, 1838 is a welcome addition to the collection of travelogues on Ireland.  Check out our special topic focus offer below which is to coincide with this new release.

Returns of the Corporation of the Coleraine Borough, 1832 is an extremely valuable source for researching ancestors in Coleraine, Co. Derry, listing lists those who were elected, admitted, or sworn in as Freemen of the Corporation of Coleraine.

Distress (Ireland), Treasury Minute dated 10th March, 1847, And the First Report of the Relief Commissioners, 1847 marks the beginning of a new temporary relief system to help deal with the growing distress and starvation in Ireland.

We have three new titles of British interest: Returns from the several Dioceses in England and Wales, respecting the Register Books of Baptisms, Marriages and Burials, within all Parishes and Chapelries, 1831; Parliamentary Report, The Ninth Annual Report of the Poor Law Commissioners, 1843 and Parliamentary Report, The Twelfth Annual Report of the Poor Law Commissioners, 1846.

The O’Neill Lineages Project

Eneclann’s Fiona Fitzsimons was invited to give a paper by the O’Neill Clan Gathering last Friday, the 24th May.  The paper was on the O’Neill Lineages Project, tracing the main O’Neill lineages that emerged between the 13th and 17th centuries with geneticists defining the ‘genetic signature’ for each.  As you might expect, feedback from the talk was overwhelmingly positive.  Consequently, Fiona has decided to make available online a brief outline of what was discussed.  Read more about the O’Neill Lineages Project.  Image reproduced under the terms of Wikipedia Commons.


Topic Focus – Travel Writing Special Offer

Has the recent sunshine got you in the holiday mood?  Well, you’re not the only ones – until Thursday 13th June 2013 our range of travel writing titles are half price!

There’s not enough space in the newsletter to describe all these titles, but suffice to say that they date from as far back as 1739 and describe both the country as a whole and particular areas of it.  Good examples of these publications include Tyner’s Traveller’s Guide Through Ireland and Inglis’s A Journey Throughout Ireland.  Tyner’s was published in 1794 and is a remarkable and rare publication. It is an essential research tool for anyone studying late 18th century Irish history.  A bit later, dating from 1834, is Inglis’s A Journey Throughout Ireland, considered to be one of the most important early nineteenth century commentaries on Ireland.

What’s Going On?

Plenty, as usual!  You can see what history, genealogy and archaeology events are coming up on our website.  Of particular interest to many of you will be the Ferns Gathering weekend.  On the afternoon of Saturday 8th June Eneclann is sponsoring and conducting genealogy workshops.  Later that same afternoon Dr. Stephen Harrison will be speaking on the Wexford battles researched through the Irish Battlefields Project that Eneclann was a part of.
