Princess Charlene

Fiona Fitzsimons on Riviera Radio News regarding Princess Charlene report

 

While the ancestries of Prince Albert II and his mother, Princess Grace , are well known, Research commissioned by Tourism Ireland and carried out by genealogy researcher Fiona Fitzsimons of Eneclann has revealed that Princess Charlene’s ancestors can be traced all the way back to the 1520s and to a prominent Dublin family called the Fagans.

Eneclann trace Princess Charlene’s Irish ancestors back to 16th century Dublin

Princess Charlene 1024x658 Eneclann trace Princess Charlene’s Irish ancestors back to 16th century Dublin

From L-R: Prince Albert, Princess Charlene, Finola O’Mahony, head of Europe,Tourism Ireland,Rory Montgomery irish ambassador to France and Fiona Fitzsimons Eneclann Director and Expert researcher.

Eneclann have researched and prepared a family tree tracing Princess Charlene’s descent through her paternal grandmother back an amazing sixteen generations all the way back to the 1520’s

On Tuesday 29th July, at the invitation of Tourism Ireland, renowned genealogist Fiona Fitzsimons met Princess Charlene of Monaco to discuss the exploits and personalities of her Irish ancestors – the Fagans of Feltrim (co. Dublin) and later of Killarney (co. Kerry). The Princess was also presented with a Certificate of Irish Heritage by HE Rory Montgomery, Irish Ambassador to France, at the palace in Monaco, which was also attended by Prince Albert.

Research commissioned by Tourism Ireland and carried out by genealogy researcher Fiona Fitzsimons of Eneclann has revealed that Princess Charlene’s ancestors can be traced all the way back to the 1520s and to a prominent Dublin family called the Fagans.

From 1524, over 16 generations, the Fagans were involved in key events in Irish History and left an indelible mark in the Irish landscape – including Christ Church Cathedral, Trinity College and the Phoenix Park.

In the 1500s the Fagans became immensely wealthy through international commerce. They reinvested their profits in lands close to the capital, and provided finance to the Irish crown government.  By the early 1600s the Fagans controlled more than 5000 acres in Dublin County, including the city’s deep-water port at Bulloch Harbour in Dalkey.

 

Fiona Fitzsimons said: “I met with the Princely couple in the Palace, and described how the Princess’s Fagan ancestors made their mark on Irish history. They received the presentation with great enthusiasm and asked many many questions. Princess Charlene is delighted that Ireland has claimed her as their own”

“It’s a great story about the Irish Capacity to adapt in extreme circumstances and reinvent themselves”

The Irish Heritage Certificate is an initiative, which was introduced in September 2011 and is open to anyone born outside of Ireland with an Irish ancestor. It is an official recognition by the Irish Government of those who are proud of their Irish ancestry and heritage.

Research Tip of the week

It may be that we think we have mined everything we can about our families from the 1901 and 1911 Census. But a few recent searches have had me re evaluate this idea.

It can be so difficult to select the correct family when the name is one that proliferates. It seems, at the outset to be impossible.
But along the way, we may establish a county of birth and that can narrow down our search.

Then we may learn an occupation and this can be really key in selecting the correct record.  But, even at that point, – given the proliferation of labourers in Ireland’s economy of the opening decades of the 20th century – we can be still be faced with a choice.Great care is needed at this point to ensure we do not dismiss records from our search.

We might expect to find, the pairing of say a husband and wife, the parents of children we have found. But, we should be mindful of the fact that one or other parent may have died and remarried. Pay particular attention, in the 1911 Census, to the number of years married.

If the wife indicates that she has been married for ten years, yet there are persons listed as children as the head of household who are older than ten, then you have to dig deeper.

The children {of whatever age} are correctly enumerated as the offspring of the head of household. But these children are not necessarily the children
of his wife.
If you are very fortunate, the second marriage of this head of household may be civilly registered, where his first marriage was not. In this way, you may be able to bring a family back, through following the clues in the census, to an earlier generation.

Research Expert,

FINALGeorge Clooney's Kilkenny connection p1 and 2-1

George Clooney’s Kilkenny Connections

Using newly available records on www.findmypast.ie renowned genealogist Fiona Fitzsimons discovered Clooney’s Irish ancestors didn’t jump, but were pushed.

Clooney’s Irish ancestors were small farmers from Windgap, co. Kilkenny. In the 1850s local farmers competed for land.
This sometimes tipped-over into violence. New evidence proves that in 1852 Nicholas Clooney (George’s great x 2 grandfather) was violently assaulted. Months later he was harrased through the court system.

“In 1852 Nicholas Clooney suffered a real injustice. He decided shortly after to leave Ireland and settle in Kentucky. The rest is history.” Says Fiona.

Research showed that Nicholas’s widowed mother (George Clooney’s great x3 grandmother) remained behind in Ireland.
“Now through a family connection and for the first time, we have photographs of the old Clooney house and farm taken in the 1930s, 40s and 50s. The photos show a way of life now vanished. It’s closer in time, and probably also in terms of experience, to the life of the immigrant Clooneys.”

CHAPELIZOD DERELICTION

835de9d8 8479 4cc8 94ed c222c741c78e Latest Eneclann Newsletter: 1st of July 2014

 

Debbie Chapman is a Chapelizod artist, and is running a project that will be exploring the issue of dereliction in Chapelizod, and the fact that so many buildings have been left empty and derelict, even while there’s a housing crisis.

34c82998 a658 4782 a7a2 48118e6a4d1f Latest Eneclann Newsletter: 1st of July 2014  

Eneclann is providing historical research on who’s lived in the village of Chapelizod in the last 150 years.This is a Community Based Arts Project responding to the large number of derelict buildings in Chapelizod Village, Dublin and it’s environs. Debbie will be drawing on the real stories of past lives as the inspiration for her art.Recently, Dublin council bought a derelict site with ruined houses from the early 1700s, to redevelop.
The council has put a hoarding up outside these houses, and Debbie Chapman has been asked to design and paint the hoarding.

The purpose of this project is to explore the impact of decline and deterioration of historic buildings at the centre of Chapelizod’s village and through shared artistic practice create a strong sense of place within the current community.

a2f3bdd8 b9a4 40dc 98e6 f701ebd98258 Latest Eneclann Newsletter: 1st of July 2014 The intended outputs of the project are to create artistic interventions instilled with community consciousness and deliver a series of community arts events, which will have a positive impact on local people, affected by the decline in their immediate environment.

63954967 383a 4868 8784 4ea7059f990c Latest Eneclann Newsletter: 1st of July 2014

Large wooden cut-outs with painted images from the past will be attached to the hoarding.

The project will culminate in a collaborative Visual Arts Exhibition to be held in the village accompanied by a Project Book and a Public Art Installation in Sept/Oct 2014.

The project, is led by artist Debbie Chapman, and is funded by Dublin City Council, Ballyfermot/Chapelizod Partnership and Eneclann.

We will provide you with regular updates over the summer, to track the project’s progress which we will feature in our newsletters and also on ourwebsite blog.

History Ireland Magazine, “Kindred Lines”

aa851791 ee00 4ec8 ac32 c196769dfba5 Latest Eneclann Newsletter: 1st of July 2014

Check out Fiona Fitzsimons’ column, Kindred Lines in the July/August 2014 edition ofHistory Ireland.

This month Fiona writes about what records survive to trace your ancestors involved in WWI

“Irish involvement in the First World War is contentious, and historians cannot agree on either the numbers of Irish engaged in the conflict, or the number of Irish war dead. Official estimates are 210,000 mobilised and 49,300 dead, but these figures are open to challenge.

 


Research Tip of the Week!

Most researchers tracing an Irish WWI ancestor will start with the Army Service Records, the largest of all the British Services.
Less than half of all service records actually survive, because of archival destruction during the London Blitz in 1940/41.

From the original 6 ½ million+ service records, only 3 million now survive.
There are however several other sources that can help you bridge this gap in the British Army Service records.

Everyone who served overseas was entitled to the British and Victory (Campaign) medals. A lesser number of people also received awards for gallantry or distinguished service.

The National Archives U.K. has over 5 million records for British Army Medal index cards 1914-1920.

The medal cards include the recipient’s name, service number, rank and unit and are available online athttp://www.nationalarchives.gov.uk/records/medal-index-cards-ww1.htm

In addition to the traditional British Armed Services the medal cards include women’s services, the Indian Army, and some civilians.

Family History Research Winner!

Last month’s winner of“Ireland of the Welcomes” Magazine competition prize, afamily history research andpublicationspackage worth over €1000 provided byEneclann, was a Mr John Egan from the city of Humble in Texas.

We caught up with John to ask him how he felt about winning this research prize with us, his response was one of great excitement and we are delighted to have such a worthy winner.

cc18eba9 ec2d 45a3 bbd7 1d08d1376ef0 Latest Eneclann Newsletter: 9th of June 2014  

How did you feel when you found out you had won the competition from the Ireland of the welcomes magazine?

“I was very happy to find out I had won the services of such a professional team like Eneclann.

One of my cousins has done some research and developed a family tree starting back with the birth of Michael Egan, born 1824 in Marystown so I know there must be so much more to find out.

Winning this was just perfect. It will be wonderful to have an expert update of our family history. I am very excited, but also so curious to see what might be found in the research, it will also be interesting to see if this research will provide me with the sufficient information to obtain an Irish citizenship and passport. I have always really wanted to know my ancestry and now, with confidence, will have it fully documented by the experts at Eneclann”

The Quakers have been in Ireland since 1654. In this workshop Noel Jenkins provides an introduction to their records and beliefs, and discusses other records that have been generated from these original documents. In particular, those records that document their involvement in and contribution to Irish society. Of particular interest are the records of the Liberty Creche opened in 1830; the Claremount Institute opened in 1824; Cork Penny Dinners; Bloomfield Hospital, and the Quaker schools around Ireland.

The workshop concludes with a tour of the Library and Strong Room including viewing Quaker memorabilia.

There will be 6 computers available to explore the Mega Database, which includes an overview of everything in the building.
We will provide tea and coffee at lunchtime, so people are requested to bring some lunch.

Numbers are strictly limited, and anyone who would like to attend this free workshop should apply for a ticket by writing toworkshop@eneclann.ie
Tickets will be assigned on a first come basis.


Research Tip of the Week!

 

The availability of the Will Calendars on the website of the National Archive canbe very useful to family researchers.
It may be that you have searched online indexes for a death without success.

It may seem obvious that the person you seek would have died in Ireland so why is their death not in the records of the General Register Office?
When searching the Wills Calendars online, follow one of the golden rules
of genealogy by keeping your search as wide as possible.

Take the example of Sir Thomas Wyse, MP of Waterford.
If you input Wyse, Thomas and put in the county, you will not have any success.
However, if you input Wyse, Thomas, leaving the county blank, you will see that Sir Thomas Wyse, MP, late of the Manor of St John of Waterford, in fact died in Greece, while he was serving as a Minister in Her Majesty’s government.

By narrowing down your search at an early stage, you risk losing the very record you seek.

“We’re very happy to have been chosen to provide the genealogy advisory service again this summer.  We look forward to working alongside Francis O’Carroll and Christina McDonnell, our professional colleagues from the Library,”

“In Summer 2012 and 2013 we saw a significant rise in the numbers that availed of the genealogy service.  We hope to welcome a record number of visitors to the Library this summer.”

“We are delighted to be part of this wonderful role for a third year running.  It’s a privilege for us to assist visitors to the Library and to help them trace their family history.  Being part of the Library’s genealogy service allows us to share our expertise, but it means we come face to face with the ordinary Joe or Josephine, and learn what they are most interested in.  We love to team up with our friends in Eneclann: both organisations can work together to help the public with all their research needs”
